The Monti distric, between Termini Station and the Roman Forum, is gaining momentum every year. More and more trendy restaurants, boutiques and bars are blossoming requalifying this once neglected and left behind zone, rich of characteristic steep alleys paved with cobblestones (yes, girls are advised to not wear high heels). You can start your night stroll from Ai Tre Scalini (“At the Three Steps”), one of the oldest bistro bars in the neighborhood, established in 1895. The atmosphere inside is warm and informal and it’s seasoned with music ranging from jazz to traditional Roman “stornelli”.
Along with an impressive wine list entirely made up of Italian products, one can taste the excellent “Menabrea” beer and a number of great distilled spirits. A selection of Italian dishes are also available. Ai Tre Scalini is often very crowded, especially on Tuesday and during the weekend. Most of the guests will chat and drink either at the bar or stand in front of the venue. Booking is advisable for table reservation.
