If you’re looking for your own corner of Rome to accommodate all your family and friends, Baullari III’s 6 bedrooms and 3 baths is big enough to host an army but befit for a queen.
Ideally poised at the intersection of Via del Corso and Via dei Baullari, the AP27 Baullari III vacation rental by Rome Accommodation is located in a bustling part of the city that’s at the center of the action.
The historic open-air market of Campo de’ Fiori is just down the street; or head in the other direction and you’ll run right into Piazza Navona. Within 10 minutes walking you can cross the river into the heart of Trastevere. In 15 minutes, take a breather on the Spanish Steps or go to town on Rome’s fashionable Via Condotti. However you spend your day, at the end of it retreat to your tranquil oasis with all your family and friends.
The Baullari III apartment is located on the 3rd floor, serviced by an elevator. Upon entering the apartment, you’re immediately greeted with a gracious entrance vestibule, flanked on one side by the first 2 bedrooms. The bedrooms, a triple and a double, are each characterized by their own calm hue and a large, luminous window overlooking the piazza below.
At the end of the vestibule, you arrive at the heart of the apartment, a central living space with sofas and flat screen TV. From the living room, 2 more bedrooms, the kitchen, and one of the apartment’s 3 baths spoke off.
One of the 2 bedrooms is a family suite, with a connecting children’s room, featuring 2 single beds, and a full ensuite bath.
The eat-in kitchen was cleverly designed to not only offer ample space for cooking but also boasts a long 3+ meter long, glass table to seat up to 12 guests all together. It’s the perfect place for sharing that special meal together at the end of the day.
Off the kitchen you’ll find the last bedroom, with 2 single beds and the third ensuite bath.
The design of the apartment takes inspiration from the colorful views from the windows and mixes modern design elements with the apartment’s beautiful antique details, like its wooden-beam ceilings and floors.
The apartment at one point was used as studio space for a local art college, hosting young artists and their muses. In fact, some of their sketches for wall frescoes were kept as a nod to the past, providing decoration to one of the bedrooms.

Before the beginning of the 15th century, not much existed where Campo de’ Fiori sits due its locating in the Tiber River’s flood zone. However the piazza also lies on the walking path taken by the Pope when he travels from the Vatican to Basilica St. John the Lateran, which gave it more importance.
The space went through many transformations over the centuries and served as a place for public executions. On February 17, 1600, philosopher Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for heresy and his works were forbidden by the church. A statue commemorating his contributions and sacrifice to free thought earned him a monument on the site where he was burned.
Since 1869 a daily fruit and vegetable market has taken place in Campo de’ Fiori, which continues to this day. Each day until about 1pm, local vendors selling fresh produce, flowers, nuts, oil, pasta, and more take over the piazza. The afternoon sees a transformation from tents to a large open space, completely clearing any trace of the morning’s market.
While Campo de’ Fiori has become very popular with tourists, a few businesses maintain their history and integrity for offering the best. At the far north end of the piazza, the historic Forno di Campo de’ Fiori (Vicolo del Gallo, 14, fornocampodefiori.com) continues dishing up some of the best pizza, breads, and pastries in Rome. At lunch time you’ll find it packed with local school children and business owners satisfying their midday appetites. Another great local bakery, Roscioli (Via dei Giubbonari, 21, www.salumeriaroscioli.com/restaurant) is also a local favorite at the other end of the piazza. Their restaurant and wine shop has seating and a great selection of Italian wines to pair with their savory baked goods.
Looking for a comfortable place to grab a coffee, a sandwich, or a cocktail with a friend? Cafe Barnum (Via del Pellegrino, 87, www.barnumcafe.com) is one of the most popular haunts by ex-pats and locals alike. A hip, comfortable environment, free wifi, and a local vibe makes it a great go to for business meetings and chill hangouts.
Follow the Slow Food movement? One of Rome’s only certified Slow Food restaurants Hosteria Grappolo d’Oro (Piazza della Cancelleria, 80, hosteriagrappolodoro.jimdo.com) is located a block from Campo de’ Fiori, and just across the street from Baullari III. Everything is sourced at km0, which means it’s seasonal and fresh.

Great value for money. Very easy to book. Prompt response to questions. Very thorough instructions and email information. Very friendly welcome. Map and list of local conveniences was very helpful. Brand new apartment and very clean with soap, toilet paper and cleaning products provided, which was a bonus. Beautifully decorated house, everything was in working order. Excellent apartment, great location and great service from Rome Accommodation. Will definitely recommend to others and use again when in Rome.
