Campo de’ Fiori is a colorful open air market held Mon-Sat morning at Piazza Campo de’ Fiori in Rome. The square has a dark history as it was used for executions, thereof the statue of the philosopher Giordano Bruno who was burned for his beliefs and forward thinking 400 years ago. Now the square is full of life and vegetable and fruit stands with visits by both local and tourists. The name means a field of flower in Italian which comes fr the fact that the area, during the Middle Ages was a meadow.
After my breakfast at Villa Spalletti Trivelli where I stayed one night in Rome I went to visit Campo de’ Fiori that is just about 15 minutes walk fr the hotel. I love outdoor markets and try to visit them when I’m travelling to new places. After all, these markets are the perfect place if you want to immerse in local atmosphere.
