Fireworks show to celebrate St. Peter and Paul

In occasion of the festivity of Saint Peter and Paul, patron of Rome, on the 29 June will take place the traditional “Girandola”, a fireworks show at Piazza del Popolo with a classic music background.

This tradition was born on 1481, invented by the Pope Sixtus V and proposed again for the next years to celebrate important events like Easter or the proclamation of the new Pope, until 1871. It attracted people from all over Europe and from every social background.

Sundance Sunday Pool Party

Second appointment with the Sundance Sunday, a pool party in an enchanting villa immersed in a 40.000 s.m. park nearby Appia Antica, surrounded by a pine forest: DJ set, tasty barbecue, drinks and lots of fun for a different kind of Sunday in Rome. The party begins at 12.00 and ends at 22.00. Around you, only the Roman countryside with its vineyards, fields and grazing lands. 60s-70s music, soul beat, disco, hip-hop, bass music and electronic; and if you are in the mood there’s also a soccer field, a volley field, board games and much more!

Reservation is required. Send an email with name and surname to:

Dolce, restaurant and patisserie

Halfway between a restaurant, a patisserie and a bistrot, Dolce’s cuisine is Mediterranean but has also influences from America and Asia. Cozy, classic and familiar, its style is a mix between old chester sofas, tapestries, brass objects and tea tables. The speciality – as you can deduce from the name – is desserts: apple crumble, blueberry cheesecake, red velvet cheesecake, waffles with mixed berries and much more. But don’t forget their hamburgers with lobster, salmon, vegetables and ink black homemade bread!
