December in Italy
- Rural Italians slaughter their pigs in December.
- Christmas and New Years celebrations are big in Italy. Look for all the Nativity Scenes, called Presepi. Some are Mechanical and you can increasingly find Live Presepi, where locals act out the scene. See: 5 Things to Do in Winter from Martha's Italy.
- Weather is always a concern this time of year. See our Italy Weather and Climate Charts to see current and average weather for December in many tourist cities and towns.
