Winter Hasn’t Arrived Yet But A Permanent Ice-skating Rink Has!

A permanent ice skating rink is now available to Romans and tourists in downtown Rome, in Piazza Mancini.

After years of forced out-of-town trips to the ice skating facilities of Mentana and Marino, finally Rome got her own rink.

Axel is 3,000 sq meters covered structure with an Olympic-size track open daily  from 10 am to midnight, with 2-hour skating shifts. It has a restaurant, a specialized shop and a fitness space accommodating dance lessons and a gym. It also offers ice skating classes. If you don’t have your own ice skates you can rent them on the spot.

If you’re craving for cold temperatures and an alternative way to work out, Axel is the place!
