Milan, the fashion and financial capitAngela Mirante preparing for New Year's Eve in Italyal of Italy, knows how to throw a good New Year's Eve celebration, despite the fact that it is usually cold.

If you are looking for warmth, head to Naples or Palermo.  Otherwise, Milan offers a nice nightlife with many excellent bars and restaurants. 

You can dance and enjoy live music, bands, fireworks, etc. at Piazza Castello and the Piazza del Duomo.  The gorgeous Milan Cathedral will be in the background for this celebration, which lasts all night.

Another place to celebrate is Castello Sforzesco, which also has fireworks. This is a castle in Milan, and it used to be the residence and seat of the Duchy of Milan

Don't forget the Italian tradition for New Year's Eve is to wear red undergarments (see picture) , as it will bring good luck.  And of course, on New Year's Day, it is customary to have lentil soup with sausage, as it is supposed to bring good fortune!
