There's a shisha bar near S. Maria in Trastevere and a bar nearby with a foosball table that rocks. Both places are receptive to Americans (although the Shisha bar has extremely slow service). Also if you like movies but don't understand Italian the Pasquino theater on Vicolo a piedi shows English language films. The Sunday Morning flea market rocks to get all sorts of good, cheap things.

We went to Campo di Fiore almost everynight. Lots of kids from the university would go over there, so you would meet up with other people. Some good places were Sloppy Sams and the Drunken Ship. The GrottaPinta was also a great after house place and Kaos etc. So many places to go to! A lot of the resident students and younger workers at the university would take us out. Definitely go on the Pub crawls, you go to so many places, and meet so many people!

When I was there in 2001, I liked Goa on Thursdays(Gianni--Patrizio!) The now de-funct club Exotica. Best times were with everyone at the Elephant Pub though in Trastevere. I've been back to Rome since then and I recommend Suburbia and Muccasassina. There are a lot of cool wine bars near Piazza Navona. Stay out of Campo Dei Fiori--it sucks and is filled with tourists who think they are on Girls Gone Wild. Best pizza is Frontoni's in Trastevere!

Testaccio is a great place to really mesh with Italian nightlife. Go to the museums, the historical sites, travel anywhere your interested. It isn't difficult to find some cheap air flights. If you can be there for Notte Bianche, do it! Expect huge crowds though.

I loved Campo di Fiori - Drunkin Ship and Sloppy Sams!! Also, Trinity College Pub by Via Vento. The first time I drove past the Vatican and St. Peter's at night I burst into tears, it was so beautiful. The small restaurants were the best - intimate, amazing food, and affordable. I lived in Monteverde, which was amazing because you werent overwhelmed with tourists. I love Rome!

Rome is full of things to do in both day and night. Many of the clubs around the Testacchio area are really nice. A lot of actors and models sometimes show up there. Best cafes... I'd say make it personal. Get to know certain bars and meet the people that work there.. You'll come to find out that the personalities come forward as you frequent certain places.
