Caffe Pedrocchi Tips (4)

Caffè Pedrocchi.

Since the beginning of the '900 and 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 as the Etruscan Room, the Egyptian Room and so on.

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.

Caffe Pedrocchi

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.
