Rome’s historic center is home to many of its greatest attractions: Piazza Navona, Campo de’ Fiori, the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain. On a visit to the city, you’re likely to spend most of your time wandering down its winding streets, popping into shops and eating a meal at one of its many fabulous restaurants. Wondering where to head pre or post dinner for a drink? Read on to find out where to enjoy the best wine, beer and cocktails in the Eternal City.
Bar del Fico is perhaps the most legendary watering hole in the city. Nestled in intimate Piazza del Fico close to Piazza Navona, both the square and the bar take their name from the fig tree that grows within the piazza. During the day, the tree provides shade for the Italian men who play chess beneath it, while in the evening the bar is swarmed by young and old alike. Bar del Fico is a real punto di riferimento, point of reference, in the city and has a tendency to attract a see-and-be-seen crowd. No visit to Rome is complete without a stop at this beloved bar and piazza.
