On this week’s “did you know?” It’s ROME’s birthday! That’s right Tanti Auguri Rome!!!!! (Best wishes) Could it be that Rome is celebrating their 2,772nd birthday or the Natale di Roma? (Christmas in Rome) It is correct they will be celebrating their miraculous 2,772nd birthday and what better way to get to know the history of the beautiful city of Rome. Rome offers a generous opening of all of their museums to the public for free, yes that includes the fee to enter inside of the Colosseum is completely waived.
If you ask me, there is no better way to get to know the immense history behind all 2772 years of Rome’s existence. Wouldn’t you love to walk down the tunnels that Julius Cesar once walked or possible was carried through. If I had the opportunity I would go to Rome simply to learn about the history, the beautiful artwork and the majestic buildings that have been built throughout the years.
However, if you want to be more interactive you can wait for the marvelous spectacle that is shown during the day. The grand spectacle is this weekend, when a massive parade (with gladiators who fight to the utter death! (not to the death, actually there is no fighting during the parade, but it’s still a sight to see) It will kick off at Circo Massimo, march past the Colosseum, and up Via dei Fori Imperiali, past the Vittoriano, before looping down towards where it all began at Circo Massimo. If you ever have the chance to go, go visit Rome during April 21st to experience every bit of emotion Rome can offer.
