The entrance to the Cappa-Café does not promise anything special: it looks like is an ordinary city café on a shady little square by the river. A couple of tables outside, a bar in the back. However, this café has a great, although non immediately evident, advantage: a tiny terrace with virtually the best view of Castel San Pietro and Teatro Romano. You’ll learn more about them towards the end of the tour, but now we suggest you sit on the terrace, enjoying the view and taking some rest.
To choose one of the many drinks that Cappa-Cafè offers will not be easy, that’s why they are famous for their cocktail menu with the locals. Check it out: they have more than 70 types of vermouth and gin alone! Ingredients are mixed in perfect proportions by the owners, Vanessa and Michele, who are, by the way, certified barmen.
Let’s see, how many types of Spritz do you know? Just one? Here you will be given a choice of seven different recipes!
The building was built back in the 13th century, and in its cellar, there is an entrance to a cave, dug by the ancient Romans. This Cafè has been open since 1966 and its interior, richly decorated with objects of different eras and styles, underlines the depth of their history.
