Along the Tiber (Lungo al Tevere) is one of the Rome’s most popular summer festivals. The bank of the Tiber river comes alive with a myriad of activities. You would be hard pressed not to find something of interest here. It’s everything you need for a night of fun under the stars. Hungry? There are a multitude of restaurants to choose from – and not just Italian food. You can also find Middle Eastern, Tex-Mex and other options. Thirty? Drinks from granitas to beer and wine are available. Feeling active? Play basketball, football, Padbol or foosball. Need a gift for someone at home? Hit the shopping stalls with clothing, jewelry and crafts. Feeling cultural? Check out the exhibits of statues, photography and paintings. Want to hear some live music? Got that covered as well.
The nights in Rome are cool and breezes along the Tiber are refreshing. Unwind after a long day with friends or meet some new ones. The people watching at the festival is unbelievable as well.
Along the Tiber runs daily until September 1. Entrance to the festival is free. Gates open at 7p-1a, but just like the restaurants in Rome the place starts hopping about 9p. The event spans almost one mile of the river on the west bank of the Tiber from the Sisto Bridge to the Sublicio Bridge.
