What to do in Rome on Christmas days?

Christmas comes once a year, every year.

Always the same days: the 24th and 25th of December.

Boring… not quite.

There’s always something exiting you can do in Rome on Christmas, whether you are a tourist or a local.

Christmas time won’t be a nightmare anymore with our suggestions: cosy places, warm feelings, breathtaking sights and great tours! 🙂

let’s start from the very beginning, the 24th of December in the morning.

24th of December: Late morning at the Galleria Nazionale

Have a Cappuccino and a cookie at the welcome area of the Galleria Nazionale and then get lost, happily lost, losing the sense of time without missing any of the mesmerizing masterpieces of its collection.

24th of December: Christmas Market in Navona Square

We can’t imagine a Christmas time without a carousel. We simply can’t.

And what if this magic entertainment is set in one of the most beautiful squares of the World? It would be a terrific mix!

Late Christmas afternoon, bright Christmas lights: that’s what you get, while you are strolling around enjoying our Highlights Of Rome tour perhaps 😉

24th of December: Dinner at one of our Top Ten restaurants in Rome on Christmas

We posted our Top Ten list of Restaurants open on Christmas in Rome, and we meant it!

But something has changed since last Christmas, and we’ve just updated it 😉

But nothing has changed since last Christmas, so book in advance!

25th of December: morning walk through Villa Borghese

Hoping you did enjoy our 24th Top Ten Restaurants suggestions, then you may need some walk to face what’s left of the holiday: how about strolling through Villa Borghese, enjoy the breathtaking view of Rome from the Pincian terrace.

25th of December: late afternoon, Gospel time!

It’s Christmas and whether you are a religious person or not, you can’t avoid the vibes of your soul. Follow the sound and probably it will lead you to the Auditorium Parco Della Musica for amazing the Gospel Festival.

25th of December: watch a -english spoken- movie at the Cinema

Among all the things we -used to- do best, making movies is one of those. So good that we dubbed all the international movies. So, frankly, there’s only very few theaters where you can enjoy the watch of movies in original language.

Even if few, the good thing is that they do care about films and chose the best ones. Off the list:

Nuovo Olimpia

Barberini (only selected shows)

Intrastevere (only selected shows)

The Space Moderno (only selected shows)

Lux (only selected shows)
