Christmas in Rome21st Dec 2023
Christmas is a wonderful time to visit Rome as the city, the streets are brightly lit and decorated, the churches display their ancient cribs, and the city celebrates. An exhilarating and intimate destination where the glories of its ancient past mingle with museums, art-filled churches and Renaissance piazzas, this is the perfect introduction to the ‘Eternal City’ led by Oliver Gilkes, who will bring to life triumphs, tragedies and political intrigue that characterised the Roman Empire. We stay at the Hotel Albergo Santa Chiara in the very heart of the ancient city, situated directly behind the Pantheon, the perfect base for exploring Rome. It has been privately owned by the Corteggiani family since 1838 and consequently retains a feel of personal warmth and friendliness.
