Campo de' Fiori#13 in Best Things To Do in Rome
Price & Hours
- 4.5Food Scene
The Campo de' Fiori is worth visiting twice in a trip – once during the day for its bustling market, and again as the sun sets for its convivial nightlife. According to travel experts, the Campo de' Fiori looks much the same as it did in the early 1800s, except for the numerous pizzerias, cafes and gelaterias that line the periphery.
Recent travelers raved about the people-watching throughout the day; the fresh veggies and fruits at the market and the hopping bar scene at night. Some warned that the restaurant prices are a bit inflated in this area, but conceded that the atmosphere is electric. Even if you don't plan on eating or buying anything within the area, the architecture alone may be enough of a draw, as it was for some.
You'll find Campo de' Fiori south of Piazza Navona. The area is free to visit 24/7. If you aren't traveling by foot or by bike, the area is best reached by bus.

#1 Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi)
A must-see on many travelers' itineraries, the Trevi Fountain is situated amongst a high concentration of hotels, shopping and nightlife. Finished in the mid-1700s, the Trevi is a powerful example of a baroque design with a distinctly mythological character. The god of the sea, Oceanus, emerges from the pool, flanked by his trusty Tritons. The fountain underwent an extensive, mutlimillion euro restoration and reopened in its full splendor in November 2015.
According to Roman lore, throwing one, two or three coins into the Trevi, with your right hand over your left shoulder ensures you'll return to Rome; you'll fall in love with an attractive Roman; and you'll marry that same Roman.
