Not every city celebrates its birthday, but Rome does on 21 April each year. It was Romulus, suckled by a she-wolf as an infant, who went on to found the city in 753BC. Romans today celebrate the event with bands on Piazza del Campidoglio and fireworks over the River Tiber. Rome's monuments, archaeological sites and many museums allow free entry on the day.
Main site is Aventine Hill, between the Capitoline Hill and Testaccio district. For fireworks, good viewpoints are Campidoglio (behind Capitoline Museum) and Giardino degli Aranci, near Aventine Hill, Rome, Italy
