From the best DIY nativity scene to where to find the most delicious hot tipple, The Local brings you Italy's top ten Christmas markets.

Northern Italy boasts the most well-established Christmas markets, with the squares of Bolzano, Milan and elsewhere filling up with stalls each December.

But there are far more festive offerings across the country.

Head to Naples to pick up your Christmas decorations, Rome for your very own “good witch” of Italian folklore, and don't miss Sardinia for some local island goods.

For details of all of these and more, check out The Local's gallery of the top ten Christmas markets in Italy.
