What to expect

Ask any local about the best way to spend the Christmas day in Rome and they’re likely to recommend “il dolce far niente”, the sweetness of doing nothing. The best way to experience Rome on this special day is to spend a day wandering its streets decorated with Christmas lights, enjoying hidden gems and lively piazzas in the historical core of the city – sites like the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and St Peter's Square.

Our three and half hour walking tour does just that, visiting all the most important sights of central Rome and a few of its unsung heroes, with an expert, English-speaking guide to ensure that you get the most from your afternoon of adventure. Let the Eternal City enchant you, as you stroll through its picturesque cobblestone alleyways and discover some of the world’s most famous sites, all in a single afternoon!

  • Our tour starts at the Spanish Steps, one of the most atmospheric spots in Rome. From there we trace a path past shopping mecca Via Condotti, through the cobbled streets of the city to the colossal Trevi Fountain.
  • We then pass through the Pantheon with its famous oculus. Perhaps the most beautiful square in all of Rome, Piazza Navona is home to spectacular Renaissance buildings and Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s beautiful Fountain of Four Rivers. During Christmas time this square is place of one of the most famous Christmas Markets in Italy, and you will have the chance to see it on this special day.
  • Before going to the Vatican City in St Peter’s Square, you will have a few minute break to recharge your batteries, in one of the most typical bars of the city center, enjoying a hot chocolate or an Italian cappuccino.
  • The tour concludes in St Peter’s Square where you will admire the Nativity Scene and Christmas Tree.

Traveling in groups of 25 people or less, your stroll through the streets and piazzas of Rome will be hassle-free and unhurried, and your guide easy to hear and interact with.
