Sitting on a campo made famous in films with Katharine Hepburn and Indiana Jones, Caffè Ai Artisti gives locals, students, and travelers alike good reason to pause and refuel. The location is central, pleasant, and sunny—perfect for people-watching and taking a break before the next destination—and the hours are long: you can come here for a morning cappuccino, or drop by late for an after-dinner spritz. The panini are composed on-site from fresh, seasonal ingredients, their names scribbled in front of each on the glass case. There's a varied selection of wines by the glass, as well as herbal teas, and even caffè with ginseng.
