Christmas feelings

Christmas feelings

Suggestive light sculptures, gourmet villages, ice parks and shows for young and old alike warm up the festivities in Cervia and Milano Marittima.

The atmosphere of Christmas in Cervia

Irresistible in the summer, fascinating and full of emotions out of season, thanks to the glitter of the Christmas lights and markets, in Cervia and Milano Marittima the face of the seaside summer is transformed into an evocative destination for the winter holiday, when the sea in a storm or a few snowflakes create an atmosphere.

Christmas lights along the Canal - Ph. Barbara Cholewa

Christmas lights in Piazza Garibaldi - Ph. Barbara CholewaThe appeal of the Riviera dressed up for the holidays, accompanied by a calendar of events that gets richer every year, has nothing to envy to the white Christmas in the mountains. Between traditions and new trends, Cervia comes alive with Christmas Emotions for young and old for the entire festive period. The squares and streets of the town centre are transformed into a widespread Christmas village with small houses offering the flavours and colours of traditional crafts and, of course, the skating rink in Piazza Garibaldi. In addition, there are the winter gardens, the big Christmas tree, Father Christmas's house and the Elves, as well as shows and concerts in the spirit of the festivities.
Cervia pays tribute to its salt history with the Salt Nativity exhibited at the Musa and the Water Nativity, a life-size "salt" nativity created on a burchiella. But it is for the most eagerly awaited countdown of the year that the city has the most exciting surprise in store: the toast to the new year is accompanied by evocative fireworks and the unmissable "fire" of the Salt Storehouse.


Lighting decorations in Milano Marittima - Ph. Nicolò UliviA sea of events also warms up the most glam resort on the Romagna Riviera with the Emotions of Light of the MimaOnIce village which, for some years now, has been attracting thousands of people to the fashionable Milano Marittima. With trendy clubs, gourmet huts, artists' trees, events and DJ sets, MiMa Christmas is all about living around the Primo Maggio roundabout, the city's symbol.
Here you can slide on ice in Europe's largest circular ice rink, while the village of gourmet food huts, where you can buy the latest Christmas gifts, winds around the roundabout. Entertainment and games are also available for children, who can leave their wishes in Santa's little house in Viale Gramsci.
At MimaOnIce there is also room for art with the Artistic Christmas Tree Garden, the protagonist of the charity initiatives in collaboration with Mediafriends Onlus and La Fabbrica del Sorriso.
But the real emotions of Christmas in Milano Marittime are those given by the spectacular and monumental luminous sculptures over 2 metres high, which attract luxury, fashion and art, transforming the Viale Matteotti- Viale Gramsci axis, the designer shopping streets, into a single promenade of elegant effect.
