Christmas in Italy – Buon Natale from Food Fashionista

Here’s a holiday post from last year that never gets old! Enjoy…


For most, this definitely has to be one of the busiest weeks of the year. With traveling, last minute shopping, gift wrapping and Christmas festivity prepping, it’s kind of crazy to digest that when this week is over, it will already be a new year. Time just flies by, so it is best to enjoy it while you can. If you haven’t been to Italy, I highly recommend Rome during the holidays. Although very chilly, it is so romantic and captivating. You can even attend mass in Vatican City with the Pope, instead of watching it on television. Italy is truly one of my favorite countries. It represents the best of fashion, food, and a myriad of art history. Most of these photos were taken in Rome, with a few shots in Umbria. Wherever you are spending this last week of 2010, I’m wishing you all peace, joy, love and blessings this holiday season and always.
