A bit of the history of ‘Field of Flowers’

‘Field of Flowers’ is known in history for having been the place of punishments and executions. In fact, the large statue in the center of the square is the philosopher Giordano Bruno, who was burned as a heretic in 1600. The philosopher is portrayed with his face pointed towards Vatican City, as if giving a warning signal to the Church. Although it may just be a coincidence, the ‘Field of Flowers’ is the only historic square in Rome where there is a church. Also read What to visit near Rome? The best roundtrips from Rome.

The Street Market

From the second half of 1800 onwards, the lively and colorful Street Market is held here every day, where it is still possible to recognize the soul of the people of Rome amidst the shouts of vendors and colorful crowds of buyers. At sunset, the ‘Field of Flowers’ becomes a favorite hangout for nightlife, densely populated and loved by young people, both Italian and foreign, due to the many locals in the square and its surrounding streets.

During the Middle Ages, this place was reduced to a meadow on the left, and it is from this that it was probably named. Only in the late 1400s it was officially urbanized by the popes as the only road to the Vatican from the south. The first road to get there was Via del Pellegrino, which got its name because it was the main pilgrimage road to the Vatican. Read also What to do in Rome in 1 Day?

Why ‘Field of Flowers’?

The name ‘Field of Flowers’ comes from the fact that in the Middle Ages it was an abandoned field, but with the intervention of the popes it grew in importance and became something comparable to the Roman Forum, in other words, a center of public life. A bustling street with 16th century palaces that preserve the frescoes on the façades and that must be admired. Also read Which are the main markets in Rome?

The Attractions of the ‘Field of Flowers’

This road, among others, offers several shopping opportunities, with boutiques, bookstores, art galleries and a few surviving workshops that resisted globalization. And if you’re hungry, choose from cafes, bars and restaurants. Always on Via del Pellegrino, you will be intrigued by a passage hidden by scaffolding. It is the Arch of Acetari. Upon entering, you’ll find a small courtyard, surrounded by red houses with outside stairs and porches, and it’ll look like you’re in a medieval village. An oasis of tranquility, where some vines climb along the walls of the houses; to the right, the square, lit by the sun and dominated by silence.

I recommend that you personally experience the peace that reigns in this precious little corner of Rome. After enjoying a few minutes of silence here in the Rome of the past, you can move on. After reaching the end of Via del Pellegrino, you can return to Farnese Square, or continue towards Via Giulia and continue the walk to other wonderful places in Rome.

Hotel I suggest near the Historic Center

If you are passionate about art and would like to stay in the center where you can move around walking, as well as having countless possibilities for places to have lunch / dinner or a snack, I advise you to stay in the historic center. Regions near the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forum and the Villa Borghese, Piazza Spagna and Piazza Navona can be considered as “historic center”. These are the most expensive areas, but you will be close to everything, literally!

Hotels that I suggest near the San Giovanni Region

For those who want to find cheaper alternatives in quiet areas, but at the same time close to the means of transport to the center, I suggest the region of San Giovanni or Monti (near the metro stations San Giovanni, Castro Pretorio and Circus Massimo) – which it is a more residential neighborhood; therefore, more economical and quiet! And with just 15 minutes by subway you will be in the center too!

Hotels that I suggest in Trastevere

For those who prefer to “taste” authentic and characteristic Rome, there is nothing better than booking a hotel in Trastevere (on the outskirts of the city’s historic river), full of typical Roman history and traditions, known for the tortuous streets of sampietrini stones and the centers medieval style housing.

The neighborhood is in the historic center and to the right of the Tevere River, in the midst of a spectacular landscape, where each visitor can observe the countless churches and squares (such as Santa Maria in Trastevere). In addition, this neighborhood offers several local restaurants and canteens for those who want to try typical Roman cuisine.
