If you would like to experience something very different, you should come to Rome very soon. Just rent your apartment (Hotels Rom) and go discover the city.
Rome is famous for its sights such as the Coliseum, however this is not the only reason to visit the ‘Eternal city’. During the next few months there are a lot of events that you really shouldn’t miss.
From September until October 31st, the biggest hot-air balloon in the world will be stopping over in Rome and you’ll have the opportunity to travel up to 150 metres high for 15 minutes. Go along to the Galoppatoio di Villa Borghese to experience a trip you won’t forget.
If you can’t imagine your holiday without a swimming pool, you’ll be completely fine in Rome. From mid June until mid September you can enjoy a sunbath at the shore of the Tiber. From here you can see the great view of the Petersdom. There are many different choices of swimming pools and of course you have the chance to rent parasols and sun loungers. Furthermore, there’s a gym, a pool table and much more available for you to use.
During Estate Romana, which takes place from June until September, there are a lot of events in various parks and galleries where you can see concerts for example. It doesn’t matter if you prefer jazz or rock concerts, open-air cinemas or exhibitions…Here you will find something that you will like.
Notte Biance (White night) takes place on the 8th to the 9th of September. This night offers entrance to most of the city’s museums, theatres, cinemas, shops etc free of charge. This night is organized in order to bring the city together and have a good time. There are more than 100 events which will be raising money for worthwhile causes; disadvantaged people like orphans, the blind or the homeless get the chance to participate in events, exactly how anyone else would.
If you would like to receive the famous blessing “Urbi et Orbi” by the Pope, you should spend Easter or Christmas in Rome. The Pope gives his blessing to these both events. Both times, the Petersplatz is crowded with people from all over the world.
On 6th January Rome celebrated Befana. This event is held in honour of a good witch. The good kids get sweets while the bad kids receive coal.
