Rome’s 2017 New Year’s Day Parade was a spectacular and hugely successful event. Tens of thousands of spectators packed the parade route along Via del Corso, Via dei Condotti, Piazza di Spagna, Via del Babuino, Via Ripetta and the magnificent square, that is the heart of Rome, Piazza del Popolo. The crowds were thrilled with the unique performances of brilliant marching bands from the United States and Italy, and were delighted by the stunning majorettes, street performers and characters in historic Roman costumes.
