My sister and brother-in-law stayed at Campo de'Fiori a few years back and loved it. Last year we took a family trip to Rome and of course stayed at Campo de' Fiori! Since we were going to be in Rome for 2 weeks, we rented one of the apartments instead of just a room. The Hotel consisted of 3 separate buildings, but all within a close proximity to one another.The apartment proved to be very affordable and was the right choice for us. My apartment was on the 2nd floor, had a private bath with a shower, a sitting room complete with a twin bed, a comfy double bed and even a kitchenette! It was perfect. The apartment overlooked the market square which could be a bit noisy since they set up for the day early in the morning. I found it exciting and loved to sit by the window people watching. Please keep in mind, the hotel is very old but still had all the comforts of home.
The hotel was in a wonderful location and we were able to take a short walk to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain & Piazza Navona. The Campo de' Fiore square sold the usual touristy tee shirts, purses, oils, fresh fruits & vegetables. One evening we decided to purchase food items, cheese, meats, & breads which was downstairs from our apartment and had a nice little feast right in our room!
There are several restaurants located right in the square to choose from. We did eat at several and enjoyed it. One thing some tourists may not like is that in the evening the square can be quite noisy with music and a lot of the younger people partying. For us, it wasn't an issue.
Okay, now back to the hotel...the staff at Hotel Campo de'Fiore couldn't be nicer. We found Valentina, Adam, Francisco and the rest of their staff to be wonderful. They were pleasant and accommodating. They made transportation arrangements for us so we could visit Florence. The drivers were also prompt and courteous.
On the roof of the main hotel, comfy seating and small tables were available to relax, have a drink and take in the view of the city below.
We loved our visit to Rome and were looking forward to staying there again this year but due to the pandemic, it had to be canceled. Hopefully we will be able to return next year to see the awesome staff of this wonderful hotel. Until then....ciao!

This is one of the main stops on a foodie walking tour but you can just wander through and you’ll find everything yourself. We walked through this square most days.
If you are staying in an apartment or somewhere where you can eat at home, it’s a great place to pick up fresh food.

In the mornings, there is a colourful market, filled with fresh flowers, veg, fruit, bread, cheeses etc. You’ll also find things you can take home as foodie souvenirs – dried pastas, spices, liqueurs. There are a few touristy stalls also but these are not very special and are pretty much the stuff you'll find everywhere. The market packs up in the afternoon so you need to go earlier in the day.

If you go later, there are several cafes, restaurants and food shops around the piazza that are open all day. We have a couple of favourites here:
i) Forno Campo de’ Fiori - it’s the best bakery. I can’t pass without picking up something. To find it, head to the end of the piazza behind the flower stalls and look for the brown ‘Forno’ sign on the corner of the yellow building. It’s open until 10pm but closes in the middle of the day between 2:30 – 5 and is closed Sundays. I can recommend a warm slice of pizza bianca but my favourite is a small bag of the crumbed olives.
ii) Antica Norcineria Viola for cured meats – so many sorts of prosciutto, salami, hams etc. They are very friendly and if you don't really know what to ask for, they will offer you free tastes and suggestions.

One thing you notice in this piazza is that there are no churches here (which might come as a relief to some). This is because it’s always been a centre of commerce and markets. If you go for a wander, many of the little lanes leading off the piazza are also named after the businesses that the streets historically belonged to - Via dei Cappellari (hat makers), Via dei Chiavari (key makers), Via dei Giubbonari (coat makers).
If you need an historical or sight-seeing ‘fix’, then look for the statue of Giordano Bruno in the middle of the piazza (although he's a bit hidden by the stalls in the morning). A Dominican priest, a mathematician, philosopher and cosmologist, he was outspoken and was condemned as a heretic for his scientific ideas. The interesting thing is that the statue is located on the exact spot where he was burnt in 1600.

GETTING THERE: It’s a short walk from Piazza Navona or the Pantheon so you can combine it with visiting either of these places.

A place worth seeing. The market is open from morning , the stands are rolled up in the late afternoon. Bars and restaurants operate there in the evening. Well-stocked market, prices very affordable and above all delicious products. First-class vegetables and spices. Super picturesque and colorful place. It is city market since the Renaissance, here in 1600 Giordano Bruno was burned. In that place stands a his statue. Now he is looking down at the famous flower market and local Roman delicacies. A great walk through this traditional square in Rome.

This restaurant is right off the piazza. My husband ordered a small pizza and a small portion of spaghetti & meatballs. The portions were actually pretty large. I ordered the canneloni with ricotta & spinach, which also was a large serving. Both meals were delicious. The house red wine was very good. The wait staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Seating outside was under cover and there were plenty of heat lamps. The seating itself was comfortable. Highly recommend.

I had this craze of knowing the market of Campo de'Fiori, well it was a huge let down. The market that I saw in the travel videos had nothing to do with seeing it in person. It was faux market ready for tourist traps all over the place. The market is run by mostly Bangladeshi vendors and others from many other countries. They are selling spices, fruits etc., the one thing I would recommend is the juice and cut fruit. But look at the prices since they were sky high. The place around it was very nice and we did get to enjoy the site and knowing the truth about this market. I do recommend that you go and check it out for yourself and don't fall into the hype nor false appearance of this market.

Once it was simply a simple flowery meadow, which gave the name of "Campo de 'Fiori", until the fifteenth century the animals grazed there.
This square was non long ago one of the most picturesque places in the city.
Located near Piazza Farnese, on the road to Piazza Navona, it still has maintained a little of old charm of ancient Rome, animated every morning by a picturesque market with its wooden stalls.
The rest of the day, its numerous bars and terraces give life to the place. In the evening, many young Romans gather around the statue of Giordano Bruno, to relax, talk, have a beer, talk and make noise..
We know this square very well, which has lost its authenticity over time.
The stalls, except for a few, are all arranged to sell poor quality products to tourists.
There is a good cinema, a historical cinema, an oven and bakery with good baked goods ... and that's it.
They are just memories ..

The warm Roman atmosphere of Campo de' Fiori is not what it used to be. If you are looking for an authentic street market from where local restaurants purchase their daily fresh fruit and vegetable then think again. The market is now dominated by tourist orientated tat such as coloured pastas and liqueurs and nuts from Asia. The market also seems more tightly packed and covered than it was. Claustrophobic in other words. Saying that it remains an iconic location and is perhaps best visited, and enjoyed, in the early evening.

This is one of our favorite areas of Rome. Excellent market filled with vendors during the day and eclectic nightlife. Amazing shops border the square. Make sure you visit the statue of Bruno

This square was busy all the time! Fresh food and flower market during the day and fun nightlife with many bars and restaurants after dark. Felt very safe, we stayed in Air BB apartment overlooking the square, the pictures are a view from our balcony. Highly recommended staying and visiting this area!

I like markets! Every place I visit, I make sure to explore the market. Campo de Fiore is high on my favorite list. It's starts with the walk from the Colosseum, the food stands, the line to the pizza by the slice place, and the vibe of a market in general. And don't miss Mustafa's gadget stand - I find a new gadget every time. A great place to spend 2-3 hours and quite a few Euros too :)
