The magic of Christmas and New Year's in Lucca

The spell of the Christmas period pervades the whole city of Lucca, creating a dream atmosphere throughout the historic center. By booking a stay in our hotel, you can fully experience the magic of Christmas and New Year's Eve.


The open-air show of the historic center


The shops are dressed up with Christmas decorations, Christmas lights illuminate every alley of the city while here and there, from some activities, Christmas trees peep out, carefully decorated in each branch.

During the Christmas period, nothing is left to chance. Everything is taken care of in the smallest detail, which is why Lucca seems to be even more beautiful than ever.

Among a thousand flavors of freshly baked desserts, it is a unique spectacle to stroll through the streets of the city and admire the masterpieces of the historic center completely immersed in the Christmas atmosphere.

To appreciate Lucca even under the stars, on Thursday 23 December the shops in the historic center will remain open until midnight.


New Year's Eve in Lucca is celebrated twice


The New Year in Lucca is celebrated in Piazza San Martino, the main square of the city. Here, in front of the Cathedral, the inhabitants of the city and tourists gather to admire the fireworks display that accompanies the arrival of the new year. From 10pm until late at night, entertainment is ensured by shows, performances and lots of live music.

In Lucca, tradition has it that the New Year is celebrated twice. The first, at the stroke of midnight; the second, after eighteen minutes and a second.

What is the reason for this nice custom? The time, in the city of Lucca, is calculated based on the transit of the Sun on the historic sundial located on the Torre delle Ore, precisely in Via Fillungo. This explains the reason why the inhabitants usually celebrate the new year twice.
