Trip Info

The tour starts at Santa Maria Maggiore Church, where you will visit the oldest known nativity scene. The first example of figurines for nativity scenes started in the late 13th century when Arnolfo di Cambio was commissioned to carve marble nativity figures for the first Rome Jubilee held in 1300. The tour will continue with the Nativity Museum. Over 3,000 nativity figures and mangers — from every corner Italy and the world – are on display at Rome’s Nativity Museum. Then the tour moves to Piazza Venezia and Santa Maria in Aracoeli Church. The church houses a statue of the Baby Jesus carved in the 15th century by a Franciscan friar in Jerusalem, from an olive tree that is said to have grown in the Garden of Gethsemane. It is said that the friar ran out of paint when he was making it, and so angels came and finished it while he slept. After passing through some wonderful Roman squares and stopping at the Pantheon, the tour ends in Piazza Navona with a visit to the Christmas Market to see “La Befana,” the legendary Good Witch of Christmas, who gives gifts to children. On the night before January 6, for the Epiphany, the Befana flies over the rooftops of Rome on her broom, and brings gifts to the good children or coal for the bad ones. Well, these days the ‘coal’ is a crunchy black candy you buy from street-corner carts. In return, Roman children leave her a gift of soft ricotta cheese, since she has hardly any teeth!

Your adventure awaits!
