Italy is a Mecca when it comes to coffee and gelato (ice cream). The Romans know exactly which cafes to visit and don't mind going across town to reach the best.Sant' Eustachio Il CaffèBags of coffee beans rest on the floor and images of plantations adorn the walls. Sant' Eustachio Il Caffè has looked the same for as long as anyone can remember. Steps away from Piazza Navona, this Roman institution is arguably Rome's most famous coffee shop, famed for its home-roast beans, which are blended with water from an ancient aqueduct.

In addition to the different types of coffees, they also serve the "gran caffè", a cappuccino without milk, where the coffee is foamed instead.
