When in Rome , just party like an Italian ! Here some suggestions of what you can do 🙂
1 * Cenone ( New Year’s Eve dinner)
One of the most common way to celebrate the New Year ‘s Eve in Italy, is to have a plentiful dinner at home with family and the beloved ones
Traditional dishes that can’t be missed are Lentils and Cotechino ( pork sausages ). Both Cotechino and Lentils represent abundance since the Roman times.
Eating lentils the night of New Year’s Eve symbolizes the wish of prosperity and fortune for the new year. This tradition comes from the Romans, who used to donate a leather bag containing lentils, with the wish that they would be transformed into coins.
If you are a tourist , many restaurants offer a New Year’s menu, excellent in quality and tradition !
Just remember to book ahead.
2 * New Year’s Eve outdoor.
Another common way to celebrate New Year’s Eve is to party in the heart of the towns. Concerts and streets shows are organized everywhere in Italy, both in small villages and in big cities.
In Rome you will find 24 hours no-stop shows. Free theatre and dance performances with street artists all around the city center.
Along the Tiber there will be the greatest fun as well as around Circo Massimo and Coliseum area, where after midnight will perform the big Italian artist Vinicio Capossela !
At midnight you can watch the fabulous fireworks over the Coliseum. UNMISSABLE !
3* Disco Party !
Still not tired? What about going dancing till dawn ?!
Here’ s a list of discos where you can dance all night long , but also book there a dinner!
Just remember to book and pay in advance
We wish you a joyful end of the Year and Great start of the new one!
