The city of Rome has a history that extends back thousands of years. Tourists today will find that Rome offers just as many attractions as night as it does during the day.
Rome at Night
One of the great things about visiting Rome is that many attractions are even prettier at night. Lots of famous fountains are lit up to invite visitors to see the beautiful details. For example, a visit to the world famous Spanish Steps is a great way to see the intricate marble under bright lights.
Those who want to sit and poeople-watch will find it just as fun at night to see others from places such as the Piazza Santa Maria, the Plaza Navona, and the Campo dei Fiori.
If visiting during the summer, take advantage of a program called Cinema all’Aperto (or cinema under the sky). Each district in Rome allows you to see two movies in the public square for a small fee.
Pubs all over Rome offer both food and drinks as well as the opportunity to meet many locals. Consider looking for official organized pub crawls that allow visitors the chance to see several pubs in a single night during a single tour.
For about 20 Euros each, you can expect to visit multiple pubs, sample a few drinks, and meet others in a congenial setting. Many pubs start outside a specific location such as the Colosseum and then take travelers across some of the most famous attractions in Rome. Visitors can also expect live music and dancing as well as the chance to visit some of Rome’s most popular night spots.
