Milano never disappoints when we talk about Christmas trees and lights along streets and squares.
The tree in piazza Duomo this year is special: it is an entire tree of lights that replaces the traditional fir. It is even possible to enter inside to live an experience to tell. Don't miss the inauguration show on December 6th. Every night from December 7th to 24th don't miss the evening show to countdown the days until Christmas.
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is also lit up with the traditional tree in the Octagon, backdrop of the most loved Christmas selfies.
Strolling around under the illuminated roof of the Galleria, go to Piazza della Scala, where you can find a light installation inspired by the roof of Teatro alla Scala, which looks down on the piazza.
Nothing is better than a stroll around the streets or a ride on one of the historical Milanese trams in the city centre under the Christmas lights.
From December 1st more than 180 streets are enlivened by lights, both in the city centre and in the outskirts of town. From Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Via Mercanti and Via Dante to via Orefici, from Corso Buenos Aires to Corso Venezia, Corso Garibaldi, Corso Como and Via Torino.
If you want to dive into the streets of the Fashion District (the Quadrilatero della Moda), don't miss the shop windows of the great designers, who every year offer spectacular displays. The Christmas Shopping Experience is also held in this area, an elegant set up of lights created ad hoc for each street, with music and events.
Piazza Tre Torri at City Life is illuminated by a guiding star, and Porta Nuova by "Light the Future" by Urban Up - Unipol.
Real light shows are on at the Central Station and at the Darsena with Aqua Show: you'll be amazed!
