My husband and I visited Barnum for breakfast and I must say the coffee and pastries were very nice...but that's about it. I think it probably comes into its own in the evenings, when it becomes a cocktail bar. It definitely has a hipster vibe...More

We enjoyed a very nice meal (carbonara and a tart with spinach and ricotta) there, in a very relaxing atmosphere. They had a great selection of cakes too which we didn't try, so we are going back for sure!

Great little coffee shop with awesome cappuccino. They also had a really good selection of cocktails and craft beers, but i sadly didn't get one. Awesome staff that pointed out 3 more things we could see with our day since it was already late afternoon.

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
