Natale a Piazza Navona
La tradizione fa di Piazza Navona a Roma l'appuntamento più atteso dai bambini che possono immergersi nell'atmosfera magica di giochi, luci e colori... e quando si diventa grandi si torna in questa piazza incantata per ritrovare quello spirito natalizio che ci accompagnava quando aspettavamo Babbo Natale e la Befana con emozione e felicità...
Piazza Navona becomes a huge Christmas market in December with stands selling nativity figures, Christmas treats, and toys. For the kids there's a merry-go-round and Babbo Natale, Father Christmas, shows up for photos, too.
To top it all, on 6 January the Befana herself comes along to hand out presents!
There are various events in and around the square throughout the Christmas period.
You can visit Santa Claus and parents can wander around in the happy and expectant holiday atmosphere of the market, taking in the sights and smells, munching biscotti, torrone and other Christmas delicacies and generally taking a break from hectic Christmas preparations.
Visiting the market also provides you with the opportunity to see some of Rome's famous and spectacular fountains, including the Fountain of the Moor and the Fountain of Neptune, which stands at the northern end of the square.
