The Tree Bar – buzzing little local bar
A beautiful bar situated right in the middle of a leafy green vista. Only a few stops on the tram from Piazzale Flaminio and the Centre of Rome.

Another amazing hangout in Rome is the Hotel Locarno

Another Great Rooftop Bar is at La Rinascente
It’s a secret among locals. This is a great rooftop bar which is nestled away at the top of a shiny and department store called La Rinascente. Located close to the hustle and bustle of the city center as, as well as near one of the most famous attractions: The Trevi Fountain.

Save the best for last…. Bar del Fico
Although it lies only a few steps away from Piazza Navona, Bar del Fico is one of the locals’ favorite spots to enjoy a drink or coffee at any time throughout the day. During the day, it is a Roman bar filled with both distinguished men playing chess, as well as hipsters on their laptops. When the sun goes down, this place becomes a popular cocktail bar where people gather to have drinks and sit outside to “see and be seen”! Normally there are lively crowds and radio-friendly tunes which make it a trendy location in a very tourist-heavy area.

Ponte Milvio -a place close to my heart
Ponte Milvio is another great hangout place for all ages. The bridge is over the Tiber in northern Rome. This bridge is known for it’s strategic location during the Roman Empire, as well as it was the site of the famous Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312, led by the ruler Constantine. Ponte Milvio also has a variety of bars and restaurants. This bridge was also known for it’s Love Locks, which caused a lamppost to fall over in 2007, due to the weight of the padlocks that were attached. The classical Roman atmosphere and the views across one of Rome’s oldest bridges are enough to bring you to the north of the city center.
There are so many more gorgeous bars and hangouts in Rome, just walking around you can discover so much! Enjoy this remarkable city.
