Where To Go At Night In Rome
Rome is famous for its historical landmarks, ornate fountains and artistic culture, with huge numbers of tourists visiting year after year. At Holiday Extras, we provide airport transfers to all the major destinations, allowing you to get to where you want to go stress free.
As a major European capital, Rome has a vibrant nightlife; read on to find out our top recommendations for what to do after daylight hours.
Go on a night tour
A lot of the historical landmarks in the city are lit up at night, with sights such as the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain arguably even more spectacular when illuminated. You can buy tickets for a guided tour, or simply do some independent exploring.
See a show
Whatever music you're into, you'll find a concert in Rome to pique your interest, from classical to pop. The Teatro dell'Opera offers a range of operas, ballets and other shows, and if you visit in summer then you might have a chance to see a concert at the Baths of Caracalla, one of the most historic landmarks in the city.
Watch a match
Italians are known for their passion for football, and there's no better way to experience the buzzing local atmosphere than under the floodlights at a Serie A game. Both AS Roma and SS Lazio play their home games at the Olympic Stadium, so there's every chance your visit will coincide with a match.
Enjoy a dinner cruise
The River Tiber flows through the centre of Rome, passing a number of ancient sights such as St Peter's Basilica and Castel Sant Angelo. A great way to experience them is when they're lit up at night, and many tour companies will offer cruises down the river combined with a full-course meal.
Have an aperitivo
The tradition of meeting for a drink after work is particularly strong in Rome, with the classic Roman aperitivo being a white wine spritz, Campari or Aperol and sparkling water. Accompanied with some tapas-style snacks, it's the perfect start to an evening in the capital.
