Rome isn't a city like any other, and Christmas in Rome shows that as well.. While other cities show off one special thing, the lights, the tree, or a nativity scene a bit out of the ordinary, in Rome, it is possible to find tens and tens of decorations with different and unusual Christmas trees at every corner of its streets. And Rome is pretty big!!
So here we will take you on a little stroll through the center of Rome, leaving from B&B Gli Artisti, so we can see the most beautiful lights of the city for this Christmas 2013. As soon as you leave the Bed and Breakfast, we suggest that you go to visit the Nativity scene of Netturbini. Go down Via Ottaviano and you will arrive at Piazza Risorgimento, where the Christmas markets are found.
Before you get to St. Peter's square, at Piazza Risorgimento, you can find small wood vendor stands, about 15, where you can purchase Christmas items for gifts or souvenirs to bring back home. Here, you can also find things that are made by hand, which are always well received, because they are made with love and care.
