Our destination for the morning was the Campo dei Fiori Market in Piazza di Campo de Fiori, to check out their daily food market extravaganza. This is Rome’s oldest market and is held Monday through Saturday 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Whether you’re looking for fresh food to cook up for your stay or gifts to take home, you’ll find it here.
After we drooled our way through the market, I wanted to visit the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibit “Big Machines” just a street over. It was an exhibit of his machine inventions that had been re-created.
I wanted to go to the Trastevere District next, so we headed towards the river through the Farnese Piazza. Turning left at the Palazzo Farnese, we stopped at an usual looking church to peek inside. It was the Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini
Inside the marble and art was amazing!
The rain had started to pick up and we didn’t have on our rain gear, so we scooted into the first restaurant we saw, The Mirror Pizzeria, which had a covered patio.
Pouring and hailing really… what were we to do but drink some moreAfter a while, the rain let up and the sun started breaking through the clouds. It was nap time again so we charted our course back towards the Pantheon Inn.
The Spanish Steps and a tour of the Pantheon.
