    Capital of Europe is a city that turns around in a few days and that during this period will make you experience the magic of the holidays. Lights, sounds and an enchanting atmosphere will welcome you upon your arrival in the city, "Plaisirs d'hiver”Is the program of shows and attractions that will animate the city until January.

    In the wonderful Grand Place, the heart and main attraction of the capital, you will find in the center a large tree and the crib, in natural size, with the hut, the characters and the animals around. To capture the true Christmas spirit, the square should be seen in the evening when, from 17 pm onwards, every half hour, one show of sounds and lights it will hold you with your head up. In fact, the palaces, which during the day present themselves in all their baroque richness, during the evening are dressed in colored lights, to the rhythm of pressing and suggestive music.

    From the square, the path to discover the Christmas attractions, as well as the city, winds northwards. As soon as you leave the square, before reaching the St. Nicholas church, you will meet different chocolate shops, for the joy of sight and palate, a little less than the wallet because they are real “jewelers” of taste.

    An exhibition (for a fee) for children is set up in the Palazzo della Borsa: "Giants of the Earth”With about 30 large reproductions, dinosaurs, mammouths of the ice age and other animated animals that recreate the atmosphere of prehistory.
