Technotown, an interactive attraction aimed at kids aged 11-17 years old, is a relative newcomer to the Roman kid’s scene. So far it has proved to be a popular hit with all who encounter it and is well worth taking a day out-especially a rainy one-to experience this wow factor attraction where all sorts of media, from 3D to special effects can be experienced.
The Acanto Benessere Spa is a svelte and modern unisex spa where you and your loved one can indulge in a little ‘us time’. With a great range of relaxation treatments on offer including Turkish Baths and massages, this is a serene and tranquil way to spend a few hours after a busy day in the city.
If you are lucky enough to be in Rome in April, then do not even think about missing the excellent and exciting Natale di Roma. Rome’s celebration of its birthday, origins and very existence is a spectacle you should defiantly see, hear, taste and touch. With food and drink stalls, fireworks, shows and a whole hillside and buildings’ illuminated with lights and lasers, this is a truly magnificent experience.
Franchi is a mouth watering deli where queues of slavering Romans stock up on daily essentials from cheese to cured meats and ready to eat meat and seafood dishes. So why not make like a local and head there to gather together all your picnic essentials?
For eating out
GiNa is the perfect antidote to overpriced and quaint tourist trap coffee shops and restaurants. White, clean lines with the occasional splash of delicate colour, this place will make you up a delicious picnic basket which you can take to the nearby Borghese Garden’s or you can sit down and take your pick from the reasonably priced menu which offer classic Italian dishes, as well as more basic fare. From breakfast, to lunch and supper this is a really good option for anyone who just loves food.
La Palma nestled in its post modernist industrial landscape is like a mirage to late night party goers. This club, housed rather unexpectedly in a former industrial building, plays eclectic music sets late into the night. In the summer months, it also plays host to a series of outdoor concerts and jazz festivals which make the most of those long, hot summer nights.
