Via Luigi Settembrini 25
Ahhh Italy, known for its pizza, coffee, pasta and gelato! My sister promised me that we would “eat gelato three times a day, and drink coffee twice a day.” Sadly, that wasn’t the case. We only had gelato once a day and coffee twice a day, but I’m not complaining.
We arrived at our hotel at 8 am, check in was at 2 PM so we had 6 hours to kill. After we dropped off our suitcases, we decided to make a coffee run and explore the neighborhood. My sister had tediously planned our trip using tripadvisor.com so we were prepared with a list of coffee places to try. Settembrini was only a few minutes away so after a little trip to a small swap meet (farmers market?) we stopped in for a cup of coffee.
My sister ordered the caffè latte and we got two pastries. The total was only 2.70 Euros. She said the latte was delicious and kept on wanting to go back, but after finding SCIASCIA CAFFE (review coming soon) she realized that Settembrini wasn’t as good as she thought. In Italy, it seemed quite common for people to drink at the bar so luckily we were able to find a seat in the “bar area” facing the wines but also having a great view of the busy counter. If you want to sit inside where there were more tables, then you would have to pay a “sit in” fee but as we were in the bar area it was free.
Here’s a shot of the market we were able to visit.
