Christmas in Salerno

WHEN: from early December to 08 January 2023*

Christmas is ready to embrace Salerno again in an edition… energy saving! The current crisis, in fact, has prompted the organizers to review the program to avoid energy waste during this period of serious crisis.

Despite this, we expect to admire spectacular illuminations, in a riot of lights and colors. Shows and shows. Crib exhibits. In addition to the new installations, in fact, there will also be those of last year. With the suggestive promenade and the historic center of Salerno, as a frame.

The children and the family will be, as usual, the glue of this party. An event dedicated to security, with limited gates and accesses to avoid gatherings.

Not far from the splendid Naples, artist lights is a truly evident not to be missed, for the whole family. An event able to enhance an entire city. Over 100 stands set up at various points of the city, to buy decorations, toys, food products and all sorts of gifts.
