The tiny medieval village aptly named Candelara (Le Marche) is the host to an unique holiday market in Italy - lite only by candles. The first & second weekend of December all artificial lights are turned off for Candele a Candelara, and the city is lite only by the glow of wax candles. Visitors marvel at the myriad of candles available for purchase (along with loads of other holiday gifts & chatchkies), glimpse a sight of Babbo Natale and sip spiced wine as they wander the glowing cobble stone streets.
Don't miss the living nativity scene, reenactments of Pinocchio by street artists and Santa's Workshop for the kids!
The flickering candlelight, crisp air & Christmas joy make for a magical night and one of a kind market in Le Marche!
