Yes, dear friends, we are talking about the Santa Claus Village in Chianciano and the Christmas Market of Chianciano Terme, two great events included in the calendar of events during Christmas in Chianciano, Tuscany.

Known throughout Italy for its thermal baths, from 23 November to 6 January 2020, Chianciano Terme will transform itself into a romantic Christmas Village, with many shows for both young and old, original scenes and lots of stalls where you will be able to buy nice gifts or taste typical products. Do not miss out on all that is going on at Christmas in Chianciano, Tuscany!

Let us have a look at the major attractions of the Paese di Babbo Natale in Chianciano Terme in 2019: given the success achieved in previous years, an ice-skating rink in Chianciano has been confirmed for this year, which will be placed in the centre of the main city square, Piazza Italia. Adults and children alike can try their hand at this fun sport bringing their own skate or hiring them on site.

If you want to visit the old town of Chianciano without getting tired at the end of it, take the 'H-Express', the fun-filled tourist train that will transport you across the village in comfort! Indeed some of the events take place right in the historical centre: street artists performances, gospel choirs and amusing puppet shows. The train is embellished with typical Christmas decorations, and will recreate the fantastic atmosphere of 'Polar Express', the famous animated film directed by Robert Zemeckis and masterfully acted by Tom Hanks. Come on board, the Polar Express of Chianciano awaits you!

And now, we come to the highlight of the event: fanfare and drum roll. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, here it comes ... the House of Santa Claus of Chianciano! In Chianciano, 2019, in the Acqua Santa Park, the home of Santa Claus will be set up which will offer, both adults and children, an enchanted experience with elves intended on wrapping gifts and sweet reindeers just waiting for you to pamper them!
