, at the edge of a lake watching the fireworks and listening to the sound of the boat horns which mark the start of this new year.

Celebrate the New Year in Italy Choosing a place to stay is a fundamental part of making this time of the year as perfect as it should be and Parco San Marco will welcome you and help with all the preparations for a perfect New Year's Eve. With its 111 suites and apartments inside a 30 000 m² subtropical park, with indoor and outdoor pools and a 3000 m² private beach, the hotel is situated on a privileged location on Lake Lugano. From there guests can quickly reach cities in northern Italy, as well as in Switzerland. All the towns around the lake have their own way of celebrating. Some towns light a bonfire in the town centre and locals and visitors alike take to the streets, where the celebrations continue until the wee hours of the morning. And New Year's Day, of course, is all about relaxation and recovery. A New Year's Day brunch will help replenish the energies and start the day well. An afternoon of cake and coffee -- and perhaps a short walk along the lakeside -- makes for the perfect follow-up to the night's celebrations. To end the old year well and welcome in the new one in style, celebrate the New Year in Italy!
