Just like the saying goes, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. In the evenings, the squares called “piazzas” fill with street performers. University students and the working class meet up for one of Italy’s most honored traditions: aperitivo. Meaning to “open the appetite,” an aperitivo presents the time to share with friends a pre-dinner drink that often includes a free happy hour buffet of artisanal meats, cheeses, olives, wine and other regional nibbles. With so many Hostarias (restaurants with traditional foods), cosy “enoteca” wine bars, cool spots for a cocktail, the possibilities are endless when in Piazza Navona or near the Pantheon (temple dedicated to Roman Gods) and their neighboring quarters.
Tip: An aperitivo is even more splendid on a rooftop with incredible views of the Eternal City coming alive as the sunset tints the sky with pink.
