Christmas vibes and Swarovski tree in the heart of Milan


Stunning 12 meters high Christmas tree decorated with thousands of lights and fineries, and crowned with a precious silver star-shaped tip magically appeared about a week ago in the heart Milan.

Babbo Natale, the Italian brother of Santa Clause, put this sparkling marvel right in center of the renewed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in front of Swarovski boutique. The Austrian producer of luxury crystals helped, in fact, the white bearded fellow to decorate the Milan’s fir of this year. 

Beautiful Swarovski tree brought to the city a delightful Christmans mood and tones of positive vibes, adding to the list of Milanese sights one more must-visit wonder.

Unfortunately, as the majority of wonderworks even this Christmas tree has it expiration date. It will stay on show only until the 6th of January, the day when Befana, another Italian legendary character associated with winter festivities, will deliver on Epiphany Eve small gifts to kids while guilefully carrying off winter holidays and, with it, fabulous Swarovski tree.
