Here are the amusement parks open for Holidays, where you can have fun from December 4th to January 8th!

Alongside the reproductions of the creatures of the abyss, you can also learn to respect the Planet by diving into the Plastifiniamola area.
And during the holidays, from December 26th to January 8th, you can have even more fun with the Christmas settings.
OLTREMARE – Riccione (RN)
But the excitement doesn’t end there: you can become a trainer or falconer for a day by booking the interactive programs, go in search of alligators and dinosaurs in the Darwin forest, be amazed by the flight of birds of prey with buzzards, vultures, griffins and owls. or meet barn owls in the Crazy Farm Arena and wallabies in the Australia Experience Area.

Monuments, churches, seas, lakes, volcanoes, small trains and inhabited squares, and thousands of miniature trees.
For the Christmas period, everything will be festively decorated, and in the magical Piazza Italia the public will be welcomed with a large Christmas tree, face painting to transform the little guests into their favorite characters and hundreds of lights. The attractions Venice, Esperimenta and Pinocchio are also included in the ticket.
