This eatery is right across the entrance from the Vatican Museums and tours congregate at the steps next to this coffee shop. After a long walk, we went in to get a coffee before the tour. Waiters kept encouraging us to sit down (mistake!) because...More

This was a meeting place for our Vatican tour, and they know it. We had a beer and wine, I asked for a glass and was given a small bottle, which was conveniently opened by the time it got to the table. Our bill was...More
