Looking for an exclusive caffè in Italy?
Then Padua has the right ambience.
It’s not only Padua’s ambience, but also its coffee!
At the Caffè Pedrocchi in the city center, you can enjoy a quite unique version of the famous Italian black drink. Since 1826, the Pedrocchi family have been serving their coffee with mint leaves and mint syrup, to add a little something special to the taste. This distinctive coffee is said to match the colour of the interior of the caffè itself. Sure, this touch of elegance makes the well-known Caffè Pedrocchi really exclusive.
Padua is also bursting with chic elegance!
The city is located in the northeast of Italy, in Veneto, and has always been known for its ancient University, the University of Padua. Rich in history, it is one of world’s oldest surviving university and many academics and scientists have for centuries found Padua the right place to meet. No wonder the first women ever to receive a PhD from a university, Cornaro Pisconia, received it from Padua University in 1678.
Just a few weeks ago, as we walked through the city center on a still-warm October afternoon, when the restrictions to contain the outbreak of Covid19 were not yet so strict, we enjoyed the joyful, relaxed mood of the weekend’s shoppers. Listening to the cheerful music of the street musicians, we admired the elegance of streets and buildings all around us!
Padua is both academic and sophisticated and has the right ambience for sure.
