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.
Open air theatre performances, movies under the stars, several concerts in unusual locations, any kind of music in any corner of the city, open air clubs and gastronomic festivals. In our opinion, summer is the best time to fully enjoy the city that really becomes the most beautiful city in the world.
Keep yourself update about all the events of the Roman summer on our Facebook page.
In the meanwhile, let’s have a look together at the main festivals that will be offered from the beginning of June.
Villa Ada incontra il Mondo
In the middle of the lake in one of the most famous parks in Rome the festival “Villa Ada incontra il mondo” is a whirlwind of creative music: rock and electronic music, jazz and folk, reggae and hip hop. Live music in the fresh air of the park where there will be also restaurants and street food, labs and courses extremely environmentally-friendly. More info and the dates of the concerts on the website www.villaada.org
Terme di Caracalla in music
A location that is worth the price of the ticket: the ancient imperial Roman thermal baths. In this suggestive timeless location the summer season will present a brand-new offer thanks to new outfitting and international guest stars: the Nabucco by Verdi, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Madama Butterfly. In addition, four add-ons with Roberto Bolle, Lang Lang, Lionel Richie and Neil Young. An offer not to be missed. More info on the website www.operaroma.it
Rock in Roma
During the past six editions more than 1 million people were present at the concerts of the Festival at the Ippodromo delle Capannelle (Via Appia Nuova). One of the most awaited events of the Roman summer that also this year is due to be a great success thanks to special guests: Duran Duran, Skunk Anansie, Iron Maiden, Orchestraccia, Nightwish.
