Campo dei Fiori

Trip Over to Rome

The Campo dei Fiori market in Rome became a daily event for us. Living like the Italians and just picking up what we needed each day rather than going to the supermarket and buying up trolley loads as we do at home. Fortunately our apartment in Rome was a short walk to Campo dei Fiori (meaning field of flowers), so this wasn’t out of our way, and we got to know the stall holders. The first time I was at one of the vegetable stalls, the lady working there was horrified when I started picking out the salad leaves I wanted, but after that she would just give me a small plastic bag and leave me to it. We didn’t eat at the apartment much really, but the occasional meal and lighter snacks were needed, and of course some lovely Italian wines, or a bit of Limoncello on the terrace while we watched Rome go about the business of being Roman.

The first morning I woke up in Rome the view I had from my bed, across the lounge room of our apartment across to Janiculum Hill in one direction and to dome of Sant’ Andrea della Valle in the other had me leaping out of bed and getting ready to get out amongst it. Most days for us started with taking in the view over Largo di Torre Argentina right outside our apartment. Now a cat sanctuary, where Rome’s many stray cats hang out. Not that we saw or heard many of them, they keep pretty much to themselves. There is a lot of archealogical digging going on (we didn’t hear or see much of that either, just the signs of it), as during the rezoning of Rome for planned redevelopment in 1909, parts of giant marble statues and columns were uncovered. This led to the discovery of four temples and the Theatre of Pompey, where Julius Caesar was assassinated in 55 BC.

The square’s name has nothing to do with Argentina, the country. It came from the Papal Master of Ceremonies, Johannes Burckardt, who came from Strasbourg in 1503, he was known as Argentinius. The Tower in the square was named after him – Torre Argentina.




Across the square we spotted a coffee shop, called Cafffe Camerino (Yes there are 3 fs in Cafffe!) A Camerino is a theatre dressing room, so drawing reference to the Theatre of Pompey that sits underneath it. Our day out in Rome would generally begin by popping over to the Cafffe for a coffee, standing up, at the bar as they do in Italy. Of course, you can sit down – but it costs more and you move away from the atmosphere – when in Rome, do as the Romans do……….. Cafffe Camerino also serves the most delicious selection of mini pastries to have with coffee, and that’s breakfast taken care of.

A further 100 mtrs down Largo Arenula, then a right turn at Piazza Bendetto Cairoli, keep walking along here, the bakeries, delis, bag shops, fashion shops should slow you down, and just watching the people is fascinating. As you get closer to Campo dei Fiori you will notice the street name changes to Via dei Giubbonari, which is the street of tailors. All the streets around Campo dei Fiori are named for the work that was done there. Via dei Balestrari (crossbow makers), Via dei Cappellari (hat-makers), Via dei Chiavari (key-makers).

Along the way you will come across Forno Roscioli, the Roscioli family bakery since 1824, delicious pies and tarts, breads and pizza, but don’t worry, Rome is a walking city, and quick hike up Janiculum Hill and you’ll work it all off!

You will then arrive at the bustling market that is Campo dei Fiori, the only piazza in Rome without a church. Fruit, vegetables, pasta, oils, vinegars, pots, pans, everything is there. If you can’t find it in the market, the shops will have it. Some of the stalls are set up for tourists, coloured pastas and things like that, but it’s all interesting.

I particularly liked a little shop run by the Ruggeri family since 1919, up in the corner of the Campo near the corner of Via dei Guibbonari and Via dei Balestrari, the perfect place to pick up some wine, cheese, olives, a bit of porchetta and make sure you pick up some Limoncello to finish with and you’re all set………

Camp dei Fiori has a full history from being a field of flowers, to the path the Pope took to get through to the Vatican, to holding a flourishing horse market in the 1500s, to the public executions that were held here in the 1600s. There is a statue of philosopher Giordano Bruno, who was burnt alive for heresy, then regarded as a martyr to freedom of thought. The statue stands in the spot where the burning happened, defiantly facing the Vatican.

The market moved from Piazza Navona to the current location in 1869. Every morning the market is set up, then it is all packed away, the whole area is cleaned up and the evening crowd comes to fill the bars and clubs around the piazza. My only suggestion here is look but don’t try – any bar or restaurant with someone out the front touting for business is not where the locals go. You won’t get the best food, or the best service here, and you will pay more. But do go to some of the smaller places that don’t have a touter out the front, they serve great aperitivo – small delicious snacks served with drinks before dinner – while you indulge in a little people watching.

It was really hard taking photos of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the temptation to line it up straight in the lens is something I struggled with, having it next to a straight building helps!!! . . . #leaningtower #leaningtowerofpisa #torredelpendente #pisaitaly #piazzadelmiracoli #pisaduomo #pisatrip #pisaduomopiazzadeimiracoli #pisa #pisaitaly #italianarchitecture #italianhistory #madeinitaly #solotravel #solotravelinitaly #neverstopexploring #medievalitaliancity #historicitaly #italytrip #oldbuildingsmakemehappy #historicbuildingsenrichourlives
The foot bridge to the Marina in La Spezia makes for a lovely walk in the afternoon, there are a few bars and restaurants out there too 🥂!!

Looking north up the Cinque Terre coast from the breakwall in Riomaggiore. I was there in April this year, before the season kicked off, a lot of the buildings had their shutters closed, as I guess the owners are away until the season starts. There were still crowds of people coming in after about 10am everyday, I'm so pleased I was there early. Over tourism is a huge problem in so many parts of Italy. . . . #riomaggioreitaly #riomaggiorevillage #riomaggiorecinqueterreitaly #riomaggiore #cinqueterreitaly #cinqueterrenationalpark #cinqueterre #outonthewater #solotravel #solotrip #solotravelingisfun #traveladdict #travelinitaly #neverstopexporing #neverstoptravelling #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #traveltheworldworldwithme #travelinitaly #seekandyoushallfind

Look at all those steps!! Fortunately, just down the road there is a lift and funicular to get you up to where the castle is.

After arriving at Riomaggiore Station, you then walk through a tunnel from the village to the harbour. The tunnel is lined with mosaics of sea creatures and water scenes.

This fruit and vegetable shop really stood out in Riomaggiore!! Most of the rest of the village is restaurants or shops selling tourist trash, tea towels and socks all printed with Riomaggiore or Cinque Terre. I feel the whole area has lost it's charm and authenticity to over tourism. . . #riomaggioreitaly #riomaggiorecinqueterreitaly #riomaggiore #riomaggiorecinqueterre #riomaggiorevillage #shoppingincinqueterre #cinqueterreitaly #cinqueterrenationalpark #cinqueterre #fruitandveg #oranges #berries #bananas #solotravel #solotrip #solotravelinitaly #neverstopexploring #seeeverythingdoeverything #traveltheworldworldwithme #traveladdict #traveltheworldwithme
Riomaggiore is the southern most village in the Cinque Terre National Park on Italy's north west coast. Here looking down to the harbour, this was at about 9am, after 10am it gets so crowded as the people flood in, it is almost unbearable. . #riomaggiorecinqueterreitaly #riomaggiorecinqueterre #riomaggiore #cinqueterreitaly #cinqueterrenationalpark #cinqueterre #solotravel #solotrip #solotravelinitaly #neverstopexploring #boatsboatsboats #riomaggioreharbour #visitcinqueterre #italianadventure #italytravel #italytrip #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #traveltheworldworldwithme

The statue standing in Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, is rather unfortunately named The Rape of the Sabine Women, or The Abduction of the Sabine Women, both equally bad, depicting the way women were treated in Roman times.

Vernazza, the 4th of the Cinque Terre villages as I head north on the ferry from La Spezia to Montarossa al Mare.

Corniglia is the middle village in the Cinque Terre National Park, and my favourite!! It has managed to hold on to it's authenticity and not sell out to become another characterless place full of shops selling rubbish to tourists. Possibly because it is not on the water. I arrived on an early train from La Spezia, and caught the waiting shuttle bus up to the village. . . #corniglia #cornigliacinqueterre #corniglia5terre #cinqueterrenationalpark #cinqueterrecoast #cinqueterreitaly #cinqueterre #solotravel #italytrip #madeinitaly #traveladdict #travelinitaly #solotrip #solotravelinitaly #neverstopexploring #seeeverythingdoeverything #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #traveltheworldworldwithme

Siena is one of the lovliest medieval Italian cities, this is the town hall, Palazzo Pubblico with it's 14th century tower, Torre del Mangia sitting on the edge of the main square Piazza del Campo. I recently spent 3 nights in Siena, and really wish I had stayed a bit longer. I'm sure I'll go back one day to continue exploring this historic Tuscan city. . . #siena #sienaitaly #palazzopubblico #torredelmangia #piazzadelcampo #medievalitaliancity #historicitaly #solotravelinitaly #solotravel #solotrip #italianhistory #italytravel #italytrip #italy #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #traveltheworldwithme #traveladdict #neverstopexploring #oldbuildingsmakemehappy #historicbuildingsenrichourlives

Castello San Giorgio in La Spezia has been protecting this part of Italy since 1262, it now houses a museum and a fabulous view from the top. There is a lift up from the town area, then cross the road and jump on to the funicular to get up to the castle, or if you're feel fit, there are steps, many, many of them!!

The Fountain of Dialogue in Piazza Garibaldi in La Spezia, I'm not too sure how I feel about it, it's different from all angles, some better, some not so nice!!

The very detailed front of Siena Duomo, built between 1215 and 1264, in the beautiful medieval Tuscan city of Siena.

As the ferry from La Spezia pulled into Vernazza, on the Cinque Terre coast, we were all mesmerised by the efficiency of this helicopter that seemed to be bringing building supplies in from just over this hill, where the closest road is. The guys who unhooked the load were so fast the chopper seemed to not even slow down as it spun around to go back for the next load, then the same at the pick up location, it just swooped in and they were ready to hook the next load on and it flew on, a well rehearsed routine!! . . #vernazza #vernazzaitaly #vernazzacinqueterre #cinqueterrenationalpark #cinqueterrecoast #cinqueterreitaly #cinqueterre helicopter #deliveringsupplies #vineyardsofitaly #seekandyoushallfind #seeeverythingdoeverything #solotravelinitaly #solotravel #solotrip #italytravel #italianadventure
