From Pantheon to Campo de' Fiori


Pantheon, piazza Navona, Campo de' Fiori.

The Pantheon, the “Temple of all gods," is the Roman monument best preserved and it remains the most copied in modern architecture around the world. This monument goes back to the first century after Christ. The story is that at a certain point, in that exact location, Romolo, at his death, was lifted by an eagle and brought to the gods. It is pleasant to get lost walking through the antique roads surrounding the Pantheon, perhaps enjoying a sweet pause in one of the oldest ice-cream stores in Rome, gelateria Giolitti, in via del Vicario. Or perhaps tasting a caffe` in the equally famous bar of Sant'Eustachio.

Few steps away, you will enter one of the most famous squares in the world: piazza Navona. Originally, it was used are the center of games and sports.  Today, its fame has to do with three of the most beautiful fountains in the Eternal City: the Neptune Fountain (Bernini); the Moro Fountain and the Fountain of the Rivers.


Few steps away there is San Luigi dei Francesi, the church that hosts three masterpieces by Caravaggio; among the most mysterious that the artist left us.
In the surrounding areas, there are several important museums that are worth a visit, such as the Museum Barracco (corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 166) and the Museum Nazionale Romano Crypta Balbi (via delle Botteghe Oscure, 31).


Now we cross Corso Vittorio Emanuele and arrive to a square among the most visited and vivacious squares in the entire city: Campo dè Fiori. In the past, here was the place where death penalty were executed for heretics and criminals (the statue of Giordano Bruno in the square was erected in memory of the heretics killed in this square). Today, the square hosts a colorful market of fruits and vegetables in the morning, while in the evening it is a meeting point for young people that enjoy the numerous bars, wine shops and pubs around the square.
