See some of the most famous landmarks in Christendom on this Christmas-themed walking tour of Rome! The walking tour begins in Piazza del Popolo, which traditionally marks the northern "door to Rome". The piazza's church Santa Maria del Popolo was often the first church that visitors would see upon entering Rome's city's gates.
You'll then proceed to the Spanish Steps, with its lively atmosphere and stunning views down into the alleys that wind into the heart of Rome's historic center. Take a walk along Rome's most famous up-scale shopping street, Via dei Condotti - all done up in Christmas lights in honor of the holiday season before encounter one of Rome's most dramatic monuments, the Trevi Fountain.
Your stroll through Rome continues with a stop at Piazza Colonna, which contains the column erected by Marcus Aurelius and is considered by Romans to be the very center of the city. Stop at the Pantheon (exterior visit), with its impressive concrete dome and open oculus, which never fails to impress. Next, enter the colourful Christmas wonderland at Piazza Navona which hosts a local Christmas Market, where you'll hear all about the Italian Christmas Witch "la Befana".
Finally, no Christmas tour of Rome would be complete without a visit to St. Peter's Square at Vatican City where you’ll admire the impressive Nativity Scene and Christmas Tree.
