Best Piazzas / Campos in Rome and Venice

Jump to last reply

DH and I celebrate a big anniversary this year, AND he's celebrating a big zero birthday. He's tentatively selected a week (plus the weekends on either side) in Rome and Venice, each of which we've visited several times, sometime in early October.

What we love to do on vacation is see and learn about art, history, culture and eat great regional cuisine. But we've also enjoyed, I've realized in reliving our European and U.S., trips, sitting in lovely public places at a cafe with a wine, beer or coffee, and people-watching. Somehow, the best memories are of little kids playing, but really, anything can be interesting.

So for you experienced travelers, what are some piazzas (Rome) and campos (Venice) that might be a bit out of the way, and that would be good for cafes and people-watching? Assume that we know the obvious (San Marco, Piazza Navona, Campo Santa Maria Formosa, etc.) i'm thinking it might be a good focus for our trip - each day, we'll visit a different new piazza/campo and explore that area.

I'd love to hear the replies, and any good memories you have, too.
