A warm holiday atmosphere surrounds Tuscany, from the smaller villages to the larger towns, including Florence and Siena. There are many events scheduled this December across the region, including several especially dedicated to families with small children who are the most eager to experience the magic of Christmas.
Among the various Christmas events taking place for families around Tuscany, there are several Santa villages set up and we have selected 4 which we think would be fun to try. Let us know how it goes!
