The real attraction of this shop is its delicatessen. Many very special items, from aceto to biscuits, friendly service, worth going.

Just a famous coffee place which sells all kinds of food (coffee beans mixtures/chocolate/sweets/marmalade from England for example). Specialized in foreign goods from all over the world but has also local sweets and other specialties. Ideal for finding a little culinary gift.

Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
