Christmas markets in Verona: the biggest in Italy

On Friday, November 16th, the famous Christmas markets have begun, throughout the province of Verona, to illuminate and warm the hearts of many Christmas fans. Le Figaro, a well-known French newspaper, has awarded Verona Christmas market as the fourth tourist attraction in Europe, behind only those in Vienna, Budapest and Copenhagen. Last December, more than 4 and a half million presences were recorded and, this year, the goal announced by the Verona mayor Sboarina is to exceed 5 million visitors who would create revenues of more than 50 million euros. The main Christmas markets, in addition to those in the center of Verona, are located in Garda, Malcesine and Bussolengo.
