Campo de Fiori Market

Every day of the week at about 3pm the most famous market of Rome, Campo de Fiori, has to be cleaned so that the next morning at 5am can start again it’s activity. It has been like this for more than 100 years. I find it amazing how the market with all it’s stalls and people negotiating, buying or just looking disappear by magic after 4 in the afternoon.
It’s like it has never been! Of course, the cleaning up process is a nasty one. It has to be done quickly and efficiently.
If you find yourself in Rome chose carefully your time when planning to visit Campo de Fiori.
Unless you want to experience a messy, dirty square out of which you won’t understand much come over after 4pm to have a drink by Giordano Bruno’s statue  or come by in the morning to buy fresh ( but expensive) vegetables and fruits.

Dont get me wrong, I very much like this experience but it is because I live in Rome and I had the chance to see the piazza in all it’s moments.
