G. Rocca Cafe at Pantheon (Meeting Irving), Rome

G. Rocca Cafe at Pantheon (Meeting Irving), Rome

After Joe runs into Ann eating gelato at the Spanish Steps, and the two of them agree to spend a holiday, "sit at a sidewalk cafe and look in shop windows, walk in the rain—have fun, and maybe some excitement," Joe claims to know "just the place. Rocca's" to fulfill her first wish. G. Rocca Cafe next to the Pantheon (126 AD) at the northwest corner of its facade, is the place where Ann drinks champagne at breakfast, meets Irving Radovich, Joe's colleague and photographer, and smokes her first cigarette. At the corner of Via della Rotonda, it is no longer a cafe but a trendy fashion store.
