English Language Movies in Rome

English Language Movies in Rome

The number of expats in Rome is so high that they need constant source of entertainment as to not feel left out from the current cultural scene - it’s only obvious.

So most cinema circuits in Rome routinely include showings in English for the most anticipated movies of the season. You won’t be able to see every single title coming out, that is, but if you’re after a blockbuster or a very well received new opening, chances are you can see it with your kids right in the city!

Classical music for children at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia

Classical music for children at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia

This residential, quiet area in Northern Rome includes the (now repurposed) Villaggio Olimpico, the athletes’ village from the Rome Olympics in 1960, and it’s a destination for lovers of contemporary architecture thanks to the nearby Bridge of Music and the adjoined Maxxi Museum, designed by the late Zaha Hadid.

At the Auditorium Parco della Musica, made by archistar Renzo Piano, you will not only find pop, rock or jazz events, as well as exhibitions and film festivals.

Here is where the headquarters for Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia (the National Academy of St. Cecilia) are: their Orchestra and Choir are among the most famous in the world, and they have been at the forefront for events intended to bring children closer to classical music.

Young archaelogists have their fun at Museo di Archeologia per Roma

Come and join a “how to” workshop (in recent times “How to build a Roman road” was extremely successful), and don’t think this is a children-only museum: parents and adults enjoy the APR as much as them (if not more!).

Inquire with the museum offices for assistance in English or other languages and for the possibility of a step-free access.

Moving about in Rome: segways, rickshaws, overboards...

Reputable companies throughout the city offer rickshaws, bikes, or overboards for rent. Be advised that the new mayor just banned unlicensed rickshaws from operating, so always choose agencies and companies that offer these services, don’t just drop Euro notes to the first unknown approaching you near a tourist site!

Also: there’s a variety of “moving tours” available, from vespa rides of the city to segway tours: google them up and choose carefully, and consider that most alleys in the center of the city are closed off to mopeds, or have cobblestones and could be unconfortable for you and your kids.

You could also go the “carrozzelle” way: a more expensive tour of the main monuments done on a traditional small horse-carriage, the way most Romans used to go about before the cars invaded the Eternal City! Other options include renting bikes and horses - we reccomend both for exploring greener areas such as some of the parks in Rome or the beautiful Appian Way, just South of the city walls: an ancient Roman road, still in use today!
