Hardly any queue at the ticket offices and silent rooms are elements of great attraction for art lovers. In Italy the artistic cities certainly aren’t lacking and you will be spoiled for choice. Moreover, many museums have chosen to stay open the first day of the year so as to allow visitors from all over Italy to visit the exhibition rooms.
- New Year’s Eve clubbing
There are still a considerable number of Italians, especially the very young, who like to celebrate New Year’s Eve in a club. Being surrounded by music and dancing until the first light of dawn is still one of the best ways to spend New Year’s eve, especially when you are in the company of a group of friends.
- New Year’s Eve at home
Despite the saying “Christmas with your family and New Year’s Eve with whoever you want”, many Italians love to greet the new year remaining at home with their loved ones. Many Italian families, in fact, have carried out for years the preparation of a traditional new year’s eve dinner in which the main dish is the inevitable cotechino with lentils.
After having dinner, it is a custom to play cards or other traditional table games. At the stroke of midnight, we exchange greetings while sipping sparkling wine as a good omen.
