Rome’s nightlife starts late…
It is not unusual for locals to meet up for dinner around 9. 30 or even 10. Rome is unique when it comes to nightlife and entertainment. It is different from any other capital in the world, yes there are surely loads of bars, pubs & clubs spread all over the city but the best way to enjoy the culture, vibe and spirit of the city is outdoor.
As the weather is mild here for most part of the year, every square turns often into a big outdoor bar. The locals love their evening ”passeggiata” (slow walk through the old town), strolling around the cobble stoned streets, sipping a beer while chatting with friends
