The trees are going to loose their leaves. But Rome's cultural life is going to blossom out. Fall does not only bring cooler temperatures and wind, it also lets the festival and cultural season start. Come to Rome, and be a part of the flowering season!
We prepared a list with some of the greatest events in the city for you. Have a look at it, and then book your flight to Italy's capital!
Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi
Every year on or about the 3rd October, the Saint Francis of Assisi is celebrated. He died on the same day in 1226. In Rome, there is a wreath-laying near the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano. Otherwise, you can go to the Church of San Francesco a Ripa in Trastevere where Saint Francis stayed in a hospice in 1219.
This most important Italian cultural festival, first hold in 1986, takes place in Rome from 25th September to 30th November. Every year, art of the five continents come together in the Italian capital. There is a spectacular programme of dance, music, Cinema, Theatre, meetings with artists, leading-edge technological creativity, and visual arts.
Opera and Theater Season ends
This year, the season ends spectacularly with the Ballet "Cinderella" (25th Sep.to 5th Oct.) and the Opera "Rigoletto" (21st to 31st Oct.). More information about the the Opera and Theater season as well as classical music in Rome will you find here.
Hunger Run in Rome
The annual Hunger Run event in Rome is this year on Sunday 19th October. This fund-raising event is supposed to help the poor to improve their ability to produce and access food. There are a ten-km race (only for athletes with a FIDAL membership card) and an non-competitive five-km run or walk. Both of them take place in the historic centre of Rome, which will be closed to traffic. Registrations are still open, and it costs only 10 Euro to participate.
However, Rome is more than cultural life. This city has so much more to offer. If you are not interested in all those cultural events, you can walk through the city and discover several little spots. You don't like walking, rent a bike or scooters and experince the city on a new way.
