The Christmas Markets 2017

With the arrival of Christmas, the streets and squares of Emilia-Romagna will become colorful and lively thanks to Christmas markets: among handmade goods, fantastic creations, objects and a lot of good food, visitors, both locals and tourists, will be delighted, going back to being a child again even if just for a moment!


Music will lift our spirits as we walk slowly among the stands, discovering local products, crossing through historic city centers, a chance to visit the places we love while immersed in the perfect Christmas atmosphere.



From Piacenza to Rimini the calendar of towns ready to unveil their Christmas markets is continuously being updated. We’ll start from upper Emilia:

Bobbio welcomes Christmas with its markets on December 10, alongside the local Snail Fair.


Also not far from Piacenza Grazzano Visconti from December 3 will enrich the streets of the town with markets of artistic objects and crafts, and in the stores there will be wrought iron objects, perfumes, soaps, sweets, honey, original decorations, and many gift ideas!


But these surprises are not enough because in Castell’Arquato there will be Winterland: an enchanted day made up of nativity lights, exhibitions and Christmas trees to discover and buy crafts, decorations, food, local products and gifts while enjoying roasted chestnuts, mulled wine and many other food and wine specialties. Need we say more? On December 8 don’t make other plans.


Going down to Parma where quality crafts and foods await you in Piazza Ghiaia with an elegant avenue of stands as white as snowflakes. From November 26 an unmissable event.


Moving towards the seaside, we hit Ferrara, which is also decorated for the holiday along the streets of the city center, starting from November 18. Markets, shows, luminaries, ice skating rinks, a Christmas village for children, all that you would expect from a Christmas with a capital “C”.



“E nadel l’è e nadel neca in Rumagna” (Christmas is Christmas also in Romagna)! Forlì is no exception with a series of interesting events in and around the city:

from December 24 Modigliana will celebrate its Zoc ad nadel, a perfect occasion to discover the custom in this town of lighting a big fire in the square which will burn until Epiphany. If you do not like the cold, this is the right event for you.


Moving towards Forlì passing through Terra del Sole, which on December 8 will host Al Bancheti ad Nadel, with antiques, Christmas objects and the good food of Romagna. Are you craving piadina?


And so we reach downtown Forlì, in its Piazzetta della Misura, at the foot of the clocktower, where every year it is possible to enjoy sweets and Christmas decorations in a setting with the true spirit of Christmas. From December 1 until January 6 the city will be ready to celebrate the arrival of Santa Claus, especially on Sundays 10, 17 and 24 December, which will transform Piazza Cavour , Piazza Ordelaffi, Via delle Torri and Piazza Saffi into a huge colorful market!
