La Befana in Rome


Italy’s best-loved crone is celebrated in the most traditional and enjoyable way in Rome! Navona Square has been the best place for celebrating Epiphany for almost a century: booths filled with traditional sweets, stockings of all kinds and sizes and especially the “enchanted apple”. This holiday classic is an apple on a stick that has been coated with red sugar (the traditional apple from Snow White). There are a good amount of performing street artists to entertain the people filling up the Piazza and even some live Crones (Befane) waiting to be photographed alongside the guests.
