The Christmas season is full of events both in Pisa and Livorno. To celebrate this period the two cities are decorated to the nines with lots of lights and Christmas trees in the most strategic locations.
For at least a month in the city’s main squares of Pisa you can see three fir trees decorated with balls and colored lights. They are located in Piazza delle Vettovaglie, in Piazza XX Settembre and Piazza Arcivescovado.
The path of the Arno River through the city is illuminated too with small LED lights, as well as some bridges and certain ancient gates.
It is often broadcast Christmas music and in the weekends of December you can see shows and theme concerts.
The calendar of Christmas events in Livorno is just as rich. Every year there are Christmas markets and stalls of various kinds that animate the main streets of the historic center.
For the amusement of all the children, at the Christmas village you can also write the letter and meet Santa Claus in person. Not far from the stands of exhibitors you can also watch various themed shows and do ice skating.
Do not miss the appointment with the street performers in Via della Madonna that is repeated every year on the eve and always received a huge success.
