Buon compleanno Roma! If you’re traveling to Rome in April, you just might get the opportunity to celebrate the birth of Rome! Built in 753 BC, the majestic history of Rome is honored each year on April 21st with grand feasts, parades, fireworks, and gladiator events (mock, of course). The people of Rome illuminate Aventine Hill with torches, creating a magical and inspiring experience. If you can’t make it this trip, don’t worry! Birthdays come every year (unfortunately).
