Campo De'Flori

by jallenfayette

Does the market here have souvenirs? Are there other places for reasonably priced souvenirs? Thanks

Re: Campo De'Flori

by thirstytraveller

Campo de'Fiori market is more of a food market, but there are couple of stalls selling T-shirts, too. Reasonably-priced souvenirs can be found all over the city, anyway.

As Thirsty is saying, it is more of a food and flower marked.

I am not much of a souvenir buyer, but I recall a lot of shops selling souvenirs around the Trevi Fountain. Especially if you follow the street north(?) towards Pantheon. And they have superb gelato in the gelatoshop on the right hand corner of the fountain (facing the fountain). YUM!

That's like asking if Roma has any fountains. Of course, there are souvenirs to purchase, as well as all kinds of things that one may purchase in the piazza at Campo Di'Fiore. True, it has a fresh flower, fruit, and vegetable market in the center of the piazza, but restaurants and stores surround the square. Turn a corner of any street in the center of Roma and a souvenir store can be found. The prices are all over the place, so it is up to you to decide what you are looking for and if it is reasonable to you. I would not like to go to Roma or any other historic city in the world and be concerned about the cost of souvenirs. If you like, you buy.

They didn't seem to have a lot of souvenir type things there, but I did find a really nice hooded sweatshirt that had the word Italia embroided on the front. I can't remember exactly what I paid for it, but I know it was the cheapest I had seen in Rome and it's a really nice sweatshirt. You shouldn't have any trouble finding reasonably priced souvenirs. Just find the item you're looking for then watch for it at other stores so you can compare the prices. Unfortunately a lot of the tourist stores sell exactly the same products, but it is a good way to find the same item for less money. Have a great trip!

Re: Campo De'Flori

by thirstytraveller

Yes, the prices on the tourist shops are of course higher than on the streets. I'm not a big souvenir buyer either, I like to buy more practical things with the symbols of the places I visit. In Rome I bought 3 T-shirts (5 € each, they sell them everywhere) and an Italy-shaped bottle opener.

Travel Tips for Rome

ever wonder about all those fountains????

by monorailgold

When you go to Rome you expect to see ruins, churches, pizzarias, gelato stands, and souvenier shops. One thing you might not expect is the number of fountains that you see. They are everywhere! They are in the middle of piazzas, they are down side streets and even stuck on the sides of buildings. What a lot of people don't realize is that these fountains have fresh, clean, cold water shooting out of them. Unless there is a sign warning you "Not" to drink out of a fountain, you should take advantage of this resource. If you have a water bottle, carry it with you. You can refill it all day for nothing from these fountains.
Now there are 3 types of fountains. The decorative type, with the large sculptures in them, that are mostly for show. I.E.- Trevi fountain, the turtle fountain, the fountain of Neptune... Then come the other two types. These were made to drink out of. You have the "1 holer" and the "2 holer".. The difference is, with the one holer, you use your hand as a cup to get a drink. These have one spigot, like in a bathtub, that the water comes out of. The "2 holer" is a little trickier. It has two holes, one on the bottom and one on the top. To drink from this type of fountain, simply plug the bottom hole with your finger and the water will shoot out of the top hole like a good old fashioned drinking fountain. This makes it so much easier to get that quick drink and be on your way. A little warning though, dont stand in front of the fountain when you plug the bottom hole. The water shoots straight out and if you are in front of the fountain you will get wet. Stand to the side and you'll be fine. So, take advantage of the free water that rome has to offer, it's everywhere.

EUR

by aliante1981

While it may not be an absolute must if you are in Rome for just a day or two, EUR is interesting if you have time to spare.

It was built during the years of Mussolini (1930ies, to be precise) who wanted in the shape of EUR to recreate the glory of the Roman Empire.

This part of Rome is certainly not a repeat of the Colosseum and the Forums, but it's still an interesting attempt at modern revisitation of the ancient architectural ideas:))

Good Nightclub

by Jmill42 about Radio Londra Caffe

This place is one of those "slash" places. Part restaurant / bar / pub / club. Whatever you want to call it, it is a good time. This place was jam packed with a bunch of crazy Italians and tourists. Thats what my guidebook said, thats what it was. They have drink specials late into the night, which I found other clubs did not do. The snack food was not worrth writing home about. Give it a pass by eating before you go out.

Also, they will try and make you buy a "membership" pass for the year, for 5 Euro. If you aren't too big of a group, I am sure that you will be able to talk your way out of it like we did.

It is located in Trastevere, so its a bit of a hike out, but worth it in the end.

First dinner in Rome - Vatican side

by karenincalifornia about Ristorante L'Antico Porto

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We had just arrived in Rome after crossing the Adriatic by ferry, driving across Italy, visiting Pompei and finally making our way up to Rome. We were hot, tired and very, very hungry.

The restaurant was superb. My family enjoyed the seafood and the atmosphere was wonderful - not too noisy and very authentically Italian.

One of the great sites to visit in Rome

by MaryRoseGaughan

My favorite place to visit in Rome is San Pietro in Vincoli or the Church of St. Peter in Chains. It contains one of Michelangelo's great masterpieces, the Statue of Moses, which was to be the centerpiece of a massive 47-statue, free-standing funeral monument for Pope Julius II with horns on the head of the statue. The horns are meant to symbolize the radiance of the face of Moses. The church is very close to the coliseum and is an easy walk. It is on the western side of the Esquiline Hill. The church was built by the Empress Eudoxia in the 5th century (432-440). The Empress's purpose in having the church constructed was to provide a place to honor the chains from St. Peter's imprisonment that she had collected from Jerusalem and Rome. The chains are contained in a glass case near the main altar. Michelangelo's Moses is so breathtaking because it is so beautiful. The Moses sits between St. Rachel who represents the contemplative life and Saint Lia who represents the active life. There is no fee to enter this church, so it can be enjoyed by everyone.
