I visited Circus on a Friday afternoon when I needed a quiet place to do some work on my laptop, and I was amazed by how nice an environment it is to work in - a real rarity in central Rome. Free WiFi if you consume something, lovely decor, spacious tables, delicious juices and smoothies and a great music selection.... More

This shabby place is easy to miss when not open - and don't expect them to open right on time. But once they are open, it is a nice place to sit and work a bit, or chill on the couches. They have a wide selection of tea, both bags and leaves, and of course the obvious espresso. Mind you... More

We saw this restaurant walking through Rome old town next to the Tiber river and decided to take the brunch option. It was amazing, homemade food, typical Italian desserts, top choice! The owner is really kind with the customers

I love cafè circus because of the great vibes. If you are looking for a place to sit with your laptop in downtown look no further! Great wifi, awesome chai tea and music like Nahko Bear & Trevor Hall. In Rome!! 5 stars plus.

On our last day we found this spot. Wish we'd have found it sooner. 16 euro buffet with sweet, savory, juice and espresso beverage. Great atmosphere with book / music theme and relaxing music playing. Ruby the dog visiting tables made it feel like we were visiting a friends kitchen. The food was fantastic with baked sweet and savory dishes... More

We stopped for breakfast one Sunday morning, attracted by the funky, eclectic decor and the promise of freshly juiced pomegranate. The menu was good and we couldn't decide what to choose; while we dithered, the waitress asked if we'd prefer eggs - they weren't on the menu, but they could cook some for us. We did - it was exactly... More

Had a nice amaretto hot chocolate and cheese/salami platter, but found the service poor. Wait staff were inattentive and disinterested.

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
