In honor of Rome’s birthday, on Sunday (closest to Rome’s Birthday) historic groups from all over Italy (and abroad) representing Ancient Rome’s different eras from the pre-Roman Etruscans, to Imperial Rome and Barbarians who sacked it, gather for a parade that begins in Circus Maximus, travels through Piazza Venezia and along Via dei Fori Imperiali, encircles the Colosseum and returns back to Circus Maximus.
The events don’t end here: after the parade, prepare for an afternoon of spectacular shows inside the Circus Maximus from gladiator fights, ancient funeral ceremonies, dancing, music andbattle reenactments.
On April 21 you can expect evening celebrations taking place on Via dei Fori Imperiali.
In 2011 a live orchestra and reciting of historical events (and special tribute to the beatification of Pope John Paul II) accompanied an impressive light show against the walls of the ancient Trajan’s Market.

When you think of Carnevale in Italy, Venice comes to mind with its lavish costumes, elaborate masks, and inability to find a reasonable hotel during these festivities. But if you happen to be in Rome instead, we invite you to stay in the Eternal City to experience Carnavale the Roman way.
The two most popular piazzas where you’ll find Carnevale excitement during the 10 days of the festival are Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona, although you’re bound to find parades, street performances, plays, butteri (Italian cowboys), costumes, and face painting and more in many areas of Rome’s center. If you just show up, you’re bound to find something fun and exciting happening for adults and kids alike!
If the idea that the Carnevale is just a pre-lent adult fun, think again! Carnevale is just as much fun for kids! If you are traveling with kids during this time, it’s a great opportunity to dig out their Holoween costumes for this special occasions. From Disney cartoon characters to princesses, knights and jesters, during Carnevale you are only limited by your wildest imagination. Sometimes even pets get in on the fun!
On Fat Tuesday (Martedí Grasso) Piazza del Popolo hosted the grand finale of the Carnevale celebrations in 2012. If you have other plans during the day, leave your evening free because this event is one you don’t want to miss! The dramatic and theatrical equestrian presentation on Tuesday, February 24, 2012 followed by a 15 minute spectacular display of fireworks from the Pincian Hill behind the piazza left the hundreds of spectators speechless.
The photo gallery on the Rome Cabs flickr account features photographs taken from the late afternoon and evening performances in Piazza del Popolo on Marti Gras including the breathtaking 10 minute long fire works display from the Pincian Hill behind Piazza del Popolo.
With over a week and a half of festivities during Carnevale, your February visit to Rome could never be more exciting! You can visit Rome’s official Carnevale website for lists of events and other information (also available in English) at: http://en.carnevale.roma.it/

Here is something else amazing to ponder as you peer though the key hole: you are looking through three countries!
You are standing on the independent territory of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta, looking through Rome (Italy), and seeing St Peter’s Dome which is inside the Vatican City.
Travel Tip: Be sure to bring your camera and take a photo of St Peter’s Dome through the key hole.
Tour Tip: If you are booking a Rome in A Day Tour or Shore Excursion with RomeCabs or Stefano Rome Tours, you may combine a visit to Aventine Hill which in addition to the Key Hole, it includes the famous Orange Garden (Giardino degli Aranci) and the Rose Garden in spring (April and May).

Afterwards, Michelangelo regretted his outburst and vowed to never sign another piece of his work again.Praises also came with criticism towards Michelangelo for depicting an exaggeratedly youthful Mary, appearing younger than the son she gracefully holds in her arms. Michelangelo’s reply was, according to Michelangelo’s biographer Ascanio Condivi, “Don’t you know that chaste women remain far fresher than those who are not chaste? So much more the Virgin, in whom never has the least lascivious desire ever arisen that might alter her body….” Other sources suggest Mary honors Michelangelo’s youthful mother who died when he was just 5 years old.
Georgio Vasari, 16th century Italian biographer said of the Pieta: “No sculptor or supreme artist could ever consider it possible to add with design or grace nor with effort improve the elegance, linearity and sculpt the marble with such artistic talent.” Michelangelo’s talent and work has become so well recognized world wide that his signature has never been necessary after that.You can see the Pieta in St Peter’s Basilica, behind the glass inside the Pieta Chapel. It was placed in this chapel in 1749. The Pieta chapel is the most visited place in the basilica.
You may learn more about Michelangelo and the Pieta on our Rome in A Day Tour, offered as a chauffeured Day Tour and Shore Excursion from Civitavecchia: http://www.romecabs.com/cruise.html

Civita di Bangoregio stands at approximately 443 meters above sea level, and it’s connected to the main land by a half mile long footbridge. About two thirds way across the footbridge you will encounter an uphill incline that may pose a level of difficulty for some who have difficulty walking.
You can see more photos taken in Civita di Bagnoregio on some of our tours in our Flickr photo gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/romecabs/5761689524/in/set-72157626810075840
Do you have a favorite town in Italy you’d like to share with us? We’d love to hear from you in the comments box below.
Rome is famous for its mild Mediterranean winters with temperatures averaging 50-60 degrees. However, for the first time in 27 years, Rome has been blanketed by several inches of snow…not once, but twice! An unusually cold front from the north brought record freezing temperatures across Europe, and Rome got its share as well.
Visitors who arrived in Rome during this time can say that they’ve seen the Roman Forum blanketed in snow. Due to safety measures, the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Coliseum were closed to the public. This allowed for a picturesque view of unspoiled snow as was sprinkled like powdered sugar over the ancient monuments.
Visitors also got to see (and create) some of Rome’s new temporary residents: the Snowmen!
For many, a visit to Rome covered in snow is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Weather like this appears to go into a cycle of 20+ years or so. So if anyone asks: “Does it snow in Rome?”, you can smile and answer: “2-3 times a lifetime”.
