If history is more their thing try the 3D-Rewind experience at the Coliseum which gives a fascinating 3D look at how the historic building and the Forum would have looked during the Roman times.
Throughout the year Rome puts on a number of regionally traditional events such as festivals and processions that spill out onto the street and get every local and visitor of the city involved in colourful and vibrant celebrations. If you are in town from late July to September don’t miss the Estate Romana Festival, where you can catch some regional rock, jazz and classical music concerts, as well as film, theatre and sport activities and special goings-on for children. Similar occasions for national holidays and religious festivals also happen throughout the calendar.
Enjoy your trip to the spellbinding city of Rome!
