Batman in Rome


The fans of the Dark Knight visiting Rome are in luck: they’ll be able to learn more about their hero and at the same time get away from the Roman heat.

Until August 29 a collection of items used during the filming of The Dark Knight Rises will be on display at Piazza dei Ravennati in Ostia, a  beach town located just outside Rome. The exhibition includes a couple of Bat-vehicles, and the costume worn by the new Catwoman, Anne Hathaway– a pice many will find, well, intriguing.
Also in Ostia but in a different location, at Piazza Anco Marzio, a selection photographs taken during the filming of the Nolan Trilogy  will be on exhibition as well.

To reach Ostia from Hotel Des Artistes or Yes Hotel is quite easy and cheap: just take the blue subway line at Castro Pretorio from Des Artistes or at Termini from Yes Hotel and get off at the station Piramide; from there you have trains leaving for Ostia every 20 minutes. Once on the train, get off at the station Lido Centro to reach the exhibitions
