How about a new tradition to celebrate the New Year jumping into the cold waters of the Tiber?
How to jump into Tiber river on the 1st of January in Rome
Tradition of jumping into the Tiber in the New Year is nearly half a century, it began with unemployed lifeguard, who was desperately looking for a job. Did he find it after that - no one knows, but the tradition has taken root.

Now every year a few brave souls jumping from the bridge of Cavour in the cold waters of the river under the cheers of all those who came to celebrate the New Year together with the residents of the city. The height of the bridge - 17 meters, and the water temperature does not exceed +10°C.
