Campo De Fioro

This is my third visit to this amazing city and for the first time today we visited a wonderful piazza called Campo De Fiori. The square and surrounding streets were full of market stalls and small shops, a few trinkets for the tourists, a butcher shop and bakery, street musicians and artists and wonderful little sidewalk cafes.....oh and gelato! We strolled around and checked out a few of the shops and then found a place to relax, enjoy a few cold beverages and listen to the music. We ordered pizza for dinner and did some people watching, my favorite pastime in Italy. We certainly found this area of Rome to be far less busy than some of the high traffic tourist sights and everyone was moving at a much slower pace ( even the dogs were relaxed!)
