Merry Christmas! If you have any time at all to get lazy this season, you might enjoy reading these suggestions by our Twitter followers. We asked for it, and our Twitter followers sent us some of their excellent blogposts, articles, and photos to feature in our special Christmas edition of “Others Talking about Rome”. Enjoy!
