If you’re looking for contemporary dance through to stage productions, music and film, Rome Europa is a perfect collective to help promote performances around the city. Bringing together all the arts under one umbrella, the Rome Europa Festival has been successfully running since 1986. As of 2016 the festival featured 524 artists across 21 locations, with a number of shows being brought to Italy for the first time. With backing from the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, the festival has been able to expand upon traditional dance and theatre to embrace technology with some more intriguing and experimental art installations.
The nearest airports to Rome are Ciampino and Fiumicino (aka Leonardo da Vinci International Airport), both of which are less than 45 minutes into the city. Once central it is easy to visit the various locations. Ticket prices vary from show to show, although you can purchase through the official website which also provides an update on availability should you wish to make decision at a later date. As for opening times, evening performances tend to start around 9pm, daytime exhibits will depend on the venues opening hours.
Check the calendar of events online and book tickets in advance if you know what you wish to attend. If you’re happy to go with the flow, remember some venues may only have limited capacity and if you’re taking the family there may be some age restrictions. There are package deals available on tickets too, so make the most of your visit and buy a subscription. You can buy 6 shows under one pass, or if you’re staying for a while purchase the “Pass Panorama” to gain access up to 30 shows of your choice. With so much diversity available planning in advance is highly recommended.
