Hg2 : The Hedonist

Caffè Capitolino

The route to Caffè Capitolino has one of the most pleasingly secretive airs about it compared with any of the other cafés in Rome. From Campidoglio square (with the equestrian monument of Marcus Aurelius), take the stairs up to the convent that is on the left, sneak through the open door on the right and follow the internal corridor along. You’ll arrive onto the huge terrace as if by accident. It’s somewhere to quench your thirst and have a piece of cake rather than stop for long lunch, but the unrivalled view and position makes it worth a look. When the sky is clear enough you can even see the smudged outline of Castelli Romani in the distance.
