More Splendid Christmas Lights In Rome

Xmas Lights in Rome

After my Splendid Christmas lights in Rome post, another hotel in Rome, Hotel Kent, tweeted me more Christmas photos.  I liked their photos too, so I tweeted the Hotel Kent a request for permission to publish them.  Luckily, they said yes.

It seems that Rome’s hoteliers are out and about this Christmas snapping away at Rome’s Christmas lights, which is no bad thing!

Here, then, is another selection of lovely Rome Christmas lights photographs.

A building in central Rome in all its festive splendour:

The Alberto Sordi shopping mall is attractively festive too:

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Also in the Alberto Sordi shopping mall in Rome, is this Christmas globe.  Global Christmas:

And finally, is this close up of the spectacular blue Christmas tree in Rome which you may well recognise, if you saw my previous Splendid Christmas lights in Rome post:

Rome’s Christmas lights are likely to be up until around the 6th January, so there is still time to catch the street spectacle.  You could always stay at the centrally located Hotel Kent too.

Rome’s after Christmas sales will be starting shortly – not a bad time for bargain hunters.

Many thanks to Rome’s Hotel Kent for allowing me to use their photographs.

Lover’s Tiff in Italy

Gianfranco Fini, Berlusconi’s number two, has been grumbling about Berlusconi’s management of Italy for some time. Last week, Fini’s dissent came to a very public head. The Fini/Berlusconi relationship within the “Party of Love” does not look too amorous at the moment.

Berlusconi, Antigua, Report, Question Marks

The Report documentary programme broadcast by the RAI 3 television channel is already unpopular with Italy’s government for shedding light on many of Italy’s dark sides. Last night, despite threats from Berlusconi’s lawyer who wanted to ban the programme, Report covered Silvio Berlusconi’s ownership of a luxury residential complex in offshore tax haven, Antigua. Report’s report raised a few questions.
