24 Hours In… Rome.
9am, Get A Caffeine Fix – Romans aren’t early risers, and the city doesn’t really wake up until 9am, when coffee shops are slammed with customers taking shots of espresso and nibbling on subtly sweet pastries called cornetti. I love swinging by Roscioli Caffe for a freshly pulled, beautifully balanced espresso. Here, they go beyond the classic cornetto offerings and serve maritozzi, buns filled with whipped cream – a blast from the Roman breakfast past that was once the wake-up food of choice for locals. rosciolicaffe.com
