In the extraordinary natural, artistic and historical background of Tivoli, Villa d’Este is a wonderland of fountains, gardens, nymphaeums, grottoes, and ornamental and musical waterworks – a model often copied in European gardens of the Mannerist and Baroque style. Its construction is inextricably linked to the history of its founder, Cardinal Hippolyte II, son of Lucretia Borgia and Alfonso I d’Este of Ferrar. Read the rest of this entry »

Over 10,000 runners already registered for the 41km-marathon to be held in Rome next March the 21st. Most of them are foreigners; 5,240 (15 per cent more than in 2009), compared with 5,105 Italians (five per cent more than 2009). Given these data it is likely that registrations will reach last year’s threshold of 15,000.
Rome’s 2009 marathon was the world’s sixth fastest (according to both the finishing time of the top ten men and women runners). It ranked behind London, which was top of the list, but ahead of New York, which came 11th. Rome was 15th in terms of number of people who crossed the finish line of the marathon.

The cities prepare themselves for this occasion and Rome is adorned with lights, decorations and ornaments.
Sometimes foreigners travelling to Italy during the Christmas season, complain that Italy is not very “Christmasy”.
Is true in Italy Christmas is still more about religion than commerce. The atmosphere is more subtle than in the US. Nevertless the streets are swarmed with people in search of traditional gifts, and the air echoes from the sound of pipers (zampognari), who every year come down from the mountains in Abruzzo and Ciociaria.

be ready, winter sales will begin in Rome soon.
Winter sales 2010 have been in principle scheduled for January the 2nd and should last for six weeks. This date however is not 100% sure as the Retailers Association is trying to postpone the date at January the 16th. Christmas sales could be in fact seriously affected by the early date of January the 2nd. THE STARTING DATE IS NOW SURE: BE READY TO BARGAIN FOR JANUARY THE 2ND!
Don’t miss to find your bargain in medieval and cobblestoned Roman streets. The “Made in Italy” is waiting for you!
Count down for traditional winter sales in Rome! Soon the most awaited event of the year will start! Hundreds of eager shoppers will line up and “box”outside the stores in the hope of finding the ultimate bargain.
Hundreds the place to go! All the big-name fashion designers can be found in the Quadrilatero, close to Spanish Steps in Via Condotti, Via Frattina and Via del Babuino. If you prefer equally elegant shops, on a smaller scale, head for Via del Governo Vecchio and surroundings amongst the most fashionable shopping streets in Rome.
Many stores will start the day with queues of bargain hunters.
Should winter sales begin January the 2nd, when the Romans are usually out of town, many clients in the more expensive areas will be bargaining from Russia, Japan and the Middle East. Read the rest of this entry »
