The holidays are always a magical time of the year, and there are plenty of things to do with kids in Italy at Christmastime. Schools and businesses may be closed, but events, restaurants and locales are going at full throttle. In Rome, while the Christmas tree in Piazza Venezia is catching heat for being a bit, well, Charlie Brownish, you will find sparkling lights, open-air markets, free museums and concerts galore. Here are some of our favorite picks for decking the Roman halls with your Children in Rome.

Vatican Christmas Spectacular / Concerto di Natale • Dec 16 La magia del Natale diventa musica

✨ An all-star cast will be belting out the hits during what is one of the most anticipated concerts of the year. Gospel, Folk, Pop Music – There is something for everyone! Nearby, in Piazza Mazzini, is a wonderful HolidayMarket – one of many popping up all around the city until December 25th.

And, speaking of Gospel Music, every year at the Rome Auditorium – Parco della Musica, an amazing gospel music festival goes thru New Year’s Eve. In addition, they deck the place out in a Winter Wonderland, often with an ice skating rink to boot. It’s always a wonderful time to catch a show, or have a treat in this magical place.
Nearby you’ll find the newly opened Guido Reni Science District, hosting a number of exhibitions for kids all at once. Right now, there are 5 interactive exhibitions going on, from BrikMania – DC Comics version made from Lego Bricks to Real Bodies from Body Worlds and more.
No trip to Rome would be complete without seeing the wonderful manger scene and Christmas Tree in St Peter’s Square, but for the full-on enthusiast, a must-see is the annual display of 100 manger scenes / 100 Presepi in Piazza del Popolo. Promoting the common language of art as an instrument of peace, the scenery is truly a treasure to behold. Nearby is the Rome Zoo, which often hosts festive events for kids in the Villa Borghese – with its train / car that takes you around the park.
