Festivals & Events

Rome has always been the place where festivals and events took place non-stop all year round. Ancient Romans had a festival for practically every reason they could think of. During the time of Augustus, there were "only" 115 festivals in a year. Each ruler after him added more and more festivities to the calendar. Today, Rome offers a wide variety of events and festivals to suit the fancy of any Roman or tourist.

To enumerate a few of Rome's special events, we can name one for every month of the year. There is the Rome Independent Film Festival held in February, the Eurochocolate in March, the Good Friday Procession usually held in April, the Expo Tevere in June, July's High Fashion Show of Trinità dei Monti, the three-month long Gay Village festival that culminates in August, September's International Urban Theatre Festival, the Great Autumn Market that opens in October, the Roma Jazz Festival that runs from October to November, and a host of other special events and festivals that take place from December to January.

There is an unending list to Rome's roster of festivities. It's actually the perfect gauge to find out the best time of the year for you to come over for a visit. Check out the events schedule for the year and find out which ones you don't want to miss. Make sure to schedule your trip properly in order to make time for these fabulous shows and extravaganzas. In Rome, the Eternal City, there's never a dull moment.
