Trento will host the well-known Christmas Market in the charming Piazza Fiera. About 500,000 visitors come every year to admire the 90 stands displaying gift ideas and food. Among the highlights: local specialties, exhibitions and side events.
Trento Christmas Markets: the products
The exhibitors of the Christmas Market in Trento come from Trentino, South Tyrol and different regions of Northern Italy: this proves the importance gained by the market in the last years. Here you will find a broad range of handicrafts, such as Christmas decorations, candles, nativity scenes, pictures with pressed flowers, but also an excellent gift packaging service, as well as 16 stands with the Market Flavors, a real gourmet paradise where you can taste sweet and salty specialties from Trentino and Alto Adige, such as Tortel de patate, Cevap from Valle dei Mocheni, Knödeln (dumplings) and pastries, to enjoy with some hot chocolate, mulled wine or Parampampoli.
