Sant' Eustachio Il Caffè

Bags of coffee beans rest on the floor and images of plantations adorn the walls. Sant' Eustachio Il Caffè has looked the same for as long as anyone can remember. Steps away from Piazza Navona, this Roman institution is, arguably, Rome's most famous coffee shop, famed for its home-roast beans, which are blended with water from an ancient aqueduct. In addition to the different types of coffee, they also serve the "gran caffè", a cappuccino without milk, where the coffee is foamed instead.


Rome's coffee culture is steeped in tradition and passion. The city's charming cafés exude an inviting atmosphere, where locals and tourists alike gather to savour the rich aroma and intense flavour of espresso, the quintessential Italian coffee. From bustling streets to historic piazzas, coffee serves as a delightful companion to daily life. Moreover, no Roman experience is complete without a creamy indulgence of artisanal gelato, crafted in a myriad of luscious flavours.
