A fortunate moment to discover places transformed and made even prettier by the decorations, lights and festive atmosphere of Christmas.
The ideal region where to spend Christmas in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere is Umbria, which welcomes tourists in the cosy and calm scenery of its medieval villages.
A visit to the Franciscan sanctuary of Assisi will give you a deeper insight into the spiritual significance of the most beautiful festival of the year. If you want your Christmas to be perfect, Rome is the city for you. Take a stroll in the Baroque centre to see how the Romans celebrate this festival. And don’t forget to go to the Vatican to participate in the Papal Mass. A new event makes Christmas in Florence even more exciting.
Between the end of December and the beginning of January a Festival of Lights will illuminate and turn the main monuments of the city into colourful paintings.
