1Atrani, Campania

Italy’s most beautiful villages, or its Borghi Più Belli d’Italia, are especially picturesque at Christmas when their small alleys and piazzas are decked with decorations and host seasonal events.

From December until La Befana on January 6th, the borghi come to resemble real-life nativity scenes. Here are some of the prettiest towns to visit this season.It may sound unlikely to visit the Amalfi Coast during the winter holidays but Atrani’s “Stelle Divine” events are sure to stave off the cold weather blues and delight locals and visitors alike.
Each year, the historic fishing town is illuminated in bright colors, creating a magical atmosphere along the coast. A carpet of red lights lines the Duomo while town’s arcades and streets are turned blue, green, pink and purple during the holidays
