The 5 events to attend for an unforgettable Christmas and New Year in Cagliari
Visiting Cagliari is a great experience in every season but, during Christmas and New Year’s Eve, there are many more reasons to fall in love with the city. The sparkling lights, the House of Santa Claus, concerts, decorations, Christmas entertainment along the streets, the typical music of the season and the evocative markets that animate Piazza Yenne and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II with over 40 wooden huts where you can find delicious handicrafts, food and wine and unique gift ideas. All of these create a magical atmosphere that delights children and adults alike.
The capital offers countless events between December and early January: let’s discover the 5 that cannot be missed.
Skating rink at the Bastione
Christmas lights up at the maxi skating rink on the panoramic terrace of Bastione di Saint Remy, in the historic Castello district. The bastion, one of the most important monumental complexes in the city, will host the ice skating facility for adults and children until February. This is a must-destination for the Christmas period and is open until late in the evening. Fun is guaranteed!
Meet Santa in the Courtyard
Palazzo Doglio, the luxury resort in the centre of Cagliari, welcomes the most beautiful time of the year with a full calendar of events for all tastes. After the Christmas Lab on December 4th, which tested the creativity of children and adults with art and workshops, on December 8th, the day of the Festival of the Immaculate Conception, everybody will have a chance to meet Father Christmas. In Corte Doglio, from 4 pm to 7 pm, Santa Claus himself along with the BdiBimbi Superanimators will delight all in attendance with wonderful memories. In addition, at 6 pm, the traditional lighting of the Tree will occur, accompanied by the evocative Christmas carols of the choir of Studium Canticum.
On December 11th, from 10 am to 1 pm, the “Natale dei Bambini” event will be held. This great party is organised in collaboration with BdiBimbi in the courtyard of Palazzo Doglio and is bookable at the Box Office. For the amazement of the little ones, a parade of Disney Christmas mascots will be staged as well as a rich program of musical entertainment by the team of Superanimators.
Christmas Ugly Sweater Party in the courtyard
December 18th, from 12 pm to 7 pm, will be the day to wear your funniest Christmas sweater and enjoy tasty street food and good music in Palazzo Doglio’s courtyard. This is a charity initiative in support of the Red Cross. The event, organised with the help of BdiBimbi, will be the perfect place for children and adults to enjoy some cheerful hours together surrounded by the Christmas spirit.
If the wait for Christmas in Cagliari promises to be electrifying, New Year’s Eve and the countdown to the new year will be no less exciting. Blanco will be the hero of the New Year’s toast that will see the rapper from Lombardy, winner of the last Festival of Sanremo (in a duet with Mahmood) in a concert that twenty thousand people are expected to attend. The stage will be located between Via Roma and Largo Carlo Felice.
