Antico Caffè Greco review Rate it

Founded in 1760, this venerable café was once the hangout of Casanova, Goethe, Wagner, Stendhal, Baudelaire, Shelley and Byron. Opposition to the French Occupation of 1849-70 was planned here. Today it has its sofas packed with tourists, while locals cram the foyer. Literary and musical evenings with a light dinner hark back to its artistic past.
