It has been created for the first time in 1981: over 800 lights, about 12.000 meters of cables compose the spectacular tree, an exciting and striking way to live Christmas’ atmosphere.

The world’s biggest Christmas tree is set at the basis of Mount Igino, in the Italian region of Umbria and precisely in the city of Gubbio. From year to year, the big Christmas tree lights up the city of Gubbio from 7th December until the first week of January.
