Poets Keats and Shelley were regular patrons of this popular café, where the view from the outside is not nearly as expensive as the coffee served within.

Do not expect any food or drink very special which will give you the meaning of life ))) the place is already special . Just try to imagine who sat there before you during last 250 years. Do not try to calculate the costs of croissants or sandwiches. You can miss the moment

One of most famous cafes in Rome. Established 1760. The decor is all of mirrors, romantic paintings, gilt, wood, marble and period furnishings lending a unique charm to each of the small rooms that make up the interior. But that's it. Service is slow, coffee is ok. Very pricey.

This is an amazing place, pristine staff, fabulous pastries and cakes, excellent coffee etc etc. It's very pricey at €12 for a coffee/tea, cakes/pastries about the same but inside is just a treasure. Fabulous art, photography all telling tales of the past. Great loo stop too. It felt so special just to be there. You can sit outside at the... More

Yes, the Caffe Greco is a bit expensive & frequented by tourists. That said, I went there last year to look for Buffalo Bill. And I found him ... on the wall ...his photo, that is. He wrote a note to Kubinelli, one of the former owners, on his picture dated 1906. Above this was another photo of him with... More

The environment was nice but everything in there and especially the coffee is really overpriced. The service was ok, but i would not go there again.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
