Organisers say there is something for everyone, from the age of one to 101, at the Auditorium's annual Christmas festival.
The wide-ranging programme features music, theatre, circus, ice-skating, games, exhibitions and markets at the Auditorium which turns into a Christmas village for the duration of the popular event.
Many of the activities are geared towards younger visitors, with attractions including Cartoon Heroes (21 Dec), and puppeteer Mimmo Cuticchios (27-30 Dec).
There is an arts and crafts market Caravanserraglio, the traditional Chiarastella concert by the Orchestra Popolare Italiana which presents Christmas music from different Italian regions (5-6 Jan), and the Roma Gospel Festival (21-31 Dec).
