Don’t miss the top 3 Milan Christmas Trees this year!

 

According to a long tradition, Christmas is not Christmas without a shiny tree with its sparkling lights and decorations. Milan, as usual, celebrates the local traditions with a vast array of Christmas trees. Each one is different, with its distinctive features and you can find in some of the most relevant locations in town.

So, here are the best 3 trees turning Christmas 2017 into an unforgettable moment.

 

Tradition – Christmas Tree in Piazza Duomo.

At first, this year the tree adorning the square is the biggest and tallest ever! The cable tv company SKY is the sponsor and the tree features hundreds of decorations and lights. On December 6th the great Christmas tree was switched on and, no doubt, this year it’s pretty impressive. 30 meters high, 100 thousand warm white lights and over 700 glittering white balls to amp up the brightness! And when the festive season is finally over, they will recycle the wood from the tree to create design objects.

Luxury – Christmas Tree in Galleria Vittorio Eamanuele II

Among the other decorative trees located around the city, the glittering Swarovski tree in the center of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a one-of-a-kind sight! The square under the dome, the ‘Ottagono’, is home to a precious 12 meter tall Christmas tree featuring 1,000 crystals and shiny decorations from a well known jeweller brand that is the main sponsor. As a result, the magnificent symbol of Christmas is visible from the Duomo square and from the arch of honour. This year a special inauguration with the most famous milanese fashion blogger, Chiara Ferragni. What else could better fit the Italian fashion capital?

High Tech – Christmas Tree in Piazza Gae Aulenti

Finally, the most technological and innovative tree is in the heart of the futuristic district of Porta Nuova, in Piazza Gae Aulenti. Featuring Christmas greetings in different languages surrounded and enhanced by colourful fancies, this Christmas tree is a great example of balance between tradition and innovation!
