Christmas at the Venaria Reale
On the evening of 22 December, the magnificent Reggia di Venaria, located just a short distance from the centre of Turin, will host the ‘Gran Gala di Natale’, a dazzling Christmas charity gala featuring lights, music and surprises galore. Proceeds from the event will be used to help fund the Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research (www.lavenaria.it/it/eventi/gran-gala-natale).
During the festive season, the gardens of the Reggia will host “Il Sogno del Natale” (see photo), a Christmas theme park designed to keep the whole family entertained. Highlights include Santa’s Grotto, an ice rink, circus performances, markets and workshops, plus numerous other attractions and special events (www.ilsognodelnatale.it).
