The space

A charming apartment for experts entirely wood made by the sure touch of a local old craftsman – Sir Fausto – who lived and worked in “Campo de’ Fiori” area at the beginning of the twentieth century. The apartment is especially cozy because of the recent remodelling.
The “Bollo” is a magic, enchanting place; It will be like living on a boat in the heart of the city, far from any noise even you are less than one hundred meters far from Campo de’ Fiori where every morning (except on Sunday), starting from the dawn, you can see the most characteristic and coloured market of flowers, fruit and vegetables in the city.
The “Bollo” is a perfect lovely nest, enriched by its ancient vault-ceiling, the original sixteenth century peperino-marble capitals (peperino is a volcano tuff which is grey with black little grains like peppergrains; this kind of stone is found in the Albani hills near Rome), the porthole-windows – in peperino marble as well – which belonged to the ancient fifteenth century convent, basis of the recent building.
The apartment consists of one room perfectly acclimatized (air conditioned) and endowed with an elegant cooking alcove.

Free wifi Internet connection!

The flat can accommodate up to four people; the two sleeping areas furnished with refined upholstery and both fitted with a comfortable double bed are positioned on two typical wooden lofts which look each other, reached by two staircase-wardrobes that are in harmony with the open space.
The apartment is situated on the ground floor facing a characteristic courtyard where you can see a nice little fountain. Completing the loft a modern dining-table and a comfortable sofa. The bathroom, like the whole floor of the house is made of pricks. It contains a shower and is well stocked with everything that guests need (towels, a welcome kit of soap and shampoo).
The location of the apartment is exceptional as you are extremely close to all the classic sights of Rome. Castle Sant’Angelo, Saint Peter’s, Piazza Navona, Campo de’ Fiori and the Pantheon are all no more than an easy three minute walk.
Vicolo del Bollo goes from Via del Pellegrino (the ancient road travelled by the pilgrims who used to reach San Peter’s) to via dei Cappellari (where still today the last roman real carpenters go on doing woodwork).
The toponym of the lane comes from the “Ufficio del Bollo” established in 1608 by a notification which ordered the jewellers to work just pure gold and silver and masters of the mint to check and brand (or seal) the works. The jewellers lived in via del Pellegrino; after finishing their works they used to go “al Bollo” right to seal their works. At the beginning of the lane there is a sacred image which is protected by a glass.

It's a boat-house so It is ideal for couple, friends, family with kids! Not ideal for older or people with mobility problems.

The perfect starting point to best enjoy the best of the eternal city!

5 stars for the location alone. Very tight quarters for a petite family of four... charming non the less. Great launching pad to explore Roma on foot or by bus.
