The Christmas holiday season in Italy’s capital begins on December 8, which is the holiday of Immaculate Conception, or Immacolata, and officially ends on January 6, the Epiphany. This day is called the Befana in Italy.
One of the must-to-do things in Rome this season of the year is to admire the impressive Christmas trees through the city’s roads. The 4 best trees can be found at the Coliseum, in Piazza Venezia, at the top of the Spanish Steps, and of course in St Peter’s Square.  
Also, at Piazza Navona you can visit one of the most famous Christmas markets in the world.
Italian traditional food is delicious at any time of the year, but it is even better around Christmas with some seasonal delicacies also available. In addition, as you walk, you can find many skating rinks to try your skills on the ice. Finally, you can’t miss a visit at the famous shops of the city and make your Christmas shopping a unique experience.
Below you will see some photos that will make you want to visit Rome on Christmas.
