Viewed: 246  

If you're spending Christmas in Rome for the first time and wondering about things to do, here's our top ten activities which combine the magic of Rome with real Christmas traditions in Italy. A holidays to Rome during Christmas is actually quite special. Summer heat and crowds have long gone, and airfares to this tourist destination are much cheaper than at other times of year. Although the weather is cold, it rarely reaches freezing, and snow and ice are nearly unheard of here.

Piazza Navona, one of Rome's most popular squares becomes a center stage during the holiday season. A Christmas market is set up here which includes all sorts of games, candy and toys for children as well as holiday crafts, artists and food for the adults. Children here get their stockings for the "Befana" also known as the good little witch which brings candy to the kids on the day of the epiphany. Even Santa makes his special appearance here

Christmas is very much celebrated in Rome but it is not the same holiday you might know or remember. In Rome family is what Christmas is all about and not friends, people you know or those you work with. This is a time for the Traditional Fish and Tortellini to spread around and ate followed with a glass of bubbly spumante.
