Everyone knows, that Rome in august is full of foreign people, cos that's the time when most of the Romans are on vacation, and there is a start date for that, 15th of August officially every single year Ferragosto!

Assumption Day is an national Italian holiday, many businesses and shops closes in this date, but not everyone goes on holidays, you cannot just shut off the city, all the major tourist sites shops are more likely to be some open, but you will see mostly tourists on the streets, the public transport in this month is rare and slow, otherwise Rome is very enjoyable.

Many Italians head to the beach for Ferragosto, so the coast are usually very crowded while the cities may be fairly empty, mostly all Italians have their holidays 2 to 3 weeks starting from Ferragosto, however you might pop up on closed restaurant and bar doors with written Chiuso per Ferie (Closed for Holidays). Main discos and beach parties are closed, everyone is in Ibiza or Sardegna, which are the most popular destinations for the vacation in Italian Style.

Hundreds of pizzerias , trattorias, restaurants and gelaterias, so relax and do as Romans do, and believe me you will have the best time of your life, there is nothing more Roman, than sitting at dinner table covered with grilled fresh vegetables with a touch of fresh extra virgin olive oil, tasty pizza and the best bowl of pasta, good wine, great company ...and your best date ever, Rome, enjoy this glorious city fully!
