5 Things To Do in Rome At Night

5 Things To Do in Rome At Night
September 25
08:00 2015

In a city filled with so much rich history and decadence, you could easily spend your nights in Rome doing something different every evening. Though to make your decision-making process easier, here is an eclectic list of activities that will last you 5 fulfilling nights, taking you through some of Rome’s most beautiful sites and neighbourhoods.

Trevi Fountain

Located in the Trevi district of Rome, created in 1762, the Trevi Fountain has been an attraction for almost all visitors since the 18th century. Tradition holds that if you throw a coin into the fountain you’ll return to Rome. Originally built for ancient Roman aqueducts to supply water into bath houses and into the city, the fountain is now a favourite for many—serving as a symbol of the extraordinary work of Italian art masterpieces. Lighted up at night, you can easily spend an entire evening with your date, significant other or friends, with a bottle of wine and enjoy the atmosphere. Plus walking down the winding streets leading up to it are breathtaking. Avoid the crowds by visiting the Trevi Fountain at night.


Spanish Steps

Directly in the middle of the historic centre of Rome, you have the Spanish steps that you can climb taking you between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti at the top. A place where many artists, painters, and poets have been attracted to over the years and continues to attract many who love to people-watch. Whether it’s your first time visiting the eternal city of Rome or your 10th time, visiting the Spanish Steps at night is a must. There’s always something new to see each night.

Authentic Italian Cooking Class

To experience Roman food like a real Italian, one must roll up their sleeves and learn from a seasoned chef. Someone like your grandma, or Nonna in this case. You can spend your evening learning how to cook your very own authentic Roman dinner including specialities such as homemade pasta and an original Italian dessert. Eating Italy Food Tours provides this full four and a half hour cooking experience where you make four Italian courses. Sometimes the best travel memory is actually a taste, not a tourist site!

Aperitivo Hour

When you don’t know what to do before having dinner in Rome, the Italians already have the answer for you: have a drink or two with some finger food before your full meal. Similar to tapas in Spain, you are traditionally eating a bowl of nuts or crisps accompanied by some fat green olives alongside your beverage. Start your night with one of the classic Italian aperitivo options such as a spritz, Punt e Mes on the rocks, or a Negroni. Check with your local aperitivo bar, but the time generally ranges from 6pm – 9pm. Go early because sometimes by 7pm most bars are already emptying out.


Trastevere Neighborhood

By far one of the most magical and charming neighbourhoods in Rome, you’re bound to fall quickly in love with Trastevere. There is a little bit of something for everyone here – squared plazas filled with artists playing live music, restaurants with outdoor seating and colourful lush buildings. Trastevere at night is alive with energy and a stroll through its many alleyways and around the Tiber River is the perfect way to spend a night exploring Rome.
