Impressions of Rome

The 'Eternal City' is an unexpectedly small (read: walkable) city, packed with historical landmarks, art and dolce vita.

APERITIVO

Aperitivo is one of my favorite thing in the world, and it is quite common in Rome. It is basically some kind of after work/ happy hour event, that takes place ever day in most bars. It means that if you order a drink, it comes with a snack, that can come in many shapes. Some bars have a kind of buffet, some offer fried snacks, some have a salad bar... they are all worth trying, and I am giving my best to eat and drink my way through Rome!

The concept is appealing to everyone, so if you are on a budget, you can get a meal at the price of a beer, or you can just take the occasion and get drunk before the sun goes down.

I myself haven't figured out how to have dinner after a proper aperitivo? If you have an idea, let me know!
