Come and celebrate all that represents Latin America in this annual event. Having started in 1995, Fiesta takes place in the EUR region of Rome, a site generally associated with the dictatorship of Benito Mussolini. From June through to September however the area comes alive with plenty of Latino music, salsa and meringue dancing as well as food and market stalls embracing the culture. Whilst providing a party atmosphere, there is also a mission to break down barriers and bring together the Latin American community with the rest of Rome and what better way to do it!
The nearest airports to Rome are Ciampino Airport and Fiumicino Airport, both of which are less than 45 minutes’ journey to Termini train station. Most of the entertainment is in the evening and start times vary, doors normally opening from around 8pm. Whilst not all events are ticketed, club nights will cost €10 and often include a drink on entry. Latin concerts take place in the evening. Dance schools are available for all levels, whilst there are also performances if you wish to just sit back and watch.
If you’re planning to visit Rome during the Fiesta period, then be sure to check the calendar of events. This way you can ensure you know what’s on, tailoring your visit around what you’d like to see. If you’re planning to stay among the action, then accommodation in the region is likely to go quickly, book early to avoid disappointment. Likewise, if there’s a particular concert that takes your fancy see if you need to buy a ticket. Want to take up salsa dancing or maybe just show off your expertise, dance classes for all levels have limited spaces so enquire ahead of your journey and chose what’s right for you.
There are a wide selection of properties including villas, apartments, holiday homes and private rentals to book for your visit. Whether you stay near the venue in the EUR region or elsewhere in the city it is easy to get around Rome on foot or via public transport. Check our accommodation in Rome.
