Labor day

Lost empires of Rome

Hot midday sun and monuments made by Italian genius, surprising you on every step you make in this ancient open air museum, Rome...They say, Romans know how to enjoy life, sipping hundred coffees on their way to work and between the break, there is no bed time to say Prendiamo il cafe?

They also say Romans are lazy...whether it's true, one is for sure, they will live longer than rest of us and enjoy the life a lot more. 1st of May, all workers day is coming, and whether you like it or not, Romans will celebrate it as best as they can:)

Labor Day brings a lot of concerts and events to Rome, it has been celebrated since 1880, when they were fighting for their rights. Farmers and other workers traditionally took the day off to eat, socialize and dance on May 1, until it was cancelled for about 20 years, but was back on track in 1945 with many other countries globally.

Italians trade unions organized the big music events of first of may at San Giovanni Square. From early morning until late in the night, there will be performances of Italian and foreign artists.

It's a public holiday, so most of the services will be closed in the capital, you will find interesting parades and events you could celebrate with Romans, be prepared for big crowds. So get there before, most of the roads will be closed for cars and public transport, prepare to pay taxi or walk home, and don't forget every now and than to be Roman and enjoy life, specially worker day, 1st of May!
