The magic of Christmas in Viterbo

di Riley Bowen*

Viterbo natalizia 3
“A splendid series of lights and decorations has been set up in all the streets and squares of Viterbo to celebrate the Christmas holidays. In the medieval district of San Pellegrino the Viterbo Christmas Village has been set up.
It was a great pleasure to admire the beauty of the town as it has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland. With the soft glow of the Christmas lights, you can really start to feel excited for the holiday. Many shops and activities have decorated their storefronts and this helps to create the joyful and beaming atmosphere inside Viterbo this time of year.
All this gives me a feeling of wonder.
The Christmas markets have almost been completed and many wooden houses have been placed in Via Marconi. Here you will be able to find all kinds of delicacies, food and drinks, items that can be perfect gifts for this Christmas.
My Christmas will be in America at my home, but living now in such a festive community makes it less easy for me to leave.
I still have a few weeks to live this experience in Viterbo and keep walking in the Christmas Village  the Christmas Village, I have just visited the ice rink in Piazza dei Caduti and the beautiful children’s carousel.  In Viterbo, Christmas is not to be missed, with many delicious products.

The Christmas Village is open until January 6th and I invite everyone to visit it to discover the warmth and the welcome the city offers to visitors. Merry Christmas!”
