Symbol of Christmas in Lugano, once again this year the large, beautifully decorated tree will be the backdrop for photos of the Ticinese as well as tourists, accompanied in the evening by magical light projections on the buildings in the square.


City Centre
05.12 - 24.12

From Via Nassa to Piazza Dante, as tradition dictates, many red roofed stalls will brighten up the days of Christmas. Moreover, in Piazza Manzoni the wooden houses will offer original and handmade objects for shopping.

In compliance with the regulations in force, there will be no bouvettes on the square but it will still be possible to taste the typical Christmas delicacies at the many bars and restaurants in the city centre.

PArco Ciani
01.12 - 06.01.21

This year the Parco Ciani will be the setting for a charming Enchanted Forest. A luminous path through trees and flowerbeds accompanies adults and children on a walk to discover many corners of light. A unique experience just a few steps from the centre to experience the magic of Christmas in contact with nature.

Riva Albertolli, 13.12.2020-06.01.2021

Also this year the lake of Lugano hosts the floating statues of the Amici del Presepe Sommerso. Until January 6th it will be possible to admire the traditional figures of the crib: Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus and the Magi. While during the day they seem to vanish into the water of the lake, in the evening it is possible to catch their beauty thanks to powerful lighthouses that illuminate them.
