“Piazza di Spagna, at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, is one of the most famous squares in Rome. It owes its name to the Palazzo di Spagna, seat of the Embassy of Spain to the Holy See. Nearby is the famed Column of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the middle of the square is the famous Fontana della Barcaccia, dating to the beginning of the baroque period, sculpted by Pietro Bernini and his son, the more famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini. SPANISH STEPS The imposing 135-step staircase was inaugurated by Pope Benedict XIII during the 1725 Jubilee; it was released (thanks to French loans granted in 1721–1725) to connect the Bourbon Spanish embassy (from which the square takes its name) to the Church of Trinità dei Monti. At the right corner of the Spanish Steps rises the house of the English poet John Keats, who lived there until his death in 1821: nowadays it has been changed into a museum dedicated to him and his friend Percy Bysshe Shelley, displaying books and memorabilia of English romanticism. At the left corner there is the Babington's tea room, founded in 1893.”

“The Trevi Fountain is the largest and one of the most famous fountains in Rome. Built on the facade of Palazzo Poli by Nicola Salvi, the competition launched by Pope Clement XII in 1731 was initially won by the French sculptor Lambert-Sigisbert Adam but later the task passed to Salvi: it is said that the change was due to the fact that the pontiff did not want to entrust the work to a foreigner; instead, another version explains that Adam had to return to France. Begun in 1732, it was completed thirty years later by Giuseppe Pannini; stylistically it belongs to the late Baroque.”

Point of Interest
“The square occupies the area of the ancient stadium of Domitian (Circo Agonal), with a capacity of 30,000 spectators, where the Romans carried out their sporting and competitive activities. The fountains of Piazza Navona Undoubtedly, the most fascinating elements of Piazza Navona are the three fountains built during the mandate of Gregorio XIII Boncompagni: fountain of the Four Rivers In the center of Piazza Navona is the Fountain of the Four Rivers, designed by Bernini in 1651. The four statues of the fountain represent the most important rivers of the time: the Nile, the Danube, the Ganges and the Río de la Plata. In the center of the square there is a 16 meter high obelisk, which was previously located in the Circus of Maxentius on the Via Appia. Fontana del Moro Created by Giacomo della Porta and perfected by Bernini, who later added dolphins, the Fontana del Moro was initially known as the Snail Fountain. It is located in the southern part of the square. Fountain of Neptune Like the Fontana del Moro, that of Neptune was also designed by Giacomo della Porta. It was abandoned from its creation until 1873, when the work was finalized by Zappalà and Della Bitta. Curiosity Until the mid-nineteenth century, in summer the water outlets of the three fountains were closed and the central part of the square flooded, becoming "The Lake of Piazza Navona". A pleasant area The square is surrounded by bars and restaurants and is surrounded by a pleasant atmosphere during the day. It is a very lively area where, at any time of day, you can attend performances by street artists such as magicians or dancers. Among the buildings that delimit the square are the famous Palazzo Doria-Pamphili and the splendid Church of Santa Agnese.”

“Campo de' Fiori Square was a flower garden Fiori in Italian means 吐lowers". Until about 1400 years ago, this square had been a vegetable and flower garden. That is the origin of the name. In another legend, one of the antique Roman politicians "Pompey the Great" had had a girlfriend "Flora", and her name had become the name of the square... It had flourished as a luxury area In 1456, Pope Caristus III ordered a development of this area Parione district. And this pavement square was born. After then, some important buildings like the palace of Orsini Family (Palazzo Orsini) were built around this square and it started to flourish. After these circumstances, this square became a gathering place for those in power like nobilities and ambassadors. For their convenience, a colorful market started to be held twice a week (Monday and Saturday). Near the square, hotels, restaurants and artisan shops began to gather and this area became a commercial and cultural center in Rome. Black period in the history, freedom of thought was prohibited The Campo de Fiori was also known as a place of execution during some historic period. On 17 February 1600, Giordano Bruno, a philosopher and a Dominican friar was sentenced to the stake here. He argued that the universe was infinite (at that time it had been considered finite) and defended the heliocentric theory of Copernicus. He had been sentenced to a heresy charge. Since after that he would not withdraw his theory, he became a martyr in this place. Then his bronze statue was made was built in the center of the square in order to remember this unfortunate history (in 1869, by Ettore Ferrari). After 1869, the square became a beautiful vibrant market. In 1943, here was used for shooting of a famous film "Campo de' fiori" of Anna Magnani and Aldo Fabrizi. Just looking at the markets makes you exciting! If you want to see a morning market in Rome, here this "Campo de' Fiori" would be the best. Colorful vegetables and fruits, beautiful flower shops as the name of the square shows, processed ham and cheese to enjoy at your hotel, as well as cloths and accessories for souvenirs and also general merchandise, you can find all kinds of goods in this market. Among them, a wine stopper with a decorative glass was especially attractive for me. It's made of stainless steel and is very solid, but costs only 5 euros! If you go to buy something like this at one of the stores in the city center, it would cost more than double price. After all, the market is for normal people. Why don't you use it to find some souvenir? It's also recommended to purchase souvenirs! In addition, they sell also spices by weight, cute shaped bottled limoncello (lemon liqueur) and balsamic vinegar, traditional boxed cakes etc. When you feel hungry, let's order an instant panini at one of meat shops there. All locals are enjoying this panino at the feet of the statue of Giordano Bruno. At the entrance of the Campo de' Fiori, on the north street, there is a bakery named "Forno Campo de Fiori". They sell fresh breads and pizzas at the next workshop. Its good fragrant of baked wheat attracts many people and invites into the shop. Let's try to taste their breads. It's simple and delicious. (Address: Piazza Campo Dei Fiori 22) Be careful while you're enjoying Near the square, there are also many boutiques and antique shops. Here is the best route for leisurely walks. Plus, there are lots of neat and delicious restaurants, too. You can enjoy a slow tourism. The market is vibrant and full of tourists, but just don't forget to keep your purse. It's easy to be targeted when you are concentrating on pictures. After dark, in this area many popular pubs start open and a lot of young people are gathering. Late at night here becomes a little bit chaotic with young guys and policemen... However, don't worry if it is about dinner time. It's very safe.”
