A unique Christmas in Lake Como!

What is the best season to visit Lake Como? All four of them!In Winter the city of Como and the lake embrace a very joyful Christmas mood.
Visitors from all over Europe come to admire this festive extravaganza of lights, street markets, pop-up ice-rinks and seasonal events, all from late November until the first week in January!
The city of Como lights up with giant, colorful Xmassy video projections on historic buildings and churches facades and a stupendous Christmas tree.
All around the city of Como, the local Festival “Città dei Balocchi” fills the city with little wonders!
There is the beautiful, historical carousel for the little ones and the pop-up ice rink in Piazza Cavour for everyone to skate under the stars! (This year there will also be an ice rink in the lakeside town of Menaggio).
Stalls full of delicious, colorful candies, stylish woollen scarves, handmade Christmas decorations, vin brûlé (mulled wine) and many more goodies can be found in the lovely Christmas markets around the Lake Como area.
