Le Luce Di Natale I



Immediately after lunch on Thursday, we set off for Salerno to see
the Christmas lights - yes, I know they wouldn't be on
when we arrived at about 3pm, but when we
last went on New Year's Eve's Eve 2011,
it took us over 2 hours to get there & another 
45 minutes to find somewhere to park.
So we thought we'd go while there was less traffic
about, grab a coffee once we'd parked up & then
wander round the Centro Storico to take some
'before' pics until dusk settled.
This building is derelict behind the fa├žade
The tree is pretty spectacular 24/7
Corso Vittorio Emanuele

























The theme of the lights is Il Giardino Incantato, & when they are 
switched on, it truly is enchanting.....
A magical tree
Tunnel of stars
Stunning piece of art


Il Giardino Inverno

Flowers
Stars & planets
The tree is just stunning
It's easy to see why thousands of visitors flock here 
every Christmas & New Year

  1. How pretty. Sad to say, much better than Milan!

    1. Nice to know the 'poor south' can outdo the affluent north occasionally!
