Summer Events: lungo il Tevere 2019

13 August 2019 What's up in Rome

As if the atmosphere in Rome could not get any more perfect, Lungo il Tevere electrifies Roman nightlife with its 17th annual edition. Lungo il Tevere uses the banks of the Tiber River and invites everyone for some outdoor fun. Started on June 5th, visitors and locals of Rome can experience the event up until August 31st.

The festival has two separate entrances at the street level, one at Ponte Sisto and the other at Ponte Sublicio. From Porta Portese to Piazza Trilussa, you will be inspired by art wherever you look. Artists have the opportunity to express and display their work along the river.

Lungo il Tevere transforms the Tiber River into something so much more than just a historic river to the city of Rome. Instead, this festival steers away the initial excitement of the usual Roman monuments and transforms the riverbanks into something you would not want to miss. Stop by for aperitivo, dinner or drinks in one of the many temporary restaurants and bars.

Enjoy an aperitivo or a nice dinner for two along the Tiber as you watch the sunset and listen to live music. Of course, Lungo il Tevere is also kid-friendly. There are a variety of games which younger guests will enjoy, some of which are even free. Later in the night, the energy at Lungo il Tevere picks up and a young-adult crowd arrives in mass. By midnight, the event takes the form of a bustling bar and hangout.
