New Year in Rome
The cute tradition of Italians to throw everything old out of the house on New Year's Eve symbolizes the desire for renewal. Therefore, when celebrating the New Year in Rome, you should carefully look up: following this nice custom, they often do not bother themselves and throw unnecessary things right out of the windows..
Celebrate Christmas with your family
Tradition in no way concerns relatives and friends, and therefore Christmas week in Italy is an excellent occasion for all relatives to gather at a festive and generous table. New Year's Eve is a different matter, and during these hours most Italians go to visit, walk the streets, dine in restaurants and hang out in clubs.
Family dinners offer an extensive menu. Housewives bake turkey or chicken with apples, cook cakes with candied fruits and dried fruits and, of course, put pasta on the table as a symbol of the inviolability of national traditions and family foundations. Tourists can taste all these masterpieces of Italian cuisine in the best Roman trattorias and restaurants. The famous Art Cafe overlooking the Colosseum for dessert pampers visitors with live music in the style of the 80s, and the restaurant on Piazza Navona 4 Сolonne gives the splendor of the illumination of an old fountain to ice champagne.
New Year in Rome begins with the last strike of the clock and with it starts a festive procession through the catacombs of St. Priscilla. Crowds of well-dressed people pass through the main streets and squares of the Italian capital, sing songs and rejoice at the onset of a new stage in life. The procession is accompanied by brass bands performing everything from military marches to Latin American salsa.
The love of Italians for life and their incredible optimism are very contagious, and therefore the New Year in Rome is a great opportunity to get a sea of positive for many days ahead..
