In Rome, it's all about the coffee. After calcio (soccer), it's the one thing, Italians just can't live without. In Rome, there are plenty of cafés where you can either sit and enjoy a cappuccino or even order a light lunch or a snack. If you're looking for a posh place to park yourself to do a little people watching, Caffè della Pace near Piazza Navona and Ciampini near the Spanish Steps is your place.
In the mood for a great cup of joe and want to find a place where you can bring some of the best beans home with you? Look no further than Castroni and Tazza d'Oro. Both are definitely places to pick up some of the freshest beans. Fancy a sweet afternoon snack with your coffee? For delicious desserts like cannoli or mini-tarts and cheesecakes while you're sipping on some caffè, try Dagnino near Piazza Repubblica or Cristalli di Zucchero near Circus Maximus.
Whatever the scene you're looking for, sitting in a café and enjoying the good life is a favorite Italian pastime and certainly something tourists need to experience when exploring the Eternal City!
