Befana

Befana

Befana is one of the most expected moments of Christmas time in Italy and specially in Rome.
Befana is an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on Epiphany Eve (the night of January 5) in a similar way to Santa Claus. (Source: Wikipedia).

The best place to enjoy this feast in Rome is without a doubt Piazza Navona, with its traditional Christmas market.
