The first Saturday of December you’ll find this beautiful Christmas market in the little town of Lanzo.
Unfortunately I didn’t have much time to visit, since my son had to reach a birthday party. But he did get time for a short ride on a donkey!
There were 5 lovely donkeys in service for the kids, and they had such a long winter coat! Just like teddy bears.. I love donkeys and would love to keep one for my son…
After the short ride we walked to piazza Gallenga to have a look at all the homemade and gastronomic products sold by the locals.
Lanzo is a community that knows how to make things happen. A lot of local artists are partecipating in many events in this town, and of course today was not an exception!
Also the lovely lady in the bakery on the corner had a great stand. She makes pasta in the back of the shop and sells homemade cookies, local cheese and honey.
After a way too fast walk we reached the famous bar Turcet where we met some friends. Just finishing the cappuccino we had to go away to reach the party in time.
Just as fast as we got into the Christmas magic, we got out of it!
