When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Join the aperitif culture in Rome. Aperitif refers to an alcoholic drink taken before dinner to stimulate appetite, but in Italian culture it has taken on a different meaning. For the price of a drink (around €5), one not only gets a drink, but allowance to fill a plate of tasty eats free of charge. Typically you will find sandwiches, cold pastas and finger foods. This is a great way to experience some Roman cuisine without breaking the bank. Check out Société Lutèce at Piazza Monte Vecchio (near Piazza Navona) and Pepato at Via del Politeama for a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and share an inexpensive dinner with them.
