Caffe Greco Tours

Among the many places to get coffee in Rome, one of the most famous is the Antico Caffe Greco—the city’s oldest cafe. Often called simply Caffe Greco, the coffee bar is easy to visit, just a short distance from the Spanish Steps. The bar takes its name from the Greek man who opened it, Nicola della Maddalena, in 1760. While many visitors stop in simply to get a coffee or a snack, most make a point to seek out the destination because of the illustrious patrons of its past. The bar was frequented by Mendelssohn, Wagner, Ibsen, Keats, Byron, Liszt, Stendhal, Geothe, and many more artists, musicians, and writers over the centuries.

There are several rooms in the bar, many of which also double as art galleries, with paintings and drawings hung all over the walls. Look for artistic representations of the bar in the art hanging on the walls, as Caffe Greco has been a popular subject for art over the years, too.

Practical Info

Caffe Greco is open from 9am to 9pm daily. Note that you’ll pay more to sit at a table here than to stand at the bar and quickly drink a coffee (as is the case with most bars in Italy), but consider this a cafe that doubles as a museum.
