One of the most fun things to do at Christmas is to hang out with friends or go with the whole family to ice skate. Enjoy the thrill of doing a flip of the track, perhaps holding hands and without fear of falling: the padded coat certainly offers a softer landing in the event of a slip!

Here you can find the list of the skating rinks in Milano for the Super Christmas 2019. Do some acrobatics or stay attached to the entrance door because you just can't find the balance: the important thing is to have fun!

Piazza XXIV Maggio

5 DECEMBER 2019 – 2 FEBRUARY 2020

The ice rink is open from 10:00 to midnight.

Piazza Città di Lombardia – Palazzo della Regione

6 DECEMBER 2019 - 6 JANUARY 2020

 

Skating outdoors but indoors? It seems a contradiction, but in Milano it is possible! In Piazza Città di Lombardia, at the Palazzo della Regione: the lower parts of the building in fact embrace a square of 4000 square meters under a 32 meter high metal and glass vault. The feeling is that of being outdoors... but under a roof!

The ideal place to skate in the cold days around Christmas!

Villa Scheibler

Via Felice Orsini 21

30 NOVEMBER 2019 - 19 JANUARY 2020

 

Another evocative place to skate this Christmas is the courtyard of Villa Scheibler: a historic sixteenth-century villa, which becomes the incredible backdrop to celebrate while having fun. The track is open from 30 November 2019 to 19 January 2020.

Piazza Angilberto II

3 DECEMBER 2019 - 20 JANUARY 2020

 

A track a little out of the centre but in a renewed and coloured square: Piazza Angilberto II has been completely renovated adding benches, planters, tables, ping pong tables, decorations on the asphalt and, this Christmas, even an ice rink!

Piazza Gramsci
