Both the upper and lower city are decorated with angels, stars, and garlands but as you can see from the third photograph, Città Bassa (the lower city) can be quite quiet during the evenings which is actually a nice refuge from the hustle and bustle of Milan.
We were in Milan over the weekend to check out the traditional market "Oh Bej Oh Bej" set up all around the perimeter of Castello Sforzesco. It was so busy that it was difficult to move (and even more difficult to drink my vin brulé, *collective gasp*), Via Dante and Piazza Duomo were overflowing with people. Milan is very nicely decorated for Christmas, evidently some of the city's sponsors for decorations include many luxury brands such as Swarovski.
