What's On in 2016 in Rome




Bruce Springsteen is back on the 16th of July playing to a capacity 250 thousand people in Rome’s recently renovated Circus Maximus. Come and join the party and See Bruce perform in what could prove to be his swansong tour… The River Tour in Rome 16th July!

April till 26 June 2016 – Scuderia del Quirinale
Correggio also known Antonio Allegri and his contemporary Francesco Mazzola aka Parmigianino were 2 of the finest late Renaissance artists. Their works have been gathered from around the world and housed in one place for your pleasure.. Not to be missed!

We've all been running in our lives once upon a time but this must be one of the most scenic 5km charity runs in the world taking in Circus Maximus, Roman Forum , Colosseum etc and all for a wonderful cause – to raise money and awareness about Breast Cancer – the Run for the Cure is open to everyone and last year in excess of 80 thousand people took part… register online here then come and join the party.

Anyone who comes to Rome absolutely must visit the stupendous Basilica of St Peter witnessing the art & architecture of Michelangelo and Bernini amongst other masters, and seeing the bones of St Peter. Situated in the Vatican visitors should also see the breathtaking Vatican Museums which culminate in the viewing of Michelangelo's masterful ceiling in the Sistine Chapel of God stretching out to touch the hand of Adam and man failing to try to touch the Hand of God.

When people think of Rome they usually think of a maze of cobbled streets, or the Coliseum, or St Peters or crazy traffic, but few people realise how close to lots of beaches Rome actually is. In the hot summer months, hoards of Romans pour out of Rome onto the train and travel around 40 minutes to their favourite sandy spot and work to perfect their tans. The most notable destinations are Lido di Ostia or Cristoforo Colombo (with direct trains from Termini for just 1.50 Euros) and Fregene. Soak up the Italian sun, enjoy the sandy beaches tan yourself silly!! You can also get 1 stop before the beach and visit Ostia Antica a wonderfully preserved part of ancient Roman history – don’t miss it !

Synonymous with Rome, this icon of the Roman empire and it's military and gladiatorial past is truly a sight to behold. Remarkably beautiful when the sun kisses the stone, the Coliseum is a must-see in Rome and has the added benefit that it's adjacent to the Imperial Roman Forum and numerous ancient Basilica's which are also fantastic places to visit. Of course the Coliseum has witnessed rivers of blood in it's time, none more historically important than the blood of countless Christian martyrs who were slaughtered here and which means that now, the Church consider the site to be holy ground. Make your visit and immerse yourself in the history of the building and it's surroundings and the sheer awesomeness of the building and the age of the city, truly hit home. Unmissable.

EUR built during the 1930’s has a surreal atmosphere to it … full of wonderfully white buidlings set in spatial surroundings EUR deserves’ a visit if solely to see Rome’s Square Coliseum. Easily connected via the Metro Line B please go see it. NB the Palazzo della Civilità (square colosseum) is now the head office of Fendi the Italian fashion label and is tastefully illuminated in the evening.,_Rome

Monti is the most hip and happening area in the whole of Rome… full of cafes , trattoria’s, art galleries, wine bars and music schools Monti is the busiest most bohemian part of Rome and still has prices which reflect its student heritage – unlike the overpriced and over populated Trastevere… highlights in Monti include the Tre Scalini Wine Enoteca, the trattoria Suburra, Libro and Vino table football café and of course the oldest pub in the neighbourhood Finnegans.

Peek-a-boo!! Journey to the top of the Aventine Hill next to Circo Massimo and you may find a line of people queuing to look through a keyhole. Don't worry - they're not perverted peeping Toms but have found a truly amazing view of 3 separate sovereign states. Take a look for yourself to see what lies beyond the keyhole...

Sun-bathing on the coast, or wining and dining in the districts of Rome, or seeing the amazing tourist sites is all very well, but what about nightlife...? The most common place to go for clubbing and bars open all night is Monte Testaccio which is a hill surrounded by bars and clubs at its base. Dance the night away sipping cocktails till your hearts content. The area of Testaccio is also a great place for superb restaurants which serve typically Roman cuisine. Time to party!!!
