Just around the corner from Campo de’ Fiori and across the street from Piazza Navona, there’s a small street called Via dei Baullari, which was home to some trunk makers for which the street is named. Ideally poised at the intersection of Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Via dei Baullari is a beautiful, historic palazzo where the vacation rental AP31 Baullari by Rome Accommodation is located.
The AP31 Baullari vacation rental features 5 bedrooms with 4 baths and can accommodate up to 15 guests.
Upon entering the apartment, the entrance vestibule opens directly onto the main living space on the right, the dining room straight ahead and a corridor that connects the bedrooms, baths, and kitchen on the left.
The living space features large, comfortable sofas for relaxing with a good book or some TV after a long day exploring Rome. The home offers SKY for international channels, dedicated sports channels, and channels in various languages. There is a small balcony off the living room that’s good for smokers or just sipping your morning coffee while watching the bustling street below.
The main dining room features a large wooden table that’s perfect for family dinners at home. You’ll find everything you need, like plates, glasses, silverware and tableware to set the table for your family or friends.
All 5 bedrooms are located along the corridor, as well as 2 of the baths. The other two baths are ensuite in the bedroom. This layout offers a lot of privacy for multigenerational families, separate families, or groups of friends traveling together.
The kitchen is also located off the main corridor and features all the modern conveniences of home: a full-size refrigerator, stove and oven, and dishwasher. As is common in most Roman homes, the washing machine is also located near the kitchen in a small enclosed balcony. The kitchen has a large table for less formal meals as well.

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. Grab breakfast at the Roscioli Bar (Piazza Benedetto Cairoli, 16) for the freshest croissants and breakfast pastries you’ll find anywhere else in the area.
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. Everything is sourced at km0, which means it’s seasonal and fresh.
Grab a beer at the restaurant Open Baladin (Via degli Specchi, 6), a glass of wine at Col de Sac (Piazza di Pasquino, 73) or a well-made craft cocktail at Pantaleo (Piazza di S. Pantaleo, 4).

We found the apartment to be exactly as advertised, very roomy, perfectly located, including a fully equipped kitchen with a good size, and a lovely, small balcony. It was perfect for us and all 9 of us were easily accommodated. We were supplied with sufficient information and the internet worked well. The hosts were always reachable by email and their representative for check-in met us as arranged. Our family was very satisfied and we are happy to recommend the Baullari apartment without reservation.
