The Art of Aperitivo with In-List Rooftop Bar Sunset

Embark on an evening in Rome as we discover the best local spots to enjoy the Italian pre-dinner ritual of aperitivo. As we sip on aperitifs and savor stuzzichini (Italian snacks), I'll share stories about Rome's local neighborhoods.

We'll visit 2 spots for aperitivo, as well as an in-list rooftop bar. Escape the tourist traps of Rome to join me for an evening exploring charming neighborhoods, chatting with locals, and wandering Rome's historic streets. All the while, stopping for sips and bites along the way.

Cap off the evening at one of the Eternal City's most exclusive rooftop bars to enjoy the sunset, panoramic city views, all in great company.
