Hotels rome Center for Epiphany

Hotels in Rome center had special offers to promote the Epiphany. Sunday, January 6, 2013, is a holiday that cannot be missed for a very pleasant winter stay in Rome: the tradition that Epiphany is celebrated in the magnificent and ancient Roman square of Piazza Navona. This square was built by the emperor Domitian as a stadium that could hold 30,000 spectators, and much later embellished by beautiful fountains of Bernini's  “4 fiumi” in front of the church of St. Agnes in Agony of Borromini and the Fountain of the Moor and Neptune. In this square banquets are prepared overflowing with gifts, children's gifts and delicacies and sweets for everyone. A little poem that describes the Befana comes from afar, coming from the mountains at nightime. She was tired, snow surrounding, frost and wind. In Rome, there is the tradition of hanging stockings on the hearth or near the Christmas tree waiting for the night between 5 and 6 of January when the witch riding a broomstick fly over the homes to fill sweet chocolates, fruit candies, tangerines, nuts, dried fruits and small gifts to good children and coal for bad children who have been naughty. Hotels in central Rome near Piazza Navona host tourists waiting to see Santa Claus, personified as a witch, arrive in a carriage with Santa Claus. The Holy Family that are set up in the Roman Churches throughout the Christmas period, arrives the three Kings from the far east, and the legend they are called Gaspar, Melchor and Baltasar. According to a religious version,  the 3 kings were directed to Bethlehem to bring gifts to the Baby Jesus such as gold, frankincense and myrrh.
