Spoleto
08 December 2016-14 January 2017 

Beyond a month of events among markets, market exhibitions, cribs and concerts will invade Spoleto for Christmas: from 8th December 2016 to 14th January 2017 the holidays' magic will envelope the historical center with "Spoleto, the town in a crib". 


The unique lights' atmosphere will make the city even more beautiful: performances and tastings for adults, whereas the kids could have fun with Santa Claus and other initiatives for them.
