I like the winter lights. I look forward to it every year.
We entered at around 4:00 in the evening. It gets darker and darker, and the scenery is fantastic. Even if you don’t go on the rides, you can see street performances for free and buy wine at the store. You can have fun.
I wanted to go on the rides, but there was a long line for all of them. I could have spent a leisurely time with just an admission ticket.
