We are staying at the Campo di Fiori. It is centrally located – but even better there are several artists and tiny shops on our road and at the end of our road, there’s a market every day. It’s fresh fruit, vegetables, tshirts… At night the market clears away and makes room for great outdoor drinking – most of it in the bars. A few BYOB types in the square. Lots of buskers – admittedly I don’t many would make the first cut on Italy’s Got Talent – but fun nonetheless.

Patrick, Michael and I enjoyed a drink and appetizer Wednesday night. The joint was jumping – starting at about 9:00 – and definitely still cooking at midnight when we threw in the towel.

Patrick noted at the brilliance of the urban planning. It does make for a good vibe. There were people of all ages. You could compare it to Temple Bar in Dublin – although Temple Bar has much more a feel of Stag Party or just on leave. Our piazza is fun but not rowdy or sloppy.
