I adore Italy during the holiday season. All of my favorite places are extra bedazzled with lights and decorations. It’s lovely to walk through the Christmas markets with cioccolato calda (hot chocolate.) The Christmas markets offer delicious culinary specialities and crafts, which make the perfect gifts for loved ones. Luckily, the Christmas market in Venezia runs until January. If you’re in Italy or Europe during this holiday season be sure to visit the Christmas markets. Happy Holidays!
