The Best Daytime and Nighttime Outings In our opinion, you shouldn’t leave Rome without taking part in at least a few of the following adventures. Chapter 1: Discovering the Best of Rome 13 ߜ Go for a river cruise along the Tiber. The Compagnia di Navigazione Ponte San Angelo organizes both romantic dinner cruises and day excursions, including a great one to Ostia Antica. See Chapter 11. ߜ Take a walk by moonlight near the church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli and up to the Capitoline Museums on Piazza del Campidoglio for a unique view over the Forum.

Plan your museum visits carefully, and definitely make reservations. Chapter 3: Deciding When to Go 31 ߜ May 1 is Labor Day in Italy, and all workers in Rome have the day off, including waiters, shopkeepers, and bus drivers. Everything shuts down, even public transportation. July and August Summertime is when most people take their vacations, and there are many upsides: ߜ The weather is beautiful, and outdoor life — especially in the sweet evenings — is at its max. ߜ You can get discount rates in most hotels.

August The pagan holiday of Ferragosto — and the religious holy day of the Assumption — celebrates the culmination of the summer. Romans vacation on the seashore and in the mountains. Most businesses are closed, so call ahead to make sure your destination is open. August 15. September La Notte Bianca — White Night, in English — is a magic night of entertainment, cultural events, and shows scheduled throughout the city and throughout the night.
