One of the most famous is the Weihnachtsmarkt, the traditional German Christmas market in piazza Santa Croce. You can taste Tuscan products as well as food, mulled wine and beer from all over Europe. The market is composed of little wooden houses built for selling culinary products and handmade objects for your Christmas gifts. It runs from November 28 to December 20.
November 30 and December 1 and 2 at Palazzo Capponi in Lungarno Soderini, a Christmas event will support the Italian Croce Rossa (Red Cross) volunteer association.
For another charity cause, from November 30 to December 2, in Palazzo Corsini there’s the event Natale per File organized by “File”, the Italian foundation dedicated to palliative care. This market will be powered by many important brands that will donate a portion of their proceeds to the association.
On December 8 and 9 in Piazza Santissima Annunziata you’ll find a little fair called Fierucola dell’Immacolata and the Fierucolina di Natale will take place in Piazza Santo Spirito on December 16.
In Empoli, near Florence, from November 30 to January 6, there's Natale Empoli, a series of initiatives from the amusement park, the magic world of Santa, the toy factory, the Befana witch's house, Christmas markets, a big special snowfall and the great magic tree show.
