Coffee aficionados mostly agree that Italy is a great destination for good coffee. Within Italy, Rome is one of the best cities to sit in a café, enjoy the coffee, and watch the street.
Antico Caffè Greco
The oldest coffee shop in Rome is famous for its historical roster of regulars, including names such as Mark Twain, Orson Welles, and even Casanova. It’s not the cheapest place to sit for a coffee, but sometimes the vibe is worth more than a beverage and a pastry.
A 1920’s café that kept the original interior deco, located within the Piazza del Popolo, a major tourist interest spot. It offers terrace seating with a great view and excellent espresso. What more can we ask for!
Also at Piazza del Popolo is Canova, which serves a specialty drink called “Espressino doc,” which is an espresso with cocoa powder and whipped cream, a specialty mocha of a sort. Sit in the internal garden or inside, for a coffee or a full lunch.
Located at the lovely Piazza Navona, this is a restaurant with tasty pizza and great coffee. Enjoy visiting the view of Bernini’s Four Rivers Fountain and the exquisite selection of coffee and cappuccino.
