Verona’s annual Christmas crib exhibition takes place in the Verona Arena and features more than 400 cribs from all over the world. The exhibition is accompanied by music and light shows. The tradition stems from the crusades of the 13th century when travel to the Middle East was impossible due to the fighting.

Throughout Italy, the feast of St Lucy is an important prequel to Christmas. The saint’s name, Lucy, comes from the Latin root ‘lux’, which means light, so St Lucy’s day is celebrated on the 13th December to mark the end of winter solstice and the reappearance of the sun in the north. In Verona, a Christmas market is set up in Piazza Bra where vendors sell food, small toys and Christmas gifts.
