A privately led Italian cocktail tasting in Rome.
The traditional Northern Italian aperitivo trend has found fertile ground in Rome.
Quite a bit of ink has been spilled recently regarding how the cocktail scene has improved in the Eternal City. And while until recently it was largely dominated by 5-star hotel bars, an increasing number of quality lounges and wine bars is enriching the city’s pre-dinner drinks offer.
Aperitivo is how Italians normally relax post-office and how they work up an appetite before a meal during a glorious couple of hours – generally between 7 and 9 pm – with a glass of wine or a cocktail, sipped alongside small plates of food like crostini, brined olives, chips, taralli, bruschetta and other savory snacks.
What could be more evocative of the Dolce Vita than imbibing on a Rome rooftop under an open sky or under a shaded pergola, steeped in the history of one of the world’s greatest cities?

We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!Poland221USA
