What You Can Expect

Rome Christmas Time Walking Tour

Rome Christmas Day Walking Tour

Your Rome Christmas walking tour starts at Piazza di Spagna at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, one of the city’s most popular gathering places. With your informative guide, peek down the narrow streets that wind through Rome’s historic center, and walk along Via dei Condotti, lined with high-end shops decorated for the holidays.

Stop by the Trevi Fountain, and then make your way to Piazza Colonna, thought to be the very center of the city with its column erected by Marcus Aurelius. Admire the exterior of the domed Pantheon, and then wander through Piazza Navona, where you can enjoy its Christmas Market and listen to a story about ‘la befana,’ the Italian Christmas witch.

Finally, head to Vatican City to see the Christmas tree and Nativity scene at St Peter’s Square. Your tour ends here, where you are free to continue soaking up Rome’s Christmas atmosphere on your own.

This was the family's favorite tour. Amelia is a gem and so very informative. We saw so many incredible old and ancient landmarks and heard so many stories. And walked so many miles. Each stop was incredibly interesting.
