Need help with evening itinerary in Rome

My husband & I plan to eat somewhere in the Jewish ghetto/Campo di Fiori area one night and then take Rick Steves' suggested evening stroll back to our hotel near the Spanish Steps. Can anyone tell me how long a long walk it is to the Campo di Fiori from Vecchia Roma (Piazza Campitelli)?

We wanted to use it (campo di Fiori) as a starting place on our stroll back to the Spanish Steps via the Piazza Navona, Piazza Capranica, Piazzo Colona, and the Trevi Fountain. So we already have a walk ahead of us.

Should we be eating closer to the Campo di Fiori like in Piazza Farnese?

Also, where is Camponeschi? Someome here had mentioned it to me but I can't find the info (address/atmoshpere/food)?

Thank you.

From the restaurant to Piazza de' Fiori it's about 750 meters (a 10-min stroll?)

Good evening, Liza
As Paulo states from the Pza Campitelli to the Campo di fiori is about a half
mile or 10 mins. walk .
From the Campo di Fiori to the Pza Navona, 5 mins..
From the Pza Navona via Rotunda to
the Pza Capranica another 5 mins.
From the Rotunda to the Pza Colonna
about 10 mins.
From the Pza Colonna to the Trevi about
5 mins. and the Spanish Steps, bottom
about 10 more mins beyoud the Trevi.
Would not change easing places and
sorry can not help you with Camponeschi.
Richard of La Grange Park, Il..

Dear Lisa:

Camponeschi is situated at 50, piazza Farnese (the square next to campo dei fiori on the southwest), its phone is 06 687 4927.

It is closed for lunch and on Sundays. Taking the meal al fresco with a view of the Palazzo Farnese is recommended. The full la carte meal will set you back 95,000 to 155,000 lire (a 13% service charge will be added).

All this information comes from the guide Michelin (Italy), I have not eaten there, but in my experience "Michelin" is quite reliable.

Enjoy your trip

Phil.
