Christmas in Como

Como's Christmas festival consists of dozens of activities, beautiful Christmas lights, and an ice rink and Christmas market in Piazza Cavour. Concerts take place around town, there's a fireworks display on New Year's Eve and the festival ends with the dramatic arrival of La Befana (Italy's present-bearing folkloric witch) swooping down into Piazza Duomo on Epiphany (January 6).
