The authoritarian Palazzo Mattei di Giove, built in 16th century, is completely decorated by heraldic signs and classical antiquity symbols. It belonged to Giacomo Leopardi's uncle, who hosted him here during his roman journeys. I used to cross the whole town to study in that special, authoritarian calm, that offers a refuge for everyone who needs concentration and loneliness. If you need a place in which it's actually possible to get prepared for your exams, go to the Library and you'll find out how much you can be productive. For lunch, just cross the road and have an ultra energetic felafel at Yesh Sheni, the jewish fast food.
