It’s Christmas time in Rome, and that means one thing – fortune tellers, candy, and a carousel in Piazza Navona. The Piazza Navona Holiday Market, which has slowly been coming to life over the last few weeks, with the addition of semi-permanent vendor stalls and the aforementioned carousel, is now in full-swing. Head into the center for a dose of Christmas cheer – brought to you by way of carnival games, porchetta sandwiches, enormous 3 euro donuts (called ciambelle maxi), and plenty of gifts for sale. The market is open all day every day for the duration of the holiday season, and is a great place to pick up some Christmas decorations (miniature trees abound!), a nativity scene or two (presepi in Italian), or a puppet/key chain/ornament of the traditional befana – the witch-like old woman who delivers candy to good little Italian children on Epiphany Eve.
