ROME TIBURTINO: SPEND LESS, DO MORE

Welcome to Tiburtino

This area is known as the sixth district of Rome and is located east of the city centre. It has great natural places to visit that won’t cost you anything such as the Memorial Park in honour of Villa Mercede and is a convenient place to stay due to the convenience of its railway station which allows great access to other tourist attractions in the city.

Explore some of the historical sites in the area

One of the best places to start is at Basilica di San Lorenzo, the first area to be included in this neighbourhood before the district began to expand in the 1930s and continued to do so in the 1950s and 1960s. Open to the public only in the morning and early evening, this 12th century architectural church is impressive for its sculptures, gallery style walk ways and central gardens. As it is mostly attended by local residents it provides a special insight into Roman religious customs that some of the more famous basilicas on the beaten track are unable to provide.

Another good place to explore some of the history in this area is at the early nineteenth century Verano Cemetery. With its impressive architecture and serene environment, a wander through the landscaped grounds of this impressive cemetery is sure to impress. Or journey further to explore some of the archaeological sites in the area such as the first century BC mausoleum, Prenestino Tower, or the similarly historic Porta Tiburtina Arch.

Or if you are after some family fun join the latest craze by heading to the Escape Room. It’s a great group activity where you will be required to solve puzzles in an attempt to make your way out of the room in a fixed period of time.

Indulge in the local culture

If you’re looking for a relaxing drink during the summer season, the outdoor space at Bar Marani is well worth considering. It’s a not a touristy environment so don’t expect a lot patrons conversing in anything other than Italian but it’s very popular with locals so it’s a great place to sit and people watch while enjoying a coffee or gelato at a reasonable price in a relaxing setting.

If you are interested in night out in Tiburtino some of the top spots to consider include Rive Gauche which is an atmospheric pub style venue that is popular with young local residents. It’s a great venue to mix and mingle with locals and is well worth a visit if you’re staying in this area.

Or why not try your hand at preparing your own authentic Roman meal? At Rome Pizza and Pasta School you will be instructed in the art and process of cooking Italian style including everything from making your own dough, pasta and sauces by a knowledgeable local chef.

And afterwards, dance the night away

Possibly the best place to explore the nightlife in this area is arguably Locanda Atlantide. The musical vibe mainly focuses on the 1970s through to the 1990s, perfect for a retro experience. With a reasonably priced entry fee and a mostly Italian clientele, the atmosphere is great for fun night out on the town.
