The Tempest at Aqua Paola
Estate Romana is the best time for nightlife in Rome. Outdoor venues abound with live music and performances. One of the most picturesque locations is the Aqua Paola on the Gianicolo (aka Fontanonestate). Not only is there a fun restaurant and lounge set up right next to the fountain for the summer, but the view of the city from the fountain provides an incredible backdrop for plays and concerts. This Sunday (August 9), Shakespeare's The Tempest is on, with original costumes, music and scenery designed for the occasion. In Italian.
