Christmas in Ravenna2021

CHRISTMAS IN RAVENNA is lightened up with colours thanks to a rich schedule of events dedicated to the magic festive season.

Projections of Ravenna in Luce on the Basilica of San Francesco, music and events in the squares.

In the streets of the city center, lightened up by Dantesque lights, you will also find the traditional Christmas markets, while the main square, Piazza del Popolo, will turn into a real Christmas village around the fascinating tree offered by Andalo, in the Trentino-Alto Adige region.

In the nearby Piazza Kennedy there is a large ice rink that will welcome children of all ages, while Piazza San Francesco will be the location of the traditional Christmas Village hosted by the ADVS (association of blood donors) volunteers, ensuring fun activities for the whole holiday season.

The churches around the city are embellished with nativity scenes and the streets shine with a ceiling of golden stars. You will have the possibility to stroll around the city, admire the Unesco World Heritage Monuments, be enchanted by the lights of the fascinating open-air video-projections or simply walk among the decorated shop windows.

Various concerts, shows and art exhibitions will take place during the whole festive season, livening up every corner of the historical centre. For a more interesting stay in the city, you will also have the possibility to take part in one of the many guided tours.

A crescendo of entertainment and enjoyable events that will lead us to NEW YEAR’S DAY, when with the music of Christmas Soul and the fascinating projections of Ravenna in Luce we will be ready to welcome the new year with a smile and a strong feeling of hope. 

From Friday 9th to Saturday 24th December, all parking areas are free of charge from 4.30 pm, with exception of the one in Piazza Baracca (free from 6.30 pm). Local public transport free on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th December.
