Galleria Santa Cecilia
Set on the sophisticated side of Trastevere, opposite the church of Santa Cecilia, Galleria Santa Cecilia is one of the places to drink in Rome which pleases the eyes and the tastebuds. This watering-hole is attached to an acclaimed photography gallery run by Maria Evangelisti. Bounteously stocked with photography and contemporary art books, the place comes alive in the evening, especially when a new show is festooned across the whitewashed walls. Get a fix of arty modernity over a glass of wine, see and be seen in the cube-like gallery bar and leaf through some photography tomes before plunging back into the rustic Roman ways with a hearty plate of spaghetti all’amatriciana in nearby Da Enzo trattoria.
