Home » A Night Out in Rome

What comes to mind when you think of Rome? Culture, museums, gelato? Sure, Rome is all this, but it is so much more. Read the article and take a journey with me in the best parts of the city where you can enjoy a night out in Rome in true Roman style!


Enjoy Rome Like the Locals

When you visit Rome, you’ll certainly want to see the ColosseumPalatine Hill, the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, and other popular attractions. But after that, why don’t you spend a night out in Trastevere having an aperitif, as recommended by the best tourist guides of Rome?

Another place to enjoy Rome’s night life is the Pigneto District, not too far from Termini Station, where you can have an aperitif in true Roman style.

Pigneto’s become a hot spot for the Romans, far from the madness that can be found near the most popular tourist attractions. This district has the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a spritz, a mojito, a beer or a glass of wine in company with friends.

As a student, for me the area of Pigneto offers a unique experience. I can go out to eat and drink with my friends, without spending a fortune. The area is in fact full of restaurants and pubs where you can enjoy your night out at affordable prices. You can experience the “real Rome” and enjoy the city’s night life like the locals do.

In the Pigento, you can often find people sitting at the tables of its numerous restaurants and bars. They’re chilling out after a long day of work or study, and enjoying a beautiful night with their friends or partner. There are couples having a meal together with a nice glass of wine in their hands, laughing and enjoying their night out. There are also street vendors, trying to sell roses or jewelry to the people passing by.

The nightlife goes on until late in the night or early in the morning, depending on your point of view! From Monday to Thursday pubs close around midnight, but during the weekends they stay open until 2 am, so that people can enjoy their night out.

According to the locals, Pigneto is an old district that survived the bombings during World War II, between 1943 and 1944. It has beautiful small houses and, for quite some time, has been a gathering place for the students of the Sapienza University of Rome. But this enchanting district attracts not only students, but also all those who want to take their minds off their every day life, either having an aperitif or simply enjoying the charm of the Roman vias.


Getting There

You can easily reach the Pigneto district by taking the C underground line or “little yellow train” from Termini – precisely from via Giolitti – and stop at Alessi. You can also decide to take the bus no. 50 from Piazza dei Cinquecento (from Termini) and stop at Alessi.

The ticket for the public means of transport costs €1.50 and is valid for 100 minutes. Remember that the public transportation service stops working at 11.30 pm from Sunday to Thursday and at 1.00 am on Fridays and Saturdays.

You can also take a taxi from Termini to Pigneto, but it’s a little more expensive at about € 10-15.

Pigneto is the perfect place for your next visit to the Eternal Cityso book a stay in Rome and enjoy a night out in true Roman style. Believe me, you won’t regret it!
