Your Christmas present: is Bergamo
Find everything you need to enjoy the most beautiful holiday of the year. Ready to celebrate?

Ah yes, it’s back to that time of year when everything is tinged with gold and goodness!

Glittering lights that illuminate the streets, adorned with all colours and shapes, patisserie windows bursting with pandoro and panettone, shop windows and markets full of gifts, the huge bright tree in the city centre... And then there’s the magic of waiting, the time separating Santa Claus's arrival with his flying reindeer sleigh.

Bergamo is ready to live Christmas together with you.

Christmas is lit up by the Streets of Light: special events, concerts, street food and contests await you throughout the city from November 15th to January 22nd.
There are two shimmering markets: one in Piazzale degli Alpini square near the station and the other in Piazza Dante, in the city centre. And, from December 10th to 12th, they triple in size with the Santa Lucia markets.
Amid the magic of the Christmas Mountains, the Castione della Presolana markets are back. 40 wooden houses, the elves' workshop and the Presolana train: a fairytale you can live.
Do you know Santa Claus has a home in Bergamo too? It’s special, in fact it moves every year! This time it's in Lovere, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. In the Palazzo dell'Accademia Tadini, Santa Claus and the elves await you!
Do you need an idea for an original gift? Give a museum: you can buy a pre-sale ticket for the great Raffaello exhibition that will open in late January.
Want to walk among the shepherds and overtake the three kings? In Villongo you can: for 22 years, 250 staff are on stage to create a living nativity scene. And you will find yourself in Bethlehem where Jesus was born.
Did you know that the nativity scene is not just an Italian tradition? By visiting the Museum of Dalmine, you will discover that there are nativity scenes in every corner of the earth, made from the most diverse materials. A Christmas trip around the world.
