Near campo die fiori you can find a very good place to have breakfast, in a young and fresh coffee house. Daily made croissant and cakes. And a smiling cappuccino. Good prices.

Staff can be a bit stand-offish but don't let that put you off. This is a local gem of a bar. We stayed 5 minutes away from this bar and although the bartender was friendly enough, he could've exhibited a warmer welcome. However the drinks...More

I can't say it was the best place I ever been but I liked it. The barista was quite professional and the place was grungy. Working in hospitality I say that the customer service could be a bit more welcoming/clean

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
