Christmas tree at Piazza Venezia in 2019

The Christmas tree located at Piazza Venezia in Rome has turned into one of the most famous Christmas trees in the world since 2017. That is when a tree that cost 45,000 Euro looked like a bald person (Spelacchio) with some silver decorations on it. Luckily for Rome, the tree became a bigger success in 2018, and now we are already looking forward to seeing the Christmas tree in 2019.

But, when will the Christmas tree be raised on Piazza Venezia in Rome in 2019? The tree is sponsored by Netflix, and it contains more than 600 spheres, and an amazing number of 60,000 LED lights to make it look beautiful in the evenings.

When will the lights be turned on at the Piazza Venezia Christmas tree in 2019?

The Christmas tree will be at the square from December 8th until January 6th. The lights will be turned on for the first time on December 8th just after it turns dark.

There will be lots of other Christmas trees located all around Rome, and the one in front of St. Peters Basilica is one of the most famous. There are also beautiful Christmas lights everywhere in the central area of Rome, so make sure to walk around to enjoy the beauty of the city in this period of the year.

Rome isn’t a city known for its amazing Christmas market at Piazza Navona anymore. If you want to know more about it, click the link. So, if you want to visit a traditional big and impressive Christmas market, you should probably visit a city like Prague or Vienna to enjoy the Christmas markets in those given cities. They are much bigger and more impressive than the Christmas markets in Rome. But, Rome is Rome, and it is a city worth visiting all year round, no matter if it has big Christmas markets or not!
