Cosa c’è di più suggestivo che immergersi nelle vie della città Magica curiosando tra le tante bancarelle dei mercatini natalizi? È l’occasione giusta per acquistare i regali di Natale o semplicemente per lasciarsi affascinare da un’atmosfera unica. I mercatini di Natale sono considerati il must delle festività, ecco quindi quelli da non perdere a Torino.
Natale è Reale 2021
The heated royal stables at the magical Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi, just outside Turin, hosts Natale è Reale 2021 on 4/5/8/11/12/18 and 19 December. Locals flock here to enjoy myriad activities for young and old, including an Elf Village, Santa Claus’ grotto, and of course the Christmas market. It’s a great place to buy handcrafted gifts, enjoy Xmas street food delicacies, and be entertained by a huge mechanical nativity scene and a calendar of special events at the Palazzina di Caccia museum.
The Adisco Mercatino di Natale
Between late October and 24 December, Adisco’s premises on Via Lagrange is swathed in a wondrous Christmas atmosphere, offering everything you need to make this Christmas truly special: decorations, sweets, cookies, panettone, chocolates, accessories, and above all solidarity. Once again this year, Adisco is raising funds for a good cause: all proceeds from sales go to projects to help the Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital in Turin.
Big Market – Christmas Edition
This December, the Turin Bunker invites you to its Christmas-style market: The Bunker Big Market - Christmas Edition. Come here for Christmas shopping, and take advantage of many vintage and local handmade items and original pieces. One area is completely dedicated to food, there’s a kids zone... in short, everything you need for an unforgettable day out.
Villaggio di Babbo Natale, Rivoli
Just outside Turin there’s a place with magical houses, goblins, and a frozen pond. For the Christmas period and new year festivities, the town of Rivoli is transformed into a huge, magical Santa’s Village, with a Santa’s house and bedroom, a gnome room, an elves’ workshop, and a typical Christmas market. Wooden houses throughout the village are laden with decorations, jewellery, candles, Christmas baskets, crafts and wooden gifts.
Where to Stay in Turin
The perfect end to a magical day among elves, gnomes, reindeer and Santa Claus is to stay the night somewhere magical like the Principi di Piemonte | UNA Esperienze, a historic 5-star hotel, ideally located in the heart of Turin. A symbol of ancient splendour, the hotel occupies an imposing Rationalist-style building, one of the city’s most refined architectural jewels, and Ristorante Casa Savoia by “UNA cucina” restaurant chef Michele Griglio serves up traditional Piedmontese fare with a unique, creative touch. .
