Christmas Village 2018

Christmas Village 2018

From 1 Dec 2018 to 6 Jan 2019

Piazza Carducci

A magic wand will cast its spell over Monza’s city centre from December 1st to January 6th to create an enchanting ‘Christmas Village’ hosted in Piazza Carducci.

30 cosy wooden chalets, tastefully adorned and surrounded by twinkling fir trees, will entice passers-by with artisanal and culinary specialties from Italy and from locations as far away as Lithuania, Spain, Finland and India.

Not be missed of course is Santa Claus grotto at the centre of the village. Santa will be at home to welcome children on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and on December 23rd and 24th.

Naturally there will be lots of fun entertainment for children: creative workshops to make cute Christmas decorations, plus, magic shows, Baby Dance classes, jugglers, Christmas tales and ... the Befana is coming!

Throughout the Christmas period there will be no lack of fun dates with fantastic characters: a Fairy, an Elf and, of course, Father Christmas himself all await you in the village!
