    Pass By: Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, 00153 Rome Italy

    You will start your food tour from the historical area Trastevere, where will you admire the Santa Maria in Trastevere Basilica, which was probably the first official christian cult place in Rome.

    Stop At: Piazza San Cosimato, Piazza di San Cosimato Trastevere, 00153 Rome Italy

    From Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere you'll walk down to Piazza San Cosimato where is the first market of your tour: Piazza San Cosimato market is open since the beginning of ‘900 (it’s already mentioned as ‘covered market’ in a town council resolution in 1913) and many of the sellers actually descend from the first vendors and are up to the third generation of fruits, vegetables, cheese, fish or meat providers to the inhabitants of Trastevere or to the many tourists who prefer to rent a house (and therefore go food-shopping) instead of staying in a hotel.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Ponte Sisto, 00153 Rome Italy

    Walking through the same area you will cross Ponte Sisto, in front of Piazza Trilussa, where is the popular fountain called “fontanone di Ponte Sisto” (large fountain of Ponte Sisto): the fountain of Piazza Trilussa was built by pope Paul the Fifth Borghese (1605-1621) who commissioned it to Giovanni Vasanzio and Giovanni Fontana.

    Stop At: Piazza di Campo de' Fiori, 00186 Rome Italy

    Walking through Ponte Sisto until Campo de' Fiori, which is one of the oldest markets in town, if not the oldest, considering that in 1869 already Campo de’ Fiori was the preferred destination of a group of ‘farming ladies’ coming every day from the countryside to sell their herbs and vegetables, often just sitting and cleaning them in the square: piazza Campo de' Fiori is placed between piazza Navona and piazza Farnese and is the typical scenario of old Rome. The picturesque market that lives up the square is very typical of the city. It was moved here from piazza Navona in 1869, and it owes its name to a wonderful field full of flowers, a pasture for animals until the 15th century. The market has still wooden stands and the umbrellas protect the products from any weather. In 1440 the square was paved and around it were built many inns and hotels for pilgrims. This is why the image is almost unchanged compared to Alinari’s pictures of the 19th century. In the middle of the square is the 19th century statue of the philosopher Giordano Bruno, sent to the stake in 1600 because he was considered an heretic. Campo de' Fiori is an example of continuity between ancient and present Rome.
