    Since the beginning of the '900 (until 1916) it was opened 24 hours 24. For this reason it was called “cafe without doors”. On the ground floor there is a luxury cafe. Some rooms originally used for reading, games and dancing are opened to visitors on the first floor. These have different themes. For instance, there is the Etruscan Room, the Egyptian Room and so on.

    This building was designed by Giuseppe Japelli and houses the cafe/coffee house in the center of Padova. Part of its history is that when the Austrians ruled Padova, the students and citizens of Padova (1848) held a violent protest here. In a short time the Austrians left Padova.
    Caffe Pedrocchi has a tradition that undergraduate students do not go inside, as they believe that if they do, they will not graduate.
    This caffe is frequented by the well to do of Padova.
    Prices are higher as expected.

    Caff�� Pedrocchi

    Don't miss visiting the Caffé Pedrocchi, one of the most famous in Italy.

    It was constructed in 1831, following the plans of Giuseppe Jappelli, and since then has been an artists, intellectuals and students meeting point.

    This is one of Paduas most famous sights, and one of the most famous coffee houses in Italy. The building was commissioned by Antonio Pedrocchi - a 19th century coffee maker, and was designed by Giuseppe Jappelli, who was a venetian architect, in 1831.

    Open 0930 -1230 and 1530 - 1800 daily except Mondays unless on public holidays (25/26 Dec, 1st Jan and 1st May)
    Admission free with Padua card.
    No Photography allowed

    I visited at just after 15.30, and I had the place to myself. Enter by the door which is to the right in the picture and ascend a steep staircase of 30+ steps.
    to be continued....
