Admire the tree in St. Peter’s Square
You can’t leave Rome without having admired St. Peter’s Square, which at Christmastime becomes even more impressive thanks to the marvelous Christmas tree that soars in the middle of it. It’s a spruce tree of about 28 meters that landed here directly from Andalo, in the Dolomites. The huge and stunning Nativity Scene comes this year from the village of Chopcca in the Andes. It is composed of more than 30 pieces made by five famous artists from Huancavelica.
Have fun at the Luneur
Luneur was renovated and reopened to the public in 2016: it is Rome Luna Park designed for children from 0 to 12 years. During the Christmas season, Luneur is festively decorated and becomes even more exciting. The Garden of Wonders features glowing spheres, enchanted creatures straight from the Ice Kingdom, and a skating rink where penguins and polar bears will help even the youngest children skate. The perfect place for the best Rome family tours!
Plunge in new traditions at Christmas World
During the Christmas season, the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome boasts a vast holiday program for families and children. This year this place will host Christmas World, the experiential exhibition that promotes the value of culture difference and encourages the meeting among folklore traditions. You can have a journey through several Christmas traditions around the world walking along an exhibition path where you can enjoy art installations by the most appreciated Italian artists, iconic monuments and cultural performances. A real open-air museum for your Rome family tours!
