Help¿ Worth going to Rome in August?

racheldebarcelona | Jul 5, 2009 02:34 AM

We have the possibility of doing an apartment exchange in Rome from August 15 - 22 and I need to decide whether it's worth it. No qualms about the lovely apartment in Trastevere.

The question is about food!
Are there any good produce markets open in mid-August? Is Campo dei Fiori market nearly empty ?
Are all the decent bakeries and delis closed for the month?
We don't need to eat out a lot but want to be able to get good produce, good cheese and deli products and good pizza bianca.
Not to mention espresso!
Please help me decide whether to go or not.
Thank you!
