The biggest and most important Florence Christmas market is German instead of Italian; maybe because the snow and the myth of Santa Klaus coming from the North, the Florentines adopted this tradition in a very organic way. But, why is not there an Italian Christmas market in Florence? This market reflects mostly the North European character, with handcrafted and gastronomic products coming mostly from Germany but also from France, Poland, The Netherlands and the Czech Republic. Italy by itself possesses a powerful cultural, gastronomic and craftsmanship richness to have its own Italian Christmas market here in the Tuscan capital, however, the whole market is formed by around fifty cabins where the visitant can drink Glühwein (hot wine) and German beer or taste Bratwürste and Lebkuchen (German sausages and biscuits). The ambient is somehow sad and desperate, a completely dispensable experience!
