Rome after dark- could you think of anything more exciting? Neither could we. Don your party pants (or jeans and sneakers- depending on what your plans are for the night) and join one of our local Rome hosts to experience the city's lively energy after the sunsets.

We all have our own idea of what the perfect evening entails- whether that means partying up a storm or choosing something a little more low-key. And if you are not sure exactly what to do we can make a few recommendations.

Why not kick things off Roman style with Aperitivo at twilight before hitting the cobbled streets under moonlight. What next? Well, you know the awe-inspiring Colosseum but have you ever explored this magnificent landmark after dark, when it is light up again the night sky? Incredible stuff.

That is not everyone's vibe though and you have tons of other options. You could take a dinner cruise along the River Tiber and admire the twinkling city of Rome along the way, bar hop through a charming neighborhood or explore the Testaccio Market where you can wander through a maze of stall and be treated to live music.

And if you are a party animal why not follow your host through the Via di Monte Testaccio, which circles a mound of broken oil jars that were discarded by the ancient Romans.

Here you will find some of the next clubs around. There is never a dull moment in Rome and the city sure knows how to deliver once the sun has set. So, whatever you’re looking for from your night in The Eternal City, your host is here to make it happen. 

  • Join one of our passionate hosts to discover just how diverse and unique Rome nightlife is-from partying up a storm to exploring seeing the Fountains of Rome- the choice is yours

  • Explore the awe-inspiring Colosseum after dark, when it is light up again the night sky (incredible stuff!)

  • Explore the Testaccio Market, where you can wander through a maze of stall and be treated to live music

  • Follow your host through the Via di Monte Testaccio, which circles a mound of broken oil jars that were discarded by the ancient Romans and where you'll find the best clubs

Reviews for Rome

Tour of Rome

We had a great walking tour of Rome with Gerry. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke very understandable English. He determined the sites to visit as we didn't have anything special we wanted to see. He took us to very outstanding places and we saw things that we hadn't seen during our previous 2 days of touring Rome. I highly recommend using him as a guide to the city.

Wine tasting

Gerry found an expert sommelier Umberto, with his own "enoteca" loaded with hundreds of bottles of wine. We were given 3 white and 3 red wines to try with nibbles and masses of background info. On the grape, the method and the bottlers. Umberto was very informative and our day was enjoyable.

Amazing for Solo Travellers

As a solo traveller, I booked quite a few tours through City Unscripted not knowing quite what to expect. I had an amazing time on all my tours. In Rome, I met Varshit, not born in Rome but had lived there for 18 months. Varshit messaged me a few days in advance on Whatsapp letting me know where we were meeting and what he had planned. It all went perfectly - we met at a cafe for a quick espresso hit and then headed out into the city. It was actually wonderful to have Varshit who knew about the history and the local area, but could also talk to me about what it was like to be in Rome as a foreigner. Being on my own, Varshit and I covered so much territory. Even better, Varshit brought his GoPro and took heaps of photos of me in all the main attractions and then sent them to me on Google Drive. A perfect trip!
