Following up on our previous post, below are some ongoing events during this holiday season:
Christmas Markets (24 Nov. 2014 – 6 Jan. 2015)
Piazza Navona is already of great historical and architectural renown, and its massive annual Christmas market adds a hefty dose of magic to this busy attraction. On an average day, thousands of people make their way easily through the open stadium-shaped piazza. During its Christmas market, however, the piazza is transformed into a crowded marketplace, filled with stalls selling all sorts of decorations (such as the Epiphany’s Befana dolls, shown above), foods (make sure to try a hot ciambella, shown below), jewelry, books, and a host of other things.
