What better place to celebrate Christmas than in the Eternal City where it all began. Whether you’re keen to embrace the religious side of Christmas or simply want to see the Italian way of life, Christmas in Rome is sure to be an unforgettable experience for all.

Rome churches and outdoor piazzas (public squares) boast beautiful Christmas decorations focused on presepe (Nativity scene). The Nativity scenes are very beautiful and an important part of Christmas not just in Rome, but all of Italy! The most elaborate of course, is the Nativity scene at the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square. It’s one of the stops on our special Christmas-themed 3-hour walking tour of Rome, where you’re guaranteed to see the main highlights like Piazza Navona (to see the Christmas Markets), Pantheon, Trevi Fountain but also the beautiful Christmas tree and Nativity scene at Vatican City. The tour includes a coffee or hot chocolate stop with a stroll along Rome's most famous shopping street, Via dei Condotti - all done up in Christmas lights in honor of the holiday season.

Rome is a vibrant city on New Year's Eve and most of the events are focused around Piazza de Popolo where you’ll find locals and travelers alike waiting for the fireworks.
