Explore Arts and Entertainment in Rome
Rome and culture go hand in hand. From music to theater to art to cinema, this sprawling metropolis has left its footprint on the world. The city is home to the Parco della Musica, one of the largest musical venues in the world. The Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, one of the oldest musical institutions in the world, is based at the Parco della Musica.
Opened by Benito Mussolini in 1937, Cinecittà Studios is the largest filmmaking facility in Europe and has produced some of the world’s most-renowned movies, such as “Ben Hur,” “Cleopatra” and “La Dolce Vita.” Although tours aren’t open to the public, sneak by the studio to see where more than 3,000 films have been made (84 of them Oscar winners). For a truly memorable evening, attend an opera at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma or visit Teatro Sistina if an energetic musical is more your style. Entertainment is plentiful in Rome, and you’ll be enchanted with its endless possibilities.
