Campo de' Fiori

Piazza di Campo de' Fiori, Rome

4

Campo de' Fiori is a rectangular square south of Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy, at the border between rione Parione and rione Regola. It is diagonally southeast of the Palazzo della Cancelleria and one block northeast of the Palazzo Farnese. Campo de' Fiori, translated literally from Italian, means "field of flowers". The name dates to the Middle Ages when the area was a meadow. Campo de' Fiori has never been architecturally formalized. The square has always remained a focus for commercial and street culture: the surrounding streets are named for trades—Via dei Balestrari, Via dei Baullari, Via dei Cappellari, Via dei Chiavari and Via dei Giubbonari. Campo de' Fiori is famous for the church. Since 1869 a daily vegetable and fish market that was previously held in Piazza Navona has been held there. The ancient cattle fountain known as la Terrina was resited in 1889 and replaced with a copy that now is used to keep cut flowers fresh. At night, Campo de' Fiori is a meeting place for tourists and young people coming from the whole city.

    Quite a disappointing market to be honest. We visited it expecting it to be abundant in stalls and full of traditional Italian items and food, but instead found dried fruit with flies hovering over it and tacky clothing and objects that can be bought elsewhere in the area too. It's important to experience as much of the culture as possible when visiting places abroad, but don't expect the markets to be as vibrant and full of independent stores like there are in the UK.

    A lovely and lively place for the evening. There are probably 10-12 restaurants on the area and live music for everyone to enjoy. You will also find some artists, etc here. Worth the visit.

    Colourful ‘Il Campo’ is a major focus of Roman life: by day it hosts one of Rome's best-known markets, while at night it morphs into a raucous open-air pub as drinkers spill out from its bars and eateries. For centuries the square was the site of public executions, and it was here that philosopher Giordano Bruno was burned for heresy in 1600. The spot is marked by a sinister statue of the hooded monk, created by Ettore Ferrari in 1889.

    Often I'm there, it's really characteristic and nice place. Full of young people and foreigners.. Easy to meet and know new people and spend really good time. With many local in each small street. Really cool. I recommend it

    the market is nice and like most things in Rome located in a very nice neighborhood. There are fresh fruits and vegetables but mainly it's a good place to get dry presents like pasta. I wouldn't call it a must-see Market. I was there in August so maybe not the best representation of the place because in August big parts of the city are closed due to the vacation

    Best pizza I ever had. Crunchy thin crust, tasty tomato sauce, and perfectly melted cheese. Yum! The patio has fans that mist! A major plus in the summer time!

    Vibrant and exciting area of Rome, with alleys and little cobbled streets. Full of artisan shops, market stalls and wonderful eating places. Food is not expensive and service great. Highly recommended for a visit or a stay.

    This was my favorite part of Rome during my recent vacation to Italy. My wife and I came to the plaza for lunch and dinner for quite a few occasions during our stay. All of the restaurants continued in the square were excellent. During the day there is a fruit and cheese market and by night becomes a lively spot to hang around and grab some drinks or dinner.

    Peculiar and picturesque street market. Fresh fruit and vegetable and local produce and products are always available. Noisy and crowded at times, but that's one of the features that makes it popular. It drastically changes at night when it turns into one of the most famous places for the city night life. Lots of restaurants and bars offer a great choice of aperitivi, drinks tip late. Recommended.
