Cafe Life – La Dolce Vita

Joe, Gerry, and Jochen at Cafe FarneseJoe, Gerry, and Jochen at Cafe Farnese, Rome, 2012

Relaxing outdoors in one of the thousands of cafes that line the streets is part of the Roman way of living.  Cafes come in all shapes and sizes from the very humble to the very chic. One attribute they all share – the waiters will not rush you.  In Italy no one will bring the check until you ask for it – a refreshing change to be sure. Nothing is more enjoyable that sitting outside with friends and family.  People watching,  discussing the news of the day, or planning where you may be going next can take hours!

You will undoubtedly discover a cafe to call your own, generally if you visit an establishment more than three times you are considered a regular, however if you need a suggestion or two some of my favorites areas/cafes include:

Campo di Fiori – Cafe Farnese

Via Veneto – Cafe de Paris

Navona/Piazza Pasquino – Il Piccolo

Piazza del Popolo – Canova

Via Marmorata – Tram Depot

Please share any of your favorites !!!!
