  1. Nice picture. My family love spending Christmas in Rome, too. The gigantic Christmas tree and the life size nativity display in St. Peter’s are just among the exciting things that we anticipate to see in Rome during Christmas. Shopping and strolling around the Christmas market in Piazza Navona is equally fun and exciting as well, especially with your kids with you. Thanks for this. Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.
