Things to do in Rome in June 2024

Republic Day – June 2nd

This year Italy celebrates the 78th anniversary of its Republic.

Every June 2nd, in the morning, the Italian President holds a ceremony at the Vittoriano (Altar of the Fatherland) by placing a crown of laurel to the unknown soldier, who represents all the Italian soldiers who lost their lives during WWI.

That’s when the Frecce Tricolore make their first flight. The acrobatic fleet of military aircrafts flies on top of the Vittoriano right when the president lays the crown of leaves on the altar! Being there in person is quite a sensation.

Then the parade of the armed forces starts marching from the Colosseum, along via dei Fori Imperiali and to Piazza Venezia.

You can spot the Frecce Tricolore from any high viewpoint of the city (eg. Gianicolo hill, Pincio hill). For closer views, go to Piazza Venezia or by the Colosseum. Consider that many streets will be closed during that day, so try to be there in advance.

Last year the Frecce Tricolore flew at 9:15AM (start of the ceremony) and then again at 12:00PM (end of the ceremony).

Cinema in Piazza – outdoor cinema every night at 9:15PM

Free entrance, no booking necessary. All the movies start at 9:15PM. Movies will be in original language with Italian subtitles. In case of Italian movies there will be English subtitles.
