Each year, in the weeks before the Christmas holidays, venues are transformed into fascinating places, illuminated with glittering lights and filled with the spirit of festive cheer. Today Christmas markets serve much the same function that they have for centuries – as a festive meeting place and a one-of-a-kind opportunity to shop for unique gifts in a joyful atmosphere while discovering new places selling artisanal creations, Christmas ornaments and decorations and gastronomic specialties. In the month of December Zani Viaggi will be offering guided day tours by bus to the most characteristic Christmas markets including those of Bolzano, Merano, Aosta and Bressanone (see main picture).
