ATP Masters Series: Rome

10 - 17 May 2020

Foro Italico

Many tennis fans consider the Rome Masters to be the second most prestigious clay court tennis tournament in the world, after the French Open. The ATP Masters Series consists of nine tennis tournaments that are held annually in Europe and North America and sees the world's top tennis players competing for the title of world number one. The Rome Masters has officially been called the Internazionali BNL d'Italia since 2002, but the old name is still more commonly used among fans. The Italian tennis championship was first held in 1930 in Milan. Rafael Nadal is the most successful player in the Rome Masters to date. The Rome Masters is a fun tournament to attend and the crowds are passionate and less polite and formal than you might find at tournaments like Wimbledon.

Birth of Rome Celebrations

Every year, the birth of Rome is celebrated on 21 April, with numerous events taking place at notable venues around the city, including the Roman Forum and Campidoglio. If you're lucky enough to be in Rome over this period, you will have access to all sorts of activities and performances.

Many of the Roman buildings in the city are illuminated at night, and they come alive with reenactments of scenes from Roman history, concerts, fireworks, parades, gladiator shows (historical accuracy is thankfully compromised so that nobody dies) and traditional banquets.

Another huge bonus for tourists is that all of the museums and parks in Rome are open to the public on this day every year so that people can celebrate the great city's cultural heritage. Of course, the lack of admission charges does mean that attractions get very crowded and accommodation can be difficult to find on short notice, so it is best to book your trip well in advance. Partaking in Rome's birthday celebrations is fun and festive and the Italians tend to be extremely proud of their heritage and eager to share it.

Rome Marathon

5 April 2020

Starts at the Colosseum

This annual event takes runners on a scenic tour of Rome, passing some of the most famous monuments in the city like the Colosseum and St Peter's Basilica. Although it may be a tiring way to tour the city, it is an exhilarating race, extremely well-supported, and enjoys a festive atmosphere.

The Marathon Village sets up about a week in advance with concerts, stalls, and shows, as well as all the practical race necessities. In fact, during the races, the event turns the city into a stage with more than 50 music acts including international stars, rock bands, DJs, folk groups, and local talent performing along the route to encourage the runners and entertain the crowds of spectators.

Although the full marathon is a serious competitive event which attracts talented runners from all over the world, there is also the Roma Fun Run, which is non-competitive and attracts about 80,000 people annually. Participants in this event are free to do as they please and some bring along their dogs or rollerblades.
