– A “cult” of Roman night-time spots, known
for its picturesque style and the charisma of its owners, as well as
its somewhat kitsch decorating. In the main room there are portraits
of the owners in various poses. Don’t forget to go into the bathroom,
which has an ancient Roman washhouse within it, and has become a
sort of “national monument”.
