Isola Tiberina Festival a Magical Summer Event in Rome

The Tibor (Fiume Tevere) river banks, centered around Isolina Tiberina (Tiber Island), transform during the summer in Rome.

Hundreds of little pointed white tents filled with full service restaurants, bars, shops and games.  So many options available along the river – enjoy a simple stroll, go shopping, enjoy an aperitivo or dine at one of the many restaurants.

Tons of eating & drinking choices – take-away, mexican, greek, seafood, italian (of course 😉 ), sit-down dinners, aperitivi ….

Highlights:

  • It’s unique and limited to only the summer
  • It’s centrally located, between Trastevere, the center of Rome and the Vatican
  • Incredible buzz!
  • NO CARS – this is such a pleasure!  Not having scooters & cars whizzing by you as it is in the rest of Rome
  • Open all day, though my preference is to go once the sun sets
  • Open Air Cinema on the island
  • International food & drinks
