Rome Music Tours
Perform music concerts in piazzas and churches in and around Rome
We have a variety of venues in Rome and around to cater for all types of music group.
Our groups love to stay in a 4* hotel on the coast where they can relax by the pool or on the beach when they are not busy visiting all the exciting sights on offer in and around Rome. But it is also possible to organise accommodation in Rome itself for any group who would prefer.
Our most popular hotel is in Anzio, which is famous for the Anzio Landings in WW2 and is still a busy fishing town. Concerts for all types of group can take place in the main square or on the beach in front of the ruins of emperor Nero’s villa, or in the church/piazza of pretty Nettuno, nearby.
We recommend a concert in Rome itself at the Teatro di Marcello for secular music groups and participation in a Mass at St Peter’s and Santa Maria Maggiore for choirs. There are also various venues between Anzio and Rome in the hills of the Castelli Romani. In Frascati, for example, or the Pope’s summer residence, Castel Gandolfo.

Music performance venues in and around Rome
Rome and the hill towns and coastal towns nearby indulge us with an enormous variety of venues that cannot fail to delight all of our groups. Whether it be singing in perhaps the most famous church in the world or performing in an atmospheric, intimate concert series in a local piazza, the experience will be unforgettable.
Rome is full of spectacular churches where the best way to perform is to take part in a well attended Mass. However it probably goes without saying that none can hold a candle to St Peter's, Italy's largest, richest and most spectacular basilica. One of the added benefits of singing here is that queues to enter can be avoided!
St Peter’s Basilica, Rome
Probably the most important church in the world
Atmospheric, dramatically lit concerts take place amongst the ruins of this ancient Roman theatre during the warmer months of the year. All kinds of music groups perform. These concerts are part of a series of concerts and are attended by regular music lovers. During the winter months concerts move into the nearby church.
Teatro Marcello, Rome
The ancient open air theatre in central Rome
Nettuno is a pretty town on the coast just next to Anzio. There is a medieval church and lovely square in the centre where concerts take place. Occasionally in the summer there is also a stage in front of the Borgia Castle. The organisers and audience in Nettuno are always very enthusiastic. Concerts in smaller towns are often the most successful.

Excursions and Trips in and around Rome
As with all areas of Italy, the choice of excursions in and around Rome are endless. It would take a lifetime to exhaust interesting places to visit in Rome itself, let alone in the area surrounding it! There are ancient monuments and cities, churches galore, hill towns, beaches, volcanic lakes, vineyards and even a water park for those that would like a bit of frivolity!
Walking tour of Rome that can vary according to the time available. Typically it would include St Peter’s Square, bridge with view of Castel Sant’ Angelo, to Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Forum, Colosseum.
A visit inside St. Peter’s and the Sistine Chapel can be organised but, due to possible queues, this might be something that adults would choose to do on an individual basis or groups might like to pay for a “skip the line” tour.
Learn the history behind this magnificent monument and all that surrounds it with an in depth tour. More expensive “skip the line” tours can also be arranged.
