In this post we wanted to give you some suggestions on Halloween events tonight in Rome, Florence and Perugia.


At Garbatella neighborhood, citizens and store owners have decided to organized an Halloween's Festival, both for children and adults. From 4 pm to late night, streets as Circonvallazione Ostiense, via Leopoldo Traversi, via Carlo Citerni, via Giuseppe Candeo, via Pietro Felter and others will be decorated with ghostly scenarios, and people will be entertained by local artists with magic tricks and shows. There is even a Harry Potter tunnel, to relive the magical atmosphere of the famous world Roman amusement park of Cinecittà World: horror cine tours, roller-coasters and special shows invaded by zombies, witches and monstrous creatures who walks around the park and scare the visitors when they least expect it. Don't miss the chance to take a tour in the scariest park of Rome and then, after 9 pm, enjoy a live concert with your friends and dance under the stars.


The Tre Passi per Firenze association have decided to organized a digital Scavenger Hunt for adult, around the Mercato Centrale Square. With the use of your smartphone you will walk around the neighborhood and discover all ghoulish stories and legends set in Florence.


There you will find spooky parties and decorations around the city center and in restaurants and pubs. But the real event will actually start tomorrow, the 1st of November: La Fiera dei Morti di Perugia (Festival of the Dead in Perugia) For five days the city will be hosting a huge open-air market, with stands selling every kinds of product: from clothing to home furniture, from craft works to typical food of Perugia and other Italian cities.
