cavalieri di malta

Rome seen from the Knights of Malta on the Aventine Hill. Countless monuments on the skyline...
How many can you spot?

monte della farina

The Antica Vineria di via Monte della Farina, at number 37 of the namesake street (Tel. +39 06 688 06989) is more like a small town wine shop than a trendy aperitivo spot, with old men sipping their vino at the counter, and spilled by a spigot in the wall; and loyal guests ambling in regularly come 6 p.m. every day for their glass of Frascati. The functioning '50s fridge, the relaxed ambience and partners Marco and Giancarlo pouring glasses for their aficionado clientele, make this true Roman hang-out a must see.
