Christmas in Rome is a wonderful time, with the beautiful trees adorning the city’s major Piazzas, the Christmas Markets in Piazza Navona, Piazza Mazzini and so many more and the Christmas lights in the central streets of the city and the beautiful flames along the alleys of Trastevere.
Of course Rome is also the Home of the Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica. St. Peter’s Square has a wonderful Christmas tree and a beautiful Nativity scene set up in the middle of the Piazza and of course Christmas mass in St. Peter’s square or St. Peter’s Basilica is truly a once-in-a-alifetime experience.
Christmas of course also coincides with the Jewish festivity of Hannukah, the holiday of lights, and you can see the oldest Jewish community in the world celebrate it by lighting up their candles in front of the Old Synagogue in the Jewish Ghetto and in Piazza Barberini, by Bernini’s amazing Fountain of the Triton.
Roman cuisine and Italian wine will keep you warm during the cold Christmas days and nights and Rome Vacation Photographer will be there to photograph your strolls around the city’s highlights (no pun intended), during this marvellous times when the streets and piazzas truly have a special glow.
Every itinerary in Rome during Christmas has the added bonus of being adorned with the lights and decorations of this magical time.
Also, the Christmas Holidays in Rome extends past its wonderful Street-parties for New Year’s eve and all the way to January 6th, with the beautiful Befana Festivities. Piazza Navona is filled with wonderful stalls of all kinds and it’s a very “Italian” festivity, so you will truly experience a special moment! In Rome you can feel the heart-warming festivities glow for much longer than in other cities…
