Salerno is a city in Italy, located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s a beautiful place at the best of times, but this Solar System light l display is really something else.

9. Disneyland Paris

Disneyland is a pretty flashy place anyway, but they really go all out at Christmas. Disney and Christmas. Can you think of a more heart-warming combo than that?

This house in Canberra, Australia actually set a world record for Christmas Lights – the family used over half a million bulbs.

7. Gyor

This city in Hungary has a very classy approach indeed when it comes to Christmas lights.

6. Berlin

This display at a market in Berlin has a real Autumnal feel going for it. Cosy.

5. Bellevue Botanical Garden

If you ever wondered what a pond would look like all done up like a Christmas Tree… here you go.

4. Beijing

Check out this awesome tunnel of festive love in Beijing. That really is an awful lot of tinsel.

3. Kyiv

The capital of Ukraine has managed to achieve a wonderful looking Winter Wonderland vibe with this lovely display.
