Bars & NightlifePablo Debat/Shutterstock.com
The Romans love to meet over aperitivo around 7:30 pm, after which they either go to a restaurant or home for dinner. The drinks need not be alcoholic. Many bars serve light snacks that are included in the price.
After 11 pm most of those looking to party head over to the Testaccio area. Named after the mountain of discarded amphoras, the area is home to many establishments, ranging from small piano bars to equally small discos. Make sure you take at least a night out to experience the bar and club scene in Rome.
