The atmosphere that precedes Christmas is the most magical of the year and, walking through the picturesque villages overlooking our Lake Como, adults and children will have the opportunity to fully experience it. Today I am going to tell you about all the events that will take place in this period.


Famous all over the world are those of Trentino, but even the local ones are not far behind. Here, in the characteristic wooden houses, you can find many local culinary products and also lots of handicrafts: from objects for the house, clothing, decorations to creatively decorate your tree. A great opportunity to make small gifts to unwrap on Christmas day. The most beautiful are those of Como, Civenna, Menaggio, Nesso and Brienno. In Como you can find them in Piazza Cavuor, Piazza Perretta and Piazza Grimoldi from 26th November 2023 to 8th January 2024; in Civenna in the Andreola school and in Nesso in the municipal gym in Via Pietro Binda, on 8th December 2023. In Menaggio in the playground in Nobiallo on Sunday 10th December 2023 and, finally, in Brienno the houses will animate the arcades with their lights, their colors and their scents, from 8th to 10th December 2023. Among the stalls you can also find many refreshment points. In addition, always in Brienno, for lovers of history, Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm, thanks to the Alpine will be able to visit the Gallery from Mina del Puncett, a tunnel carved into the rock as a defensive point of the Cadorna Line.

But Christmas means above all illuminations: the most particular will be in Como with the most important monuments illuminated and decorated , through projectors, with Christmas images. But everywhere you will find Christmas trees and illuminated streets.


Lots of fun for them too. In Brienno, hidden among the arcades, right at the bottom, there will be the house of Santa Claus with his shop. Here children can leave their letter for Santa and eat sweets. Parents, however, will have the opportunity to buy local products. Guided tours are scheduled, from 10am to 2pm, from 8th to 10th December. In the heart of the historic center of Como, however, adults and children can entertain themselves on the ice rink and the carousel of horses. Finally, how not to mention the famous City dei Toys, but this deserves a special mention.

The focus of the events will be in Cernobbio, with the famous City of Toys.

A combination of lights, sounds and colors will enliven the village, the lakeside promenade and the gardens of Villa Bernasconi. Christmas markets, an ice rink and many other surprises await you from 7th December 2023 to 7th January 2024.


After a fun but busy day, a healthy rest is well deserved. Enjoy it at our Hotel Gardenia Fiera in Cermenate. Located out of the hustle and bustle of the city, halfway between Milan and Como, near the highway and Lomazzo station, it will be perfect to recharge your batteries in one of our 3 types of rooms and enjoy the delicious cuisine of our fantastic chef Katia, at our restaurant Mama Gina. Why choose us? In addition to the strategic position and our comfortable and enveloping environment, here you will find more competitive prices than the countries on the lake.
