This place was an excellent founding to escape the avalanche of tourists. Very cozy and with delicious food. If your girlfriend likes Spritz, this is the right place. They have a great variety of Sprites' combinations. The classic: Aperol Spritz was excellent!

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
