A fun New Year’s Eve
As per tradition now popular in all cities, Como is preparing to celebrate the arrival of the new year in the streets of the center, from the lakeside to Piazza Cavour, including songs, dances and toasts.
The New Year’s Eve party in Como will be a suitable time especially for families who want to spend the transition to the new year in a peaceful and peaceful way, enjoying the beautiful scenery offered by the lake and the illuminated city.
Given the success of last year, from 21.00 to 23.30 will be offered live music with a local band and the opportunity to dance outdoors.
Two hours of live music for an atmosphere of celebration and energy.
From 23.30 to 3.00 two DJs will animate the stage to wait and welcome the new year between dancing and fun.
Midnight will be celebrated with a pyromusical show: fireworks will be exploded from a floating platform and accompanied by music spread, in the extraordinary natural stage offered by the first basin.
The location has been chosen so that the fireworks display can be admired from many areas located between Villa Olmo and Villa Geno, including the surrounding hills.
After 2:00 am, the party moves to Piazza Volta and continues until the wee hours.
For the occasion there will be several trucks with street food.

A romantic New Year’s Eve
New Year’s cruise: Monday, December 31, 2018… travelling towards 2019!
Como is the perfect location for those who want to spend a romantic New Year’s Eve.
The landscape offered by the lake and the narrow streets of the old town, enlivened by the artistic lighting of the facades, give the city a magical atmosphere allowing visitors to immerse themselves in a truly evocative, fairytale and romantic.
Along the lake there is a wide range of restaurants and bars where you can spend the last day of the year enjoying the typical dishes of the local area and enjoying a breathtaking view.
A proposal for a truly romantic New Year’s Eve is undoubtedly the Cruise with dinner and music on board, departing from Como – navigation to the center of the lake, without a stopover.
The boarding, for the evening of December 31, is scheduled at 20:00; the departure, at 20:30. The first return is scheduled at 2:00, the second, however, corresponds to the end of the cruise, at 3.00.
This is an original proposal to celebrate the New Year’s Eve on Lake Como with dinner and music on board, letting yourself be pampered by the delights of the chef and dancing until late at night. Reservation required for further information Cruise on Lake Como – New Year’s Eve 2019.
