Christmas Village | Montepulciano

After the extraordinary success of the previous editions, The Christmas Village returns to Montepulciano, with fun and surprises for the whole family. A unique experience for young and old, a new and fun way to spend the days of Advent and Christmas holidays in harmony and peace of mind, immersed in a fabulous setting, in one of the most beautiful towns of Tuscany.

Within the village, a typical Christmas market is located with seventy small wooden houses, where you can find gift ideas for yourself and your loved ones. Explore and visit Santa’s Castle, full of surprises and attractions, and not just for the little ones.

Santa’s Castle spans over an indoor area of more than 1000 sq.m., full of lights, decorations, and surprises where the children can meet Santa Claus while playing, singing and participating in didactic activities, entertainment, interactive shows and creative labs.

The quality and the originality of the products sold in the Market were carefully chosen by involving the artisan associations; there are several categories of different products:
Christmas decorations and adornments, food products, sweets, clothing and leather goods, local handicraft and much more.
Moreover, thanks to its wide pedestrian area, the Market is the perfect place to enjoy street food, to watch several exhibitions and shows and enjoy entertainment for the whole family.

Other attractions include an ice skating rink, exhibition of antique toys, pony mini ranch, and carousel.
