Romeís Christmas trees


A Christmas tree is back in Romeís central Piazza Venezia for the first time in four years. Now that the archaeological excavations for the new metro C underground line have been moved to the side of the square the central position is free once again for trees and flower beds. This year the 25-m high Christmas tree comes from the Val di Fiemme in the Dolomites.

Across the Tiber the Christmas tree for the Pope has travelled from the Ardennes in Belgium this year. It tops the one in Piazza Venezia by 5 m.

Since 1982, when Pope John Paul II was sent a Christmas tree from Poland, the tree that stands in the centre of St Peterís Square next to the nativity crib is donated by a different country.
