Rome hotels

Rome may be a serious, historical showpiece by day, but at night it becomes one of Europe's most popular music and dance capitals. Live music, concerts and Dj's pump out varied styles of music to suit not only the young, trendy set, but most age groups and nationalities will be entertained as well.

Remember when in Rome...Roman's start late and finish early, early morning that is. Concerts and live bands don't kick off to about 11pm and most clubs stay open until 4am, and this goes on most nights of the week.

Rome also has a vibrant, gay nightlife, with gay clubs and pubs operating in most districts in Rome.
