Florence before Christmas 

By December the streets in the centre of Florence will be decorated with lights and Piazza Repubblica and Piazza Duomo will put up their annual Christmas trees. But you really know Christmas is coming when Piazza Santa Croce sets up for the annual German Christmas Market (Heidelberger Weihnachtsmarkt).Florence Xmas Every year the 500 years old market of the German town Heidelberg comes to Florence with its holiday tradition and festive atmosphere.
