Italy lays claim to the invention of coffee culture; the first coffee houses are believed to have opened in Venice in 1629. While many European cities are known for their relaxed café society, Italy, and Rome in particular, are less leisurely. The espresso is probably Rome’s coffee favourite and the city has a wealth of coffee bars to cater to the Roman habit of taking four or five a day, swiftly consumed standing at the bar or perched at the counter. An international clientele will appreciate a less hasty approach, so we offer our guide to some of the top cafés in Rome. Discover the best here.
