Spending Christmas in Rome, a unique experience to live once in your life !

Christmas in Rome Navona SquareDuring Christmas there is a special feel in the air in the city of Rome: the buildings and the monuments seem to come to life with lights everywhere, the streets change and become fun and full of happiness. Everywhere you can see lights and decorations.

In Piazza Navona there is one of the most famous Christmas markets.

In fact, the whole square is transformed into Christmas central, with games and toys for children, appearances by Santa and the famous “Befana” . There are also stalls crammed with toys, crafts and a host of seasonal goods. But the historic speciality in piazza Navona is hand-crafted figures used to compose nativity scenes.

Vatican Christmas TreeMeanwhile, the Vatican is turned into a magical Christmas haven. Since 1982, a Christmas tree of about 30 meters or more is put in the centre of St. Peter’s Square. Beside the tree, a nativity scene is placed, drawing pilgrims from all over to have a look.
The pope himself gives midnight mass on Christmas Eve. If you are lucky enough to get tickets for this mass, it is a really special event.

Spending Christmas in Rome also means walking through the streets of the festively decorated centre: the historic alleys and shopping streets are illuminated by Christmas lights and the big squares in the center are filled with tourists and Romans who stroll or relax in search of gifts. Via del Corso, Via del Tritone, Piazza di Spagna, and Via Nazionale, are just some of the places where you can find shops and enjoy yourself.
