Endless dinners and lunches with the family, bingo, card games, and so on and so forth.
If spending Christmas with the family is not for you and you feel like escaping, sneaking away for a walk with your closest friends, here are 5 destinations to enjoy for Christmas.

Five villages that we have chosen because they are far from the city, in suggestive places all over the year, and even more when they are immersed in the atmosphere of Christmas in Emilia Romagna.

Christmas in Comacchio (Ferrara)

Sparkling canals and festively decorated boats, all surrounded by the Christmas atmosphere of the floating city: strolling through Comacchio during the Christmas festivities is a truly evocative experience.
Among nativity scenes on the water, torchlight processions, markets, puppet shows and activities for children, the program of events organized during the Christmas holidays is truly rich, also in the Delta Antico Museum.

Christmas in Brisighella

The Christmas festivities immersed in one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, where you can pamper yourself with suggestive walks and local gastronomic specialties. This is what awaits you if you decide to spend Christmas in Brisighella, a delightful medieval village overlooking the Lamone Valley.
And in addition, you are in Romagna, a stone’s throw from the seaside and from the most important and renowned Italian entertainment centers.

Christmas among the Cribs of Romagna

Another idea to spend Christmas is to take a tour among the cribs of Romagna, whether they are in the hilly villages, such as Longiano, or in the seaside villages, such as that of Rimini, Bellaria Igea Marina or Cesenatico, an occasion to also enjoy in the meantime the intimacy of the winter sea.
