The Christmas Festival in Trento, Italy

About two and a half hours Northeast of Milan is the city of Trento, where one of Italy’s largest Christmas Festival takes place. There are around 50+ vendors that set up just outside the center of town to sell their food and gifts. There are numerous hand made Christmas decorations/gifts and food from all over Europe. Something else you will always find at the Christmas festivals is homemade hot wine Vin Brulee. It is an acquired taste, but if you can find one that has a lot of spices in it, it can be a tasty warming treat!









While in Trento we ate at an Austrian restaurant called Ristorante Birreria Forsterbrau Trento. The food was mediocre at best, but the decor and staff are fun and authentic.




Although Trento has the “largest” Christmas festival in Italy, you can walk through it and see everything in an hour or two. The city itself is very pretty and there are tons of little windy streets to explore. Also, make sure to be there at night because they string up tons of Christmas lights all over the streets.

  1. I love your blog, it’s so awesome what your experiencing!! I went to Italy for 2 weeks when Kenny was stationed there & he showed me all the ‘secret’ spots! it was the most amazing trip & your blog takes me back!


  2. I’m delighted I came across your site and was wondering if you or any of your readers can give me some advice about recruitment in Italy. I’m working for a company that is looking to expand into Milan and was wondering if anyone had any advice on the best places to advertise locally. We are looking for English speaking businessmanagers so any advice would be greatly appreciated. We’ve advertised on Linkedin and but haven’t had much luck attracting the right applicants.


    • A place you may consider is Easy Milano. It is an English publication for expats, I avtaully worked there for a year. You can take out a free classified or buy a quarter page or bigger for a fee. Check out the website and see all the others that currently advertise with them. When you call ask for Amie, she is American and one of the owners. She can guide you in the right direction. Good luck.
