Caffè Letterario Volta Pagina

You have been sightseeing all day and are now looking for a nice, quiet place to sip a cup of tea, or maybe do an aperitivo in case it's almost dinner time. Perhaps with a good book in hand? Then, you are going to love the warm atmosphere of this literary cafe, situated in a street parallel to Lungarno Galilei. Choose a book, find a table and enjoy a drink or a good meal. Occasionally, this place hosts temporary art exhibitions.


In Italy, coffee is just as important as pasta. If you want to act like a local when ordering your coffee, there are some unwritten rules you should keep in mind. Cappuccino, Caffelatte or any other kind of coffee with a lot of milk should only be drunk in the mornings, before 11 am. When you order an espresso, don't use the word espresso, which actually is just a technical phrase. Ask the barista for simply "un caffè". Last but not least, when ordering "un caffè" you don't sit down. Stand at the bar and have your coffee while standing. Whether you feel like blending in or sitting down at a table, there are plenty of cafes to choose from in Pisa.
