Immediately I was brought back to my childhood and stood in fascination at the detail and craftsmanship that went into creating this miniature village. There are also nice choices for gifts to bring back for adults and children.

We love this little souvenir store. It is full of all the usual souvenirs but is special because of their small Italien figures that can move. The store is definitely worth a visit.

This little shop, full of unbelievable characters and nativity-related scenes (forget the pack of unforgettable souvenirs for tourists who occupy part of the space, probably at a higher turnover in terms of sales, but without any real interest) shows at what level an artist can...More

It does not consume much time, maybe 15 to 30 minutes. The moving scenery shown is amazing and definitely worth checking out, since it is also free. Plus, at the store you can buy lots of souvenirs.
