Every summer I visit Rome for a weekend, and I never lose this appointment. I really like the atmosphere and the possibility of doing something new everyday. It is rich in interesting events and food is very good, too. I spend a great night, in a wonderful place, spending a few money, as the majority of events and shows are free.

I have two little daughters, so going out during the night is not very easy, because I never find events good for them too, giving the possibility to amuse themselves and relax ourselves. When Lungo il Tevere takes place, I know that a relax and amusements season is starting, rich in activities we can do with our children.

Yesterday, I was in Rome so I had a walk along the Lungo il Tevere. I usually visit Rome, but I have to say I have never seen the river so beautiful. Shows and exhibitions are very good, well accompanied by the food stands that allowed me to taste the original Roman food, tasting a delicious "maritozzo con la panna".

I love handicrafts. I adore wearing the creativity of those people, making so lovely accessories. Every summer during the manifestation, I get lost around the stands of local handicrafts, and I always find something very interesting. Moreover, I dedicate my shopping night to good food too, together with free music and art shows, always very good and appreciated.

Last year, I visited the exhibition Lungo il Tevere. I love lyrical music and I didn't want to miss the Accademia di Santa Cecilia show, in a fantastic framework as the river Tiber is. So I decided to plan a weekend in Rome to go to the show. I can't tell about the greatest capacity of the artist's and about the beauty of the natural background. I will surely come back next year, to dedicate some time to the theatre shows, too.
