Christmas time in Milano

This weekend was the Festa di St. Ambrogio.  St. Ambrogio is the patron saint of Milan and every year on December 7th they celebrate with wonderful holiday markets and fairs. To make things even more magical on friday it snowed for the first time this year!  The whole city had a wonderful christmas feel:)  Here are some photos from the weekend…

Wonderful Sicilian sweets at the Christmas market!

More sweets! The cannolis were to die for.

The beautiful canal is FINALLY full again!

After going to all of the markets in the city center we took a trip out to L’ARTIGIANO IN FIER . It is an incredible fair with foods and crafts from all over the world.  It takes place in a massive expo center.  We spent hours eating and sampling the best foods from all around the world.  This bread is from the region Puglia in the south of Italy.

Now that’s a big piece of bread!
