Christmas or New Year on Lake Como? Great idea! The traditional Christmas festival of magic lights (Città dei Balocchi) runs annually from the end of November till the middle of January. The most beautiful light installations are located in Como at the following squares: piazza Volta, piazza Duomo, piazza San Fedele.
A Christmas market and ice rink are open in Como’s Piazza Cavour. At the Christmas market in Como, the local artisans sell souvenirs, jewelry, toys, as well as sweets, farm cheeses, and sausages. And, of course, hot mulled wine. Magic houses, festive illumination, Lake Como, and snow-capped mountain peaks create an unforgettable winter experience.
