It’s all set to be a very Merry Christmas in beautiful Bologna this year.

Follow your local Bologna host as they share with you a little of what makes the festive season in their city so spectacular.

You’ll discover the traditions of Christmas here as you chat to your host and explore the Christmas markets under the adorned medieval porticos.

Wander through historic streets draped in twinkling lights and traditional jewel-hued garlands, soaking up the festive atmosphere and visiting the best-loved Christmas spots in the city.

Indulge in traditional festive treats like pandoro (an Italian sweet bread) and see the famous nativity scenes.

Perhaps you’d like to browse the Santa Lucia Christmas Market for hand-made gifts and decorations, or stroll through the Mercato di Mezzo to buy gourmet gifts and sample some of the traditional Christmas delicacies?

We’d like to do both! With your host, you can eat, drink and be merry Bolognese style!
