Enjoy our pictures of the Christmas holiday season in Rome, Italy.
Rome is a top Italian city to visit during the Christmas holiday season, from early December through Epiphany on January 6, and the place where the celebration of Christmas originated. The first Christ Mass was said at Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome and what's believed to be the earliest permanent Christmas crib was carved for the first Rome Jubilee in 1300. Just like the city itself, Rome's Christmas traditions are steeped in hundreds of years of history.
