Little lights sparkle, a match for the stars, while steam rises into the night air from brightly coloured cups and there is a scent of toasted almonds. You can feel Christmas in Arco, and taste, hear, smell and see it. And above all, absorb it.
If you want to enjoy the Christmas spirit in a peaceful atmosphere – strolling, savouring, pausing, anticipating, choosing gifts – Arco is the place to visit in the weeks before and after Christmas. The traditional stalls and wooden huts line the squares and alleyways, offering not just wonderful gift ideas for friends, family and – why not! – even yourself, but also all sorts of lovely, typical items to try. The house façades lit up before the high rock walls that soar into the twilight form a colourful backdrop to an equally colourful supporting programme, one that includes street performances, concerts and petting zoos. There are magic shows, nativity scenes and creative workshops that will delight young and old alike, while the sky itself is lit up with a traditional firework display. And there is so much more than mulled wine to enjoy at the Christmas market – as Arco offers plenty of local specialities and Christmas treats.
