Tour the Colosseum

These tours are top-rated and sell out quickly. It’s typically only possible to visit at night during the warmer months. Note that the Roman Forum is closed at night.

To avoid the crowds, consider swinging by to toss your coin in at night. Use your right hand to throw the coin over your left shoulder!

Visit the Trevi Fountain

Skip the high temperatures and the crowds!  These tours are typically only offered during warmer months. It's a great way to see the Sistine Chapel!

Tour the Vatican Museums at night

One of the most popular options is to explore the hip Trastevere neighborhood.

Go on a Rome food tour

Discover important sites in Rome like the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and Castel Sant’Angelo.

Take a Rome night walking tour

Rooftop bars and restaurants like Ristorante Aroma at Palazzo Manfredi, Mater Terrae at Hotel Raphael, and Hotel Forum Restaurant are all great options. 

Have dinner at a rooftop restaurant

The Court is a cocktail bar at Palazzo Manfredi hotel directly across from the Colosseum! Remember to make a reservation.

Enjoy a cocktail with a view

Roman gelaterias (gelato shops) are still open at night–some stores don’t even close until 2 in the morning! Don't miss Frigidarium, Come il Latte, or Old Bridge.
