Antico Caffe Greco
Deborah Guber

Antico Caffè Greco is the very expensive hangout of bus-loads of tourists; locals, when they come, cram the foyer and down coffee on the hoof.

Founded in 1760, this venerable café – the oldest in Rome – 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 its elegant interior is the very expensive hangout of bus-loads of tourists; locals, when they come, cram the foyer and down coffee on the hoof.
