"Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè is a renowned coffee shop located in the heart of Rome. The coffee shop was first opened in 1938 and has since become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè is known for its signature blend of coffee, which is made from high-quality beans sourced from around the world. The beans are roasted on-site using traditional methods, which helps to bring out the unique flavor and aroma of each coffee variety. One of the things that sets Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè apart from other coffee shops is the way in which they prepare their coffee. The baristas at Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè use a unique method that involves blending the coffee with a small amount of sugar before brewing it. This helps to create a smooth, creamy texture that is characteristic of the coffee served at Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè. Another unique feature of Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè is its location. The coffee shop is situated just a few steps away from the Pantheon, one of the most famous landmarks in Rome. As a result, it is a popular spot for tourists who are looking to take a break from sightseeing and enjoy a cup of coffee in a beautiful setting."
"Può un caffè regalare una emozione? Si. @santeustachioilcaffe ne e la conferma. Una esperienza che coinvolge tutti i sensi. La vista con la bellezza del locale colmo di eccellenze. Il tatto se infiliamo le nostre mani nei sacchi di iuta ricolmi di chicchi fragranti. L'olfatto con il profumo di tostatura che invade le nostre narici già dalla piazza antistante. Il gusto, naturalmente, quando assaporiamo il sapore intenso e deciso di questa piccola opera d'arte che viene realizzata appositamente dietro un pannello così da nascondere ai nostri occhi curiosi il metodo segreto usato per creare quella cremetta soffice come una nuvola che la rende unica. - Caffè di Sant’Eustacchio - 📍Caffetteria di Piazza Sant'Eustachio Piazza Sant'Eustachio 54/55"
"This caffe is quite popular given its central location and also the incredible coffee made an old school way. If you prefer a more fast paced and bustling morning coffee experience then come here to kick off your food tour. The coffee at Sant' Eustachio has a very low caffeine content which is a sign of top quality and helps to eliminate common coffee side effects, like heartburn, headache and insomnia, which is great to avoid when you have a full day of eating, drinking and exploring to do! Sant’ Eustachio churns out up to six thousand coffees a day and is a favorite for locals and celebrities. Try the Gran Caffe – espresso with cream. "

Fascinating places in Rome - a little bit of this, a little bit of that, mixing classics with some unpopular, hidden gems! Where to eat/drink (including a bunch of beautiful rooftops), where to shop (outlets, bespoke & made in Italy - brands you rarely find outside this country) and what to visit around (gorgeous sights included, so be sure to check them out and take lots of pictures). Highlights: 🛵 Vespa - is an Italian luxury brand of scooters and mopeds manufactured by Piaggio. The name means wasp in Italian. An Italian icon since 1946. You’ll see many of these all over the city. 🍕 Roman style Pizza - we encounter "pizza al taglio," which means "by the cut". The scizzas, which are a type of scissors, are used to cut this pizza into square-shaped slices. This helps to maintain the structure of both the toppings and the crust. There is also “pizza bassa”, with a thin base. Roman pizza is practically the opposite to Neapolitan pizza: it is crispy and they are not afraid of toppings. A classic on all menus in Rome is the Capricciosa: topped with ham, mushrooms, olives, artichoke, an egg and tomato. Oil is added to the dough and there is much less water than the Naples version. 🥯 The maritozzo - is a classic sweet pastry, traditionally packed full of whipped cream, which has satisfied Romans for centuries. The dough-based bun is typically eaten in Rome for breakfast but can also be eaten as a hefty snack, or dessert, throughout the day. ☕️ Ristretto - is Italian for "short shots", and that's exactly what this shot of espresso brings to the table. Its main difference is that it takes a shorter extraction time, and uses less water therefore the flavor is rich and bold, and very intense. 🍧 La Grattachecca Romana - a favourite icy drink with fruity flavor; for the Romans, the grattachecca is sacred - strictly prepared by hand in the historical kiosks of the Rioni Trastevere, Testaccio and Prati, in the lively Ponte Milvio area and Trieste and Trionfale districts. Grattachecca derives, in fact, from the action with which the “ghiacciata" (ice) is produced: with a special tool, the ice is scraped off a block, called the "checca" in Roman dialect. 🛍️ When it comes to shopping, Rome can be quite the haven for designer brands, but there is no other fashion house more Roman than Valentino Garavani. The brand’s design (its famous studs) has its origins in the Renaissance architecture of Rome - the “bugnato” technique of the ancient Roman buildings. The largest Valentino store (in the world) lies here, in Rome, on the famous Piazza di Spagna site.
