After the great success of the first edition of Magical Christmas, the Villa Reale complex (just 7 km from the walls of Lucca) will pamper you with the atmosphere of a “magical Christmas”, enriching the cultural visit with bright (and delicious! ) both inside the palaces and in the enchanted gardens.

Magical Christmas returns to Villa Reale on 8-9-10 and 16-17 December 2023 from 2pm to 9pm

with the scent of mulled wine and burning wood in Nordic braziers: the magical Christmas atmosphere will warm young and old alike to discover one of the most iconic places in Tuscany.

Santa Claus has accepted the invitation and will return to the colorful stables of the Palazzina dell’Orologio in the company of his elves to entertain the children from 2pm to 8pm!

2023 news: there will be more than 30 wooden games (some of more than 2.5 m!), built with recycled wood or carpentry waste, with the aim of giving new life to wood that would have, ingloriously, a very different destination.

They are games of concentration, of stimulation for strategic skills, coordination, skill, cooperation, but above all they are intergenerational games whose simplicity of the rules makes them accessible to everyone!

The visit to the Villa Reale complex normally takes at least 2 hours to visit the 16 hectares of park and the two museums recently restored and open to the public, therefore we recommend that you take 3 hours to immerse yourself in nature and culture, with the MAGICAL CHRISTMAS atmosphere.

When is it best for me to arrive?

The park opens at 10am and closes at 9pm so you can come whenever you like. If you prefer tranquility, come during the day, if you prefer to visit both the park and see the northern area lit up, opt for an afternoon time slot: in this way you visit the park first and then go up to see Santa Claus (he is there from 2pm to 8pm) and in museums when it gets dark, if you’re only interested in the bright atmosphere, come from 4.30pm onwards.
