Rome during Christmas?

by shandaescoto

We will be in Italy from Dec 14th through January 6th and our itinerary looks like we'll be in Rome during Christams (or possibly a town near Rome) I am a little nervous about my first Christmas away from home (San Diego) and want to do a bit of research to make sure it is a fulfilling experience. It is just the two of us, so something pretty, romantic, memorable, etc would be wonderful. Any suggestions on a great place to stay, or dine on Christmas eve or Christmas day, or Christmas related activities would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Rome during Christmas?

by abarbieri

Hello Shanda,
There are many good tips available on VT Rome forum pages and you can also check some of mine. I created several listings with what I thing is the best in each category.
For a special dining experince I would try:
www.hdo.it
www.casinavaladier.it

Christmas related activities:
-Christmas Market at Navona Square
-Nativity scenes (Presepi in Italian)around town and in many churches. The life-size one in St.Peter's square is amazing.
-Pope reading his message at noon on Christmas Day.

Re: Rome during Christmas?

by shandaescoto

Thank you, I will check out both of those links. I think a big concern is if restaurants will be open. I can't think of any that are open here in San Diego, and I sure would be disappointed to have a Christmas feast of day old biscotti and power bars.

Travel Tips for Rome

Amazing Art Everywhere you Look

by buzzz

When you come out of the Pinacoteca follow the signs for the Sistine Chaplel. On your way there you will pass through the Raphael Rooms, the Borgia Apartments and miles of corridors of amazing art. No photos are allowed inside the Sistine Chapel itself.

Ostia Antica

by lina112

The ancient Roman city of Ostia was in antiquity situated at the mouth of the river Tiber, some 30 kilometres to the west of Rome. The shoreline moved seawards, due to silting, from the Middle Ages until the 19th century. Therefore Ostia is today still lying next to the Tiber, but at a distance of some three kilometers from the beach. Ostia is Latin for "mouth", the mouth of the Tiber. The river was used as harbour, but in the Imperial period two harbour basins were added to the north, near Leonardo da Vinci airport. The harbour district was called Portus, Latin for "harbour".

Is a great day for a day trip.

Irish bars

by littlebush

Irish bars are all over the world and Rome is not exception, in fact theres loads of them here. The Shamrock is a good irish bar, thats where i got hammered, cant tell you where it is though!
Also Druids Den, another irish bar, is busy in the day for a beer, they also have a large screen if you want to catch up on any footy!

Trastevere

by travellova

Make sure to eat dinner in the Trastevere region over the river. The restaurants are awesome. Great food, service, and prices. Better than some of the more touristy areas like near Trevi Fountain & The Colleseum. Also, this district has the best gelato, HANDS DOWN!!! Portions are huge. I don't eat meat but my fiance` does. The restaurant we ate at (sorry, can't remember the name) had a meat counter right in the middle of the restaurant. The chef would come out, cut off a chunk of meat, and then cook it right there in a brick oven. I thought this was pretty unique.

The Most Beautiful Church in Europe

by Susumarie

I definitely think you cannot make a trip to Rome without a stop at St. Peter's. This has to be the most beautiful church we saw in our trip, all the gorgeous carvings, magnificient statues, the side chapels themselves look like beautiful churches on their own.

The Pieta is absolutely breathtaking; I don't understand how human hands can create such artwork, but it would be a sin to be in Rome and not see it.

I was so moved to see so many people still kneeling and crying around John Paul II's tomb; that is how much effect he had. But also to be next to what is supposed to be the burial spot of our first Pope is mind boggling.

Do not be intimidated if there is a long line to enter. You do have to go through security (but it is free to enter). There was a line that reached to the back of the square when we arrived, but it didn't take long at all to get in. Just watch out for the guards -- they are a little scary, with no humor to them whatsoever...
