It is officially summer, the most pleasant season to visit Rome, to discover its beauties and to enjoy all the events happening in the hottest months. Initiatives, concerts, shows in the centre of Rome but also in the suburbs.

The Italian cuisine proves to be again one of the most esteemed in the world. In particular, this year we can really state that the Italian enogastronomic tradition is the best in the world thanks to Massimo Bottura who has been recently awarded as the best chef in the world according to the 50Best ranking.

Today we will introduce you another important event of the Roman summer. Indeed, every year the Cavea of the Auditorium Parco della Musica livens up with music and joy. Under the stars of the Roman nights Italian and international artists will perform on the stage of the work realized by Renzo Piano and dedicated to the music.

A confirmation in the programme of the Roman summer. Indeed, also this year the event with the opera at the Baths of Caracalla is back. The location represents one of the most gorgeous examples of imperial baths in Rome. They are well preserved and free from modern buildings.

In order to deeply understand Rome and to live an unforgettable experience we have created a tour that will literally let you taste the Italian and Roma traditions and culture.

Also this year the event with the works by William Shakespeare under the stars is back. The 2016 season will be even more exciting because it will happen 400 years after the death of the English writer (23rd April 2016). The playbill privileges the works which have been set in Italy and deal with justice and the enactment of the law.

It’s time! Summer is coming and we constantly think about the holidays. If you are taking into consideration the idea to spend some days or even weeks in the Eternal City in order to enjoy its timeless monuments, its unique masterpieces, the sun and the beaches, and the breathless sunsets, we suggest you to have a look at our offers to overnight.

Museums, historical palaces and culturally interesting buildings. These places house shows and exhibitions in Rome. The range is really wide and we want to keep you updated on the most awaited and successful exhibitions.

Every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 8:10 pm till 12:00 am it will be possible to admire an incredible show.

The Italian culture has always been strongly connected to the wine and food tradition. In Italy eating means socialization and hospitality. The food, from pasta to coffee, is part of the Italian culture, society, customs and traditions.

The weather in Rome is so good that people can spend the time out also during the winter nights. Indeed, during spring and summer it is even more pleasant to spend the nights in the streets and wonderful squares of the city centre. Romans know it!

From today on, it is possible to book our tours in order to discover Rome with skilled tourist guides through classical, unusual and experiential paths.

What a wonderful city is Rome in summer! There is less traffic, the chaos decreases and there are many initiatives, events and cultural exhibitions which liven the city up from dusk till dawn.
