Appia Antica

Via Appia Antica is surely something that will make you realize how majestic the ancient Romans were. This road has stood the test of time and spans for kilometers today. The most fun way to enjoy it is to rent a bike and just start pedaling. It’s perfect for couples of all ages and families!

Boat Tour

Although walking around is probably the best way to enjoy Rome, a river boat cruise along the Tiber can certainly be another thing to do in Rome in September. You will get a view of the city from another perspective.

Watching a soccer game

If you are a soccer fan, going to the stadium to watch a game is another option.

Cybertech Europe 2019

If you are a cyber geek, this is the event for you. The “Nuvola Convention Center” once again hosts the international event where technology representatives from all over the world gather to discuss, present and enjoy the power of technology. 

Save the dates: September 24th and 25th. 

Taste of Roma

Taste of Roma is a four-day festival where gourmet food and excellent wine meet to offer you a culinary experience like few others.

La conserva delle Neve

The Orto Botanico in Trastevere is this year’s perfect setting for the XVII edition of the Conserva della Neve event.

It is an exhibition of flowers and plants of all sorts of colors and shapes. You can either buy what you like or just enjoy the colors and scents as you make your way through the garden.

From the 20th to the 22nd of September.

Art and churches

Rome is so full of beauty that you can even find precious pieces of art in churches around the city without paying. The three churches of San Luigi dei Francesi, Santa Maria del Popolo and Sant’Agostino have original Caravaggio’s paintings for anyone to see for free. Going around looking for hidden treasure is definitely among the things to do in Rome in September!

San Paolo Basilica

Villa Borghese

A walk in Villa Borghese is always a good idea. On foot or by bike, this heart-shaped park is never a disappointment.

If you like art, then you cannot miss Galleria Borghese, one of the most beautiful museums in Rome.

If you are traveling with kids, then the Bioparco will be a fun activity to do with them. All the animals you can think of, picnic areas and an old-fashioned white train to go around the park are the main attractions.

Giardino degli aranci (parco Savello)

This is probably one of the most romantic places in Rome. People go there when it is closed to see St. Peter’s Basilica from the keyhole. When it is open instead, a walk in the garden with a great view of the city is what the place has to offer.

Sagra della Porchetta 

The porchetta festival is a yearly appointment for roasted pork and good wine’s lovers. This year will be on September 1st, an all-day long event which contains the whole Roman spirit and its love for food.

You can either reach Ariccia by train from Termini or rent a car for the day. It will be worth it!
