Rome: a Saturday in September

The week has passed … and is Saturday!
What can I do?

1) First stop: Antonini  for a “Cappuccino and cornetto vuoto”

Historic bar, on Lungo Tevere Mellini, for a fantastic quick breakfast!

2) Next stop: the Aventino, and the famous keyhole of the Cavalieri  della Croce di Malta.

To get there:

 from Piazza Cavour (nearby),

–  Bus 87 and get off at the Imperial Forums,


 – Bus 60 and go down at the Aventine.

Not even 50meters  and I am in one of the most beautiful hills of Rome.

  Legend says that all the Aventine Hill, is a huge ship sacred to the Knights Templars, ready to set sail one day to the Holy Land. The part that goes down to the Tiber was the bow, the maze of gardens and shrubs were the ropes, and the obelisks were the masts.

To find the Cross of the Order of the Knights of Malta, just look for a crowd of people and get in line. It is not easy to photograph this spectacular view…

3) Hungry?

The “Antica Birreria Peroni”, Via di

San Marcello 19, is a fun but chaotic!

And is perfect if you want a bit of confusion, attended by many employees who work in the area … and then on Saturday is a bit better!

To get there:

from Circo Massimo ( 50 m away)

– Bus 60 and get off at Piazza Venezia,

– 300 meter walk to Via di San Marcello!

Last time I ate a “Scamorza con alici” and a Tiramisù! No bad… 😉
