Discovering the “Super” Christmas in Milan: between Christmas villages and multiculturalism

Welcome to this new appointment for November, full of Christmas atmosphere in view of the arrival of the most magical time of the year. Last week we left you with the second part of our Top 10 on the most beautiful Christmas markets in Europe: from Dresden to Bruges, passing through Prague, Munich and Nuremberg. Which of the many cities has captured your heart?

If you are still undecided, has reserved for you another destination that deserves to be added to the list of the most beautiful cities in this magical period. Yeah, we never cease to amaze you!! You may already be wondering which city it is, we will tell you immediately: today we fly to Italy and precisely to Milan, a city that hosts many events for Christmas (and not only during this time) that will make your stay in the city pleasant. From the biggest Christmas village in Italy to one of the most important Christmas fairs dedicated to food and crafts, the Artisan Fair, leaving room for the atmosphere of the entire city and its illustrious neighborhoods.

But let’s go in order! Trees scattered around the city, twinkling lights, skating rinks, markets, Christmas villages and the inevitable opening season of the La Scala theatre. There are many attractions and events in this city that will make you live a magical atmosphere. Well, all that remains is to discover together the best of everything. Let’s start right from the center of Milan and in particular from the event that is the master in the first week of December: the lighting of the Tree in Piazza Duomo. A special event that shouldn’t be missed in which a stage of lights and shows recount Christmas in a surprising countdown. Everything takes place right next to the wonderful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, which during this time turns into a sparkle of lights coming from its imposing dome and from the tree located in an octagon: the perfect background for your Christmas selfies.

We all know that Milan is the city of fashion so why not admire some shop windows? From via Mercanti to via Dante, from Corso Venezia to Montenapoleone, the beautiful themed decorations that invade the windows of the boutiques in these streets will leave you breathless and will be the setting for your walks. The decorations conceived by the designers of the most illustrious fashion houses will make you live through a unique sensory experience composed of lights and colors!

But that’s not all! So far we have brought you on the discovery of the magical atmosphere offered by the city of Milan, but to immerse yourself in the “super” Milanese Christmas, you cannot miss the biggest Christmas village in Italy. An enormous park divided into three worlds that will bring you into the magical world of Santa Claus: from the large toy factory, the house of Santa and the elves to the great sled. Moving on there is an area dedicated to the letters that little ones can write to Santa and send directly to the Village Post Office. An experience that will make you become a child again!
