Located right next to the Spanish Steps, this is a good-sized English tearoom with a cosy atmosphere. The interior has been tastefully decorated and the staff were friendly and welcoming. While their menu isn’t the most affordable, we enjoyed our pit stop here: the food...More

I went in because I had to wait for the Keats and Shelley house to open at 2. Was astounded by the prices. Never again.

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

Description
Established in 1893 by two English ladies, Babington's has maintained, for over a century, the style and atmosphere of the period. Ever since it has become the favourite meeting place for writers, actors, artists, politicians and those in search of privacy and comfort. To this day Babington's remains a family run business and a corner of English heritage tucked away from the bustle of modern day life. At any time throughout the day you can choose from a selection of English breakfasts, light snacks, delicious luncheons and drinks as well as a superb range of teas to be accompanied by cakes and pastries baked freshly every morning. Entering the Tea Rooms, you can't miss Babington's Tea Shop, a discreet corner where you can choose between more than 120 varieties of teas and blends and all the accessories needed to satisfy even the most knowledgeable of connoisseurs.
