The Rome Cavalieri is famous for its themed parties and dinners, which bring a sense of fun to any occasion. All are conceived on a theatrical scale, with sets, costumes, decorated backdrops and performers combining to transport the guests to another Rome, where fantasy and make-believe inspire evenings of entertainment and hilarity.
- Toga Party
- Chalet in the Park
- Regional Italian Cocktail
The scene is set with backdrops of replica Roman arches and painted scenery of the Forum, the Coliseum and picturesque corners of Rome. Statues, columns, busts of emperors and royal eagles complete the illusion of the ancient city while the tables are laid with red and gold cloth decorated with classical motifs and cornucopia centre pieces. Guests dress in Roman togas and sandals, crowns and laurels, all provided by the Hotel. The evening begins with the famous cinema scenes of the chariot race from Ben Hur followed by the arrival of Caesar and Cleopatra in a real chariot drawn by two horses and flanked by six legionnaires. Dinner is a lavish banquet Roman style, while a musical troupe plays traditional Italian tunes. To enliven the evening further we can arrange for fire eaters, jugglers and clarions, as well as combat with four gladiators.
The time is the 18th Century and the scene is the boisterous streets of Trastevere. Our evening is named after a typical Roman character, familiar from masked plays. Rugantino is a swaggering but charming youth, a figure of fun whose arrogant manner belies a laughable cowardice. Among the candlelit tables with red and white chequered cloths are stalls of fish, vegetables, flowers and wine. Dressed in the costume of the period, the waiters are jovial characters egging the guests on to drink, to sing or to dance. The evening can be further enlivened with games and music, with strolling minstrels, jugglers, arm wrestlers, fortune tellers and card tricksters. It all adds up to a hilarious evening of traditional Roman fun.
Set in the midst of our 15-acre Mediterranean gardens, the Chalet is a fully equipped barbeque area where outdoor parties can be arranged for groups of all sizes. The warmth of a summer evening, the views of Rome, and the aroma of the barbeque, combine to create a very special atmosphere altogether. Parties can be arranged to coincide with major sporting events, which can be viewed live on large screens.
An evening of regional delicacies where six bar stations are laid out to offer the very best wine and food from Tuscany, Campania, Sicily, Veneto, Abruzzo and Lazio. In the warm summer months, the stalls are set up in the Hotel’s Mediterranean gardens allowing guests to stroll the winding paths from one stall to another while enjoying the views of Rome.
