Nowhere does the Italian tradition of pre-dinner aperitivo better than Rome, its capital city and a food-lover’s paradise. Want to see what all the fuss is about? Join a local guide in Rome for a virtual aperitivo date in the Testaccio area, where buzzing bars are crowded with locals every night of the week.
You’ll be taken on a quick tour of Testaccio, with your guide pointing out some of the most popular aperitivo spots. There’s Ch1887, tucked away on the second floor of a century-old restaurant, and Enoteca Giansanti, a family-run foodie hotspot run by a local sommelier. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll get a front-row seat to Roman aperitivo.
Your host will duck into one of the bars and pile up a plate of typical snacks, telling you a little more about each type of food and the variety of drinks available. Learn what the locals eat and drink, and find out more about this enviable tradition.
