Music in Rome
If you are planning a trip in Rome for the upcoming summer and perhaps you have already booked some cultural tours, you know what to do during the day. Then the question will be…what should I spend my nights there?
So, obviously there is one way to fill your time: having an aperitivo ( popular way to have booze with friends) or go to dinner. Apart from this you could embrace the idea of spending an unforgettable night in a different way!
Here comes the Music! ” Without music to decorate it, time is a boring string of deadlines and dates in which to pay the bills” Frank Zappa said.
Rome in terms of music events, concerts, festival, has nothing to envy to European capitals such as London, Amsterdam or Berlin.
In summer the Eternal City hosts several Internazional Festivals and there is something for suit every taste: rock, indie, electronic, reggae and classical music.
Here are some of best summer festivals:
