Boys Day in Rome 16th of June

Hello all!

As part of a European trip that my wife her sister and my brother in law are taking through June and July, We will be spending a week in Rome ( and can't wait!!) On the 16th of June the girls will be doing an all day cooking class and as such my brother in law and I will have a spare day.

Looking for ideas for two lads to get up to? Ideally this would mean going to a soccer game/ horse racing/ or maybe just a cool bar for the afternoon? Any thoughts?

Hard to say without knowing what you both actually like to do - you can probably search online for any games you might want to see.

Such as this, for example that I came across googling "sports events in rome italy"


I'm sure there are many more that will help you guys out. And, probably someone here will chime in as well with some ideas but it is a bit tough not knowing what your interests are -

Thanks for that, I suppose it is hard to answer everything that might interest us.

We like good Wine, and Great food, so some where good to sit and do some people watching might be a good option

If you want to do some people watching, just keep an eye out for a well situated cafe as you wander about doing your sightseeing. Be sure to write down the name and the location - whatever street, across from... near whatever cross street...so you can find the place again.

This is the Web site of the horse track:


There's nothing on the program for June 16 at the moment, but once you get to Rome, the tourist information offices should be able to tell you whether there's something on or not.

Be aware that people watching at cafes on famous squares - e.g., Piazza Navona - comes at higher prices than at ordinary cafes. In either case, you'll pay more if you sit down.

Boys' toys?

The Italian airforce has a nice museum with a collection of thirties' seaplanes and other aircraft, on the shore of Lake Bracciano.


Afterwards, you might try the lake fish they serve in the town's restaurants, before taking the train back to Rome?
