As per Milanese Christmas tradition, on December 5th the big Christmas tree in Piazza Duomo lights up to be brighter than ever. Over 35 thousand LED points and hundreds of blue decorations will illuminate the square.
The tree, a 25-meter spruce from the Val di Sole, Trentino, is sponsored by Unipol, that will light up the Torre Galfa, too: from November 29th to January 6th 2019 a luminous installation in the shape of a Christmas tree enriches the façade of the tower making it the tallest Christmas tree in Milan. At the top of the tree there is a comet star with a diameter of 4 meters and composed of 2,000 LEDs.
Other trees are added in different places in the city. First of all, the shining Tree in the Octagon of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which always amazes not only those who walk under the festive light, but also those who are in the square and, through the arch of honor, sees this jewel-like tree stand out in the "living room" of the Milanese.
A special tree is the one set up by OPPO in Piazza XXIV Maggio, a real installation of design and lighting 20 meters high, with an internal staircase that allows access to the balcony, located at 9 meters high, from which to admire the Navigli and the Darsena lit up for partying while inside it is enveloped by a starry sky.
In Corso Vittorio Emanuele, on the corner with Piazza San Babila, the luminous tubes of the Bulgari tree stand out, while Piazza Gae Aulenti hosts the Esselunga Christmas tree and Piazza Tre Torri, in the Citylife district, the Christmas tree set up by Huawei.
The Quadrilatero della Moda, which in Via Montenapoleone and in the surrounding streets offers the Christmas Shopping Experience initiative, is not to be missed: music, events and shows as well as a sparkling Christmas tree in Piazza Croce Rossa.
It’s not over, yet: the whole city dresses at parties to celebrate the most loved day of the year. Both the squares of the city center and the outskirts will be festively decorated with miles of light installations, to spread everywhere the joyful atmosphere of the most loved party of the year.
And don't forget to enjoy yourself on the ice skating rinks in the city.
