This list is by no means exhaustive, and includes mainly bigger Christmas markets that we could find official websites and dates for. Let us know in the comments if you have any more we should add.

NOTE: Most Christmas markets don’t announce their confirmed dates until a few months before, so please excuse the sparse list for the time being! We’ll be sure to update this list with more dates as soon as they are released. Let us know in the comments if you know of any we should add for 2024!

Italy Christmas Market Opening Dates 2024

As of February 2024, only the dates for some of Italy’s largest Christmas markets have been announced. We will update this page as we learn more.

But for now, here is a table summarizing the opening dates of 2024 Italy Christmas markets that we know of so far.

NOTE: For Christmas markets in the northern parts of Italy where German is widely spoken, we’ve provided the location names in both Italian and German, as both appear in promotional materials depending on which language you’re browsing in. In the case of cities with famous English names, we have included those with the Italian names in brackets.

Referencing this information on your own website or article? We’ve put a lot of work into researching and creating these Christmas Market resources for our visitors, so we would greatly appreciate if you referenced/credited us with a link back to this page. Thank you for your understanding!

    • Hi Hala, we have not yet been able to find any official dates for those events. We assume organizers are waiting until closer to the festive period to make a final decision, dependent on how cases/numbers develop. We will be sure to update this post when we hear more!
