Christmas 2019 in Milano is Super: it's new, brilliant, dedicated to everyone, classic, pop, romantic and designed for the enjoyment of the whole family.

The atmosphere on the streets is different from that of any other time of the year. Trees and sparkling lights, skating rinks and markets, Christmas villages, the scents of panettone and Christmas sweets carry those who let themselves be enveloped by their warmth in a whirlwind of events and fun: express your Christmas wish and discover the events with us to experience the Super Christmas in Milano!


Since childhood, everyone loves the magic of Christmas: the gifts under the tree, the warmth of the family, the bright lights that light up the cold evenings spent with friends.


The tree in piazza Duomo is an entire tree of lights that replaces the traditional fir. It is possible to enter inside to live an experience to tell. 

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II will also be lit up with the traditional tree in the Octagon. Inauguration on December 1st.


Strolling around under the Christmas lights, such as in Piazza della Scala, don’t miss a tour of the Christmas markets,especially the Christmas market around the cathedral from December 1st, full of ideas for gifts for all tastes and desires.


Among the numerous initiatives of associations and organizations, we recall the banco di Garabombo dedicated to fair trade and the Italian social economy, open from 2 November to the Epiphany in the parking area of via Mario Pagano, and the Spazio Natale di Emergency, in via Santa Croce, where you can help volunteers in war zones with your purchases.


Also, this year returns the masterpiece exhibited for free at Palazzo Marino: the Annunciation by Filippino Lippi, from San Gimignano, from November 29th to January 12th. Don't miss also in Palazzo Marino the Nativity scene coming from Naples, also for free.


There will also be the annual Christmas concert in the Duomo on December 20th, a free event open to all.


Between some shopping and a slice of panettone discover the beauty of Milano: the 10 unmissable churches or the exhibitions scheduled for the Christmas period, enjoy in the events organized for the 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci or organize a lunch to taste the traditional Milanese dishes (as you know, winter is the best time to taste ossobuco on a plate of yellow risotto or cassoeula!).
