So, Christmas is only one month away. This is the time to make up your mind and get ready for that special christmas in Rome.We’ll brief you about everything what’s there to know about this special season in the eternal city.
Something you can’t miss it’s the christmas market at Navona Square. It’s an institution in Rome, and if you have kids with you they will have a lot of fun: there are candies, puppets, a merry-go-round, and all kinds of whacky things for them to do. But even if you don’t have children with you this is the place to visit if you want to get the feeling of christmas while in Rome.
Another tradition it’s the exhibition of nativity scenes.There are many of them, and many neighborhoods and churches (including the Vatican) have their own Nativity scene, but an interesting option is an exhibition of 100 nativity scenes, taking place at Piazza Del Popolo. We’ll be reporting about it with more detailed information on the next days.
The Auditorium Parco Della Musica, one of the finest concert halls in Rome, will be featuring “Christmas at the Auditorium“, a series of concerts and events related to the joy of Christmas. We highlight the gospel festival, and the concert of Christmas songs, but you can check the entire program here.
And, of course, one of the most interesting possibilities of your Roman Christmas is beaing able to attend the midnight mass the Pope Benedict XVI will be holding on December 24th, or the public blessing he will give to the crowd at Saint Peter’s Square the day after.
When it comes to accomodation we have the best option for you at Yes Hotel and Hotel Des Artistes. Just take a look at our availability, and at our special packages for this season, and get ready to try to resist the tentation of organizing a trip to Rome.
Our hotels are located within walking distance from some of the most beautiful sights of the city, like the Pantheon or the Trevi Fountain, which is a great advantage considering than on Christmas the public transportation system doesn’t work at its full capacity. There are many restaurants nearby and many shops, perfect to get a last minute gift. Besides, our warm and professional staff will go out of their way to help you to have an unforgettable Christmas in the most beautiful city in the world.
