Rome Campo De Fiori area

Visiting Rome and thinking about heading to the Campo de’Fiori market during your stay?

To really enjoy this market, it’s best to come early;  it closes every day around 2 pm. On Sundays the Italian vendors have a day off, but any other day of the week you can enjoy a bustling market on this square in the center of Rome. It has been like that for almost 150 years already! A long time ago, the square was no more than a “field of flowers” – explaining its name. Lots of colourful flowers are still being sold here daily, including fruit, vegetables, bread, fish, spices and so on.

In the evening the square changes face and becomes a meeting place for locals. Especially during the hot summer this is a popular gathering spot. Both young people and older folks flock to the piazza to hang out after the sun has set and temperatures are more pleasant. Campo de Fiori area has many restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy some good food and vibes.

After you’ve bought what you needed and taken pictures of the typical Roman market scene, it’s time to move on and explore the Campo de Fiori area – as this part of town has many more places you shouldn’t miss out on!

Discover Campo de Fiori area in Rome

Rome is filled with beautiful squares, and the next one is not far… Head to Piazza Navona, just 350 meters away, to relax at one of the many cafes or to admire the three fountains and the historic church that are located there. This large square has a history dating back to ancient Roman times, it is in fact built on the very same site as where once was the Stadium of Domitian. In this stadium, Romans watched gladiator fights, chariot races and other games for their amusement. Nowadays, street artists are usually there to entertain you and the many other tourists at the Piazza Navona.

Another square that’s even closer to Campo de Fiori (just an alley away from it) is Piazza Farnese named after the Farnese family palace Palazzo Farnese that you can admire here. Three architects worked on the 16th-century building: Antonio da Sangallo the Younger, Michelangelo and Giacomo della Porta. This piazza is less hectic than its neighbor and has two “bathtub fountains” in the middle which used to be part of the ancient Baths of Caracalla.
