Roman Holidays

Waiting for the holiday decorations to go up while we were in Rome was such a topic of excitement for my friends and I.  We just couldn’t wait to see how the Eternal City would dress itself up for Christmas.  Of course it didn’t disappoint.

From Piazza Venezia with its massive tree and nativity scene …

To Via del Corso with Italy’s conveniently festive red, white, and green national colors swooping the length of the entire street …

To Via Condotti, with its ritzy stores and their equally ritzy decorations (which somehow prompted lots of goofy behavior) …

  1. As always your photos are BEAUTIFUL!
    Isn’t it funny, it was around Christmas that we began being a bit homesick and now every Christmas I want nothing more than to be there!

  2. Thanks for the comment on my Helicopter View of Neuschwanstein…post. It really is stunning, you should def, see it if you have the chance. The market in Rome looks pretty awesome. Looks like you guys had fun!

    1. It’s very high on my list of things to see one day when I make it back to Europe – although the list seems to be growing by the day! You should head over to the Roman Christmas markets if you get a chance!

  3. Wow so beautiful!! I would love to visit Rome again sometime..I’ve only been there once during the summer before. It looks very magical around Christmas. Great blog btw 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh, yes, you have to!! Of course Rome is always incredible, but I found it to be absolutely at its best in the late fall/Christmas time. Thank you so much for checking the blog out, and I’m glad you enjoyed the it! 🙂
