A city that has an undying passion for ‘la dolce vita’, you can create some wonderful memories with a night out in Rome. You should be aware that nightlife in Italy starts quite late though. Pubs and bars don’t usually get busy until midnight, and nightclubs don’t fill up until 2am.

The city’s squares get converted into outdoor bars in the summer, which is perfect for having a few drinks under the stars. If you’re surrounded by locals, you’ll see plenty of them end their night out with a cornetto (breakfast pastry) and a cappuccino. You should only join them in doing this if you have no trouble sleeping!
