About Christmas in Verona

Christmas celebrations in Verona begin with the Feast of Santa Lucia on the night between the 12th and the 13th December, when, before going to bed, each child that celebrates Christmas leaves out a bowl of water and a carrot (for the traditional Christmas donkey), together with a little letter with a list of all the toys they would like. If they have been good, then Santa Lucia will bring them their presents, otherwise they will just get a piece of black coal akin to the traditions in the UK and America.

This tradition, which dates back to the Middle Ages, combines with several events around Verona that create a highly enjoyable Christmas atmosphere, including the traditional Santa Lucia Market held in Piazza Brà against an evocative background characterised by a white steel shooting star, whose comet tail is seen coming out from the Arena. This image has now become the symbol of Christmas in Verona and is a wonderful spectacle that you can enjoy on your Christmas break in Verona. For a few days before and after the Feast of Santa Lucia, you can stroll amongst the market stalls and take in the spontaneous displays organised by the vendors.

Another part of the fun is "Waiting for Santa Lucia" in Piazza Brà, where you can take part in "The Night of The Little Bells" (La Notte dei Campanellini), which spans four evenings and is centred around the historical antique merry-go-round, where children can enjoy fairy stories, play games and receive presents.

All these different events form part of the Christmas festivities in Verona and it really is an unforgettable experience if you are looking for a Christmas escape.
