It is officially summer in Rome. That means outdoor dining, gelato every day and river bars:
For 6 Euro, you can get yourself a plastic cup of beer and take a seat for some serious people watching.
The bars set up near Trastevere, on both sides of the Tiber River. They extend a ways down and are hard to miss. Just walk down the steps located at the bridges and pick a comfy seat.
Many of the bars also serve food, and there are plenty of carnival-like booths if you want to play some games.
A side note for the ladies: Having lived here long enough to be wary, I insisted on knowing about the bathroom situation before agreeing to beers. They’re there. They’re fine. Be ready to pay for toilet paper.
