Where to hang out in Rome? Part 1 of 5
LUNGO IL TEVERE ROMA
You are lucky to experience beautiful Roman summer nights right from the beginning of your semester! The summer weather continues until mid-September (and often beyond), and I must say, at night it is the perfect weather for going out. No rain, no snow (!!!!), no ice—only nice summer breezes under a clear sky.
The city of Rome organizes many fun events in summer- the highlight is definitely Lungo il Tevere Roma (Along the Tiber Roma), one of Rome’s ongoing summer festivals.
Where: along the Tiber river, from Ponte Sisto to Ponte Sublicio
When: July 11, 2011 – August 28, 2011
(Don’t get too excited to see an English version button on the web page… Not much information there. Only in Italian!)
Lungo il Tevere provides people in Rome free access to various cultural events such as movies, exhibitions, fun family activities, along with 60 stores, 11 food stands, many open restaurants and bars.
This year, the summer festival also provides designated areas and facilities dedicated to sports. Along the banks of the river, you will find multi-purpose sports areas where you can play basketball, volleyball, tennis, and soccer.
- Cultural events and performances: Il Teatro a Ripa, near il Ponte Palatino (the Palatine Bridge).
- Street & urban art: the entrance of Galleria del Pigneto
ATTENTION: High risk of massive mosquito attacks!!
