About Newcastle

Newcastle is known as the smallest big city in the UK! It is so accessible you can actually walk across it in 15 minutes. Down by the Newcastle Quayside, The Tyne Bridge is an international icon and was the basis for Australia’s Sydney Harbour Bridge – which opened 5 years later. Newcastle City Centre is also home to many art galleries and is packed full of culture. Newcastle’s Grade 1 listed Theatre Royal is the northern home of the RSC that takes up residency here each year and plays to packed audiences. Newcastle is also proudly related to its love of football, St James Park is a magnificent stadium and the matchday spirit of the fans is never one to go a miss! Newcastle is also known as the friendliest city in the UK. The residents love to have a chat with each other – even if they don’t know them! You can always rely on a fellow metro passenger to spark up a conversation while you wait for the Tyne and Wear Metro to arrive. The city is uber friendly, knows how to party and is one of the safest cities in England.


Italian Coffee

In Italy, it is known to have a cappuccino with breakfast, a Caffe macchiato (or two) as an afternoon pick me up and an espresso after dinner… In Italy, coffee is typically enjoyed al banco, or at the bar, with friends.

Italian Milky Coffee Guide:

Cappuccino: equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and foamed milk

Caffè latte: espresso with more steamed milk and less foam
