The City Day in Rome is celebrated on April 21. The sequence of festival events last for three days and fascinates with its colors and measure.
How to celebrate Rome's Birthday in Rome
According to legend, in 753 b.c. two brothers, the sons of Mars (the Roman god of war), Romulus and Remus founded Rome and since then the Romans celebrated the Spring Festival every year. The tradition was interrupted only during the Second World War.

How to do?

1. Look at the historic parade, this is the main event. Thousands of people dress like gladiators, legionnaires and nobles in ancient times and march through the whole city.
2. Also the tradition of celebrating is making a beauty contest. The most beautiful girl, the embodiment of the goddess of Olympus is chosen here.
3. You can visit any museum in Rome. On City Day, all of them are free of charge.
4. And do not forget to try traditional Italian dishes: soup, stewed pork or pasta.
5.In the evening, look at the fireworks in the sky of the Eternal City.

When to do?

The holiday is celebrated each year from 21 to 25 April.
