Visiting Rome in March can be considered as a pretty perfect idea since Italy in the springtime is not as crowded and hot as it is in the summer. If you are one of those people wanting to take advantage of these nice circumstances keep reading and enjoy our great event-tips for a perfect trip to Rome in March.
Roma Music Festival: Since Italy itself is famous for creating great music it is no big surprise that there are a lot of special festivities all over the country throughout the whole year. One of those lovely events is called the “Roma Music Festival” and – as already said in the name – takes place in Rome. From March 6th to 10th the “International Festival of Choirs and Orchestras” will be held for the 3rd time to fill the air of the “eternal city” with beautiful sounds. During this festival music collaborations of different sizes and ages will perform in various churches and concert halls all over town. Music lovers are highly requested.
Maratona di Roma: Following the footsteps of Italy’s great tradition of running the “Maratona di Roma” will once again take place. On March 23rd athletes can face the challenge of a tough 42km run through the beautiful city of Rome. Starting at Via dei Fori next to the famous Coliseum the route will pass many other enormous sights, e.g. the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the Vatican City and many more. For that reason this race is not only a marathon but also the most athletic way of sightseeing that anyone could choose. People who would like to actively participate can sign in until March 10th, the entry fee is 75€ each runner. All others who prefer not to put on their running shoes are just as welcome to show up to cheer for all the men and women rushing off their feet. For more information just click here.
Saint Patrick’s Day: Even though the Saint Patrick’s Day is no real holiday in Italy, it is celebrated at some places in Rome. Paing homage to the patron Saint Patrick the roots of this day go back to Ireland, where March 17th – the annually Saint Patty’s date – is an official holiday. Since Rome has a fair number of different Irish Pubs it is very likely that you can find many places to celebrate. At the “Abby Theatre Irish Pub” for example they offer live-music, Guinness beer and typical dishes, the “Druids Irish Pubs” promises a real Patty-Party. If you would like to go all the way dress-up green from head to toe and make your roman Saint Patrick’s Day experience complete. Find some more Irish Pubs in Rome online.
Italy vs. England: Another sporty event in Rome in March is the battle between two great national football teams: Italy vs. England. When these football giants meet on March 15th the field will definitely be heating up. Staring people like Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole, Mario Balotelli or Gianluigi Buffon both teams offer a lot of excellent players and for sure won’t show a boring match with this high-level of manpower. When the whistle first blows at kick-off you can be pretty sure that there will not be a lot of free seats in the “Stadio Olimpico” – so hurry up and save yourself some tickets, which cost between 40€ to 150€.
