Sant'Ambrogio (on December 7th) and Immaculate Conception (on December 8th) Days open the Christmas season in Genoa, offering you the chance to enjoy not only Genoa charm in winter time but also the shopping along the maze of little streets in the city centre, where you can easily get caught by local handicraft.

The usual "rendezvous" is the one in Piazza Piccapietra (just behind the Carlo Felice Theater) with the San Nicola Christmas Market. From 10 in the morning to 7.30 in the evening the square itself turns into a real papier-mache village: 80 local craftsmen have on show hand-worked wood, iron, glass, and ceramics items. Here you can also taste and eventually buy a wide selection of wine, cheese, cold cuts and sweets, locally made.   

Totally different is the San Porfirio Market, organized by the Teatro della Tosse: from December 1st to December 31st this local market puts on show objects, puppets, marionettes and old theatre stage settings from previous performances.

From December 5th to December 14th you can visit Natalidea - Ideaneve, an exhibition totally dedicated to hand-worked Christmas presents and suggestions for winter holidays.

Also the city centre gets crowded with Christmas stands in the area around Orefici, Soziglia and Campetto; which turns into a maze of stands and shops.

The Christmas Market in San Donato Church, right in the city centre, is a charity market, selling little tiny things, frames and records. Take the chance to have a look at the market but also to visit this amazing medieval church.

Along the lanes just opposite Genova Brignole you will find another maze of Christmas stands, starting at the beginning of December and going up to Christmas Eve.

Just outside Genoa city centre, at the Madonna della Guardia Sanctuary on Saturdays and Sundays in December a Christmas Market is on show, selling statues, huts and other little objects for the Christmas Nativity Scene.
