Ferragosto is a public holiday celebrated on August 15th, which originates from Feriae Augusti, the festival of emperor Augustus. This holiday technically runs from August 15th to September 1st; during this time, you can expect many restaurants and establishments to close. This isn’t said to discourage you, but for you to understand why some of the establishments won’t be open.
Tourist Sites will Stay Open
If you’re in a tourist area, you won’t need to worry about many establishments closing. These areas usually stay open due to the demand from tourism. This is especially true with important tourist attractions, such as Rome’s colosseum and major museums.

Since many families take this time off, many of them head to the beach! That’s why you can expect the beaches to be crowded during August. If you’re looking to get away from the crowd, you should try going more inland.
