There are lots of cheap and free things to do around Rome. You just have to know where to look. Take a night out at the theater or the cinema for example. Between the tickets and food at the concession stand, it can turn out to be one expensive date! Lucky for you, we’re going to let you in on some little secrets that will allow you to enjoy doing the things you love to do for less!

Last-minute Theater

Spending the night at the theater in Rome doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. Folks with wallets all shapes and sizes can snag a ticket discounted as much as 50% from the Last Minute Theater Box Office. Though, discounted tickets are only available Tuesday through Saturday, it’s still a great way to spend the evening and less. That means more money for ice creams! Log onto the website for information on what seats are available at the discounted price on that given day for the play or musical you want to see. Make sure to change the page in English, in order to navigate the site easier.
