August in Rome means warm, less chaos and many events not to be missed. The city is not overcrowded, because many Romans leave for their Summer holidays, and this makes it quieter and even more pleasant to travel far and wide.
Summer is at its peak: so why don’t you enjoy it from an wonderful point of view? Here are the 5 things to do in Rome in August, that you must try!

Lungo il Tevere…Roma

This is the Summer appointment par excellence. “Lungo il Tevere Roma” becomes one of the busiest places in the city. Many kinds of restaurants, bars and pubs one after the other, which can satisfy every need. But there’s something more: until September there are different events such as theater performances, open-air cinema, live performances and cultural exhibitions. How about spending a few hours in the cheerful company of Roman nightlife?

Beaches and sea

Rome has an enviable position, because it allows you to easily reach towns on the sea. You’ll be spoilt for choice among Ostia, Fregene, Ladispoli, Anzio, Nettuno… You just have to choose, to enjoy the sea and the good weather, but also some delicious seafood recipe.

The “Castelli Romani”

After exploring the most famous monuments in the world, you can take a day trip out of the city. Direction? The Castelli Romani. In fact, just a few kilometers from the Eternal city there are some very characteristic small towns, which have a lot to offer (as well as a little shelter from the heat!) Ariccia, Frascati, Castelgandolfo, with its swimming lake: places to discover, especially during the Summer.

Zoomarine

A water park close to Rome, where you can not only have fun (and looking for fresh air!) but also participate in special events and interact with dolphins, seals and penguins. Zoomarine is the ideal place for children and can be reached with the special shuttle that leaves from Termini station.

Sea or…lake

The city becomes very hot and after a nice walk to the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and Piazza Venezia, do you feel like spending a day at the beach? The beaches (and the clubs!) Of Ostia can be reached by the Rome-Lido line train from the Piramide metro station. If you love lakes more, Castelgandolfo is suitable for swimming and is definitely worth a visit.

5 cose da fare a Roma in estate

Cappello, abbigliamento comodo e leggero e borraccia d’acqua d’ordinanza (da riempire dai nasoni sparsi in città): è così che ci si prepara ad affrontare l’esuberante estate romana. La città è più viva che mai, colorata e allegra, e sono tante le attività da scegliere per affrontare le sue (caldi) giornate. Perché Roma è davvero speciale, anche d’estate!

Lungo il Tevere Roma

Ristoranti, pub, cinema, ma anche spettacoli teatrali, concerti e mostre: Lungo il Tevere…Roma è l’evento che ogni estate- quest’anno dal 9 giugno al 3 settembre- si svolge sulle sponde del fiume, che diventa così il cuore pulsante della movida cittadina. Un appuntamento imperdibile per chi cerca non solo cultura, ma anche divertimento.

Zoomarine

Un parco acquatico alle porte di Roma, dove è possibile non solo divertirsi (e cercare refrigerio!) ma anche partecipare a eventi speciali e interagire con delfini, foche e pinguini. Zoomarine è il luogo ideale anche per i più piccoli ed è raggiungibile con la speciale navetta che parte da Roma Termini.

Al mare…o al lago

La città si fa incandescente e dopo un bel giro tra Fontana di Trevi, piazza Navona e l’Altare della Patria avete voglia di trascorrere una giornata al mare? Le spiagge (e i locali!) di Ostia sono raggiungibili con il treno della linea Roma-Lido dalla fermata della metro B Piramide. Se invece amate il lago, quello di Castelgandolfo è balneabile e merita sicuramente una visita.

Visitare le catacombe 

Per sfuggire al caldo, ma allo stesso tempo godere della storia millenaria di Roma, perché non programmare una visita alle sue famose catacombe? Quelle di San Callisto sono tra le più importanti di Roma e si trovano sulla via Appia Antica. Ma si può optare anche per quelle di San Sebastiano e di Domitilla.
