1 PARCO SAVELLO

Known to Romans as the Giardino degli Aranci (Orange Garden), this pocket-sized park is a romantic haven with its manicured lawn dotted with fallen oranges. Grab a perch at the small panoramic terrace and watch the sun set over the Tiber. In summer, theatre performances are sometimes staged among the perfumed orange trees (Via di Santa Sabina; 7am–dusk; free).

2 OPERA DI ROMA AT TERME DI CARACALLA

The remnants of Emperor Caracalla’s vast 3rd-century baths complex are among Rome’s most awe-inspiring ruins. Come summer, Rome’s opera company moves here to give spectacular performances staged in the ruins. This year’s season focuses on Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, Turandot and La Bohème (operaroma.it; Viale delle Terme di Caracalla; tickets from £18).
