Background on Campo de'Fiori

The best place to start with the Campo de'Fiori is to learn about the history of the piazza. According to the Forno Campo de'Fiori, a bakery in the piazza, this piazza saw its fair share of festivities, but also gore. Executions were once performed in the square. Today, the fountain in the middle is dedicated to this and more specifically to Giordano Bruno. For more information about the bakery or to see their amazing pastries, visit their site at This will definitely be my next place to visit in the piazza.

If you want to visit the piazza, check out the map for its exact location: Make sure you look for Via dei Giubbonari because this road opens up to the piazza.
