Saint Nicholas train

Saint Nicholas has chosen to visit us at Monte Generoso!

Climb aboard with him on our cogwheel train, he will welcome you with lots of tasty gifts

Once you reach the top, there will be the Tonino Circus waiting for you with many interesting and fun Christmas-themed activities to entertain the little ones. Also, don't miss the chance to take a souvenir photo with St. Nicholas up on the summit! A special day to usher in the start of the magical Christmas atmosphere.
