„Field of Flowers“ – what a picturesque name for a square. It remains from the Middle Ages when this place in Rome was still a meadow. In 1869 the daily vegetable and fish market moved from Piazza Navona to Campo de´Fiori.

The ancient fountain („La Terrina“ – the soupbowl)  was once used to water the cattle and now keeps the flowers fresh – have a look at the inspription saying „Fa del ben e lassa dire“ (do good and let them talk), isn´t that perfect for such a gossip heaven, like a market?!

The square is surrounded by lots and lots of cafés, have some breakfast or just caffé and watch the happenings in front of you! And Campo de´Fiori is a great place to get some little gifts to take home like spices or my favourite: all the different sundried tomatoes, such a huge variety to choose from!
