There’s North Pole with Santa Claus and his house where all children are welcome, this is a destination not to be missed, and don't forget to have your children bring the letter so they can deliver it to Santa in person. There will be several food stands to try specialties from the countries represented in the event.

The most important and historic market in Piazza Navona, in the city centre, the most beautiful square in Rome has hosted Christmas stalls and the wonderful Christmas carousel for more than two centuries, which gives an even more magical touch to the atmosphere of the square. The market is known as the Befana market, a much loved figure in the Roman tradition as an ancient dispenser of games and sweets, even before the arrival of the figure of Santa Claus.
Such a precious location is always unmissable, but during the Christmas period it becomes magical. The market set up among the statues and monuments of Borromini and Bernini offers games, sweets, figurines and lots of befanas. It's the perfect place to find special Christmas gifts.

All the nativity scenes made with different techniques and materials are unique and come from many parts of the world, and they remind us of the image that each country they belong to associates with the idea of the birth of Baby Jesus.
The selected nativity scene artists are capable of creating small masterpieces that give a unique emotion and fully express the Christmas spirit belonging to their country of origin. All this is made even more special and unique by the place where the event is set up: Bernini's colonnade of Piazza San Pietro.
