Trento’s ancient heart is a lovely backdrop for the local Christmas markets, the old city walls are done up in lights and the wooden hut stalls seem at home selling hand made gift-y things and the tasty local treats Trento is known for. Food and drink are what people generally come here for – and of course to get a bit of Christmas cheer in the warm glow and mouth watering blend of smells – and a group of stalls will usually run a degustation event, which is probably the best way to ensure you try a bit of everything.

Trento’s location nearer to Germany and Austria – homes of the Christmas Market – than other Italian towns could be why they do it so well, but the beauty of the town, with its Gothic cathedrals and 13th Century castle twinkling warmly over the glacial valley and the local food and drink specialties are why its worth spending a few of your December days travelling to Trento.
