The Eternal City, like much of the rest of Italy, is completely transformed during the Christmas holidays. The possibilities for Christmas in Rome are endless, especially if you are traveling with children. Winter events at the theme park Cinecittà World are also amazing, but today we will focus on one of the newest events in the Lazio region: Christmas Wonderland.

Christmas Wonderland

If you are spending your Christmas holiday in Rome and looking for something extra special to do with your children, then you won’t want to miss Christmas Wonderland. From December 20th, 2019 to January 6th, 2020 a real Christmas village will be set up where you can fully experience the magic of the holidays.

With around 5,000 square meters of surface area, Christmas Wonderland will delight everyone from the oldest to the youngest thanks to the numerous attractions, activities, and entertainment.
