Spend Christmas in Rome is a truly magical experience! The atmosphere during December is fantastic: lighted streets, large Christmas trees in the most beautiful squares, famous Christmas markets and the beautiful and charming St Peter's Square, where, on Christmas night and on the morning of 25 December, you can attend the Mass of the Pope, during which the pontiff read the Christmas message to the faithful.
During Christmas in Rome we suggest you stroll among the shops of Via del Corso, Via dei Condotti and other famous streets for your Christmas shopping. In fact the streets and the squares of the city are full of lights and Christmas decorations that will make you breathe a unique atmosphere. One of the most characteristic sights of Rome is undoubtedly the Christmas markets such as the market of Navona Square where you will find many stalls selling clothes, children's games, live performances and stalls where you can buy so many tipical cakes.
Another event not to be missed for those who spend Christmas in Rome is the "101 Nativity Scenes", an international exhibition where you can admire 176 nativity scenes, including 67 from other European Countries, Asia, Latin America, North America and Africa. If you are passionate about music and songs of Christmas we suggest that you do not miss the spectacle of Rome Gospel Festival with exciting performances of American choirs and spiritual group. Even the Auditorium Parco della Musica in organizing a series of Christmas events for children and adults, shows fun to spend the holidays between theater and music.
Merry Christmas from Rome!
