Festa della Donna

About Festa Della Donna

Festa Della Donna is an internationally recognised day to celebrate the women of the world, whilst in Italy and Rome in particular there are a number of events specifically dedicated to the ladies.  The tradition stems from February 1909 and New York in honour of the “International Ladies Garment Workers Union”, with the date moving to March 8th through convenience.  Italy takes the day to celebrate the achievements of women through their political, economic and social achievements.  Although it is a tradition for men to give women flowers, Italy in particular chose yellow Mimosas.

Helpful information about Festa Della Donna

The nearest airports are Ciampino Airport and the Leonardo da Vinci Airport, from which you can reach the city centre of Rome within 45 minutes.  Italy hosts ladies only nights, so if you’re male then this isn’t one for you.  While spas hold pamper sessions, many of the evenings are centred around food and drink, and the celebration is aimed at the over 18’s.  Prices vary depending on the venue, but expect to pay from around €20 to €25 per person for set dinner prices.

Making the most of Festa Della Donna

If you’re visiting Rome specifically for Ladies Day, then the men of the house should be left at home or if it falls when you’re on holiday together make sure you take some time out for yourself. Look for spa’s offering special discounts during the day, or take a group of friends out in the evening for a spot of dinner.  Look at the official website for a list of participating restaurants and book in advance. If you’re not adult entertainment, be warned that it’s not just the strip clubs that book strippers for this particular night.
