One of the good things about spending a few days in Rome is that I get to go and visit lots of nice spots where to hang about, browse books and also, yes, have coffee!
This morning hubby and I went to see the exhibition on Augusts at the Scuderie del Quirinale… Go see it if you can, it is on til 9 February and you can find more info here:
After the visit we thought we’d take a walk down, around Via del Corso and near Montecitorio, Italy’s lower House. That area is brilliant if you are after a caffe’, a little walk and some good people watching. Just a few steps from the Parlamento is the historic Giolitti, which also offers excellent pastries and gelato… And also San Crispino, for you ice cream lovers out there! In the Galleria Alberto Sordi on via del Corso is also a good Illy caffe’ spot, great if you are on the go! and then, of course… My favourite by the Pantheon, Caffe’ Tazza d’Oro! It is, on my humble opinion, the best espresso in town 😀 and you can also buy their own coffee to make at home… Yes, I admit to it… I stocked up for both my De Longhi Trieste and my French Press… Regina del Caffe’ for the former and Mayagogype for the latter. They are now sealed and ready to go In the suitcase whenever it is time to pack! 😉
And now, back to my book… And to my nephews and my sister’s dog, who is conveniently perched between me and hubby on the sofa!
