Travel Bloggers Influencer Network (#TBIN) Members Share Their Top Picks For Christmas Markets That Should Be Visited in 2017!

Have you visited a Christmas Market or Holiday Market near home or when travelling?  WAVEJourney asked our Travel Bloggers Influencer Network (#TBIN) colleagues for their expert opinions about markets they have either visited and recommend, or those that are still on their wish list to visit soon.

 

Florence takes Christmas seriously and has multiple Christmas markets around the historic center of the city. Our favorite and the largest is on Piazza Santa Croce. The market is in a beautiful location in front of The Basilica di Santa Croce, built in 1294. Here you will find wooden booths full of holiday cheer. The booths are overflowing with crafts, decorations, food, and drink.

Our boys were drawn to the carts with an abundance of decadent candy, while we were tempted by the hot apple cider spiked with amaretto. Mmmm. Be sure to go into the Basilica to see some stunning art and visit the final resting places of Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and Galileo. Next, wander over to the Piazza del Duomo to see the massive Christmas tree and the nativity scene. After all this wandering, chill out on the Piazza Libertà at Florence’s annual ice rink.
