Property description

Charming 70 square meter 2 bedroom apartment located on the first floor of a period building (no elevator) in the heart of the historical centre of Rome, around the corner from Campo de Fiori, Piazza Farnese and Piazza Navona.

Elegantly furnished and quiet and peaceful flat in the centre of town, the apartment is characterized by a beautiful wooden beamed ceiling and all-over "cotto toscano" flooring. The entrance opens directly onto the main living area, presenting a living room furnished with a sofa bed (queen size) facing the TV cabinet, and a dining table with 6 chairs. The kitchen, albeit not an eat-in kitchen, is fully equipped with all necessities including a dishwasher and microwave oven.

The sleeping area offers two bedrooms, of which the master bedroom complete with queen bed and the second bedroom with a single bed. The bathroom has a bathtub. The apartment is complete with air conditioning and independent heating. No house pets or smoking allowed. On request it is possible to have an additional bed (bed linen included).

Rione Regola is mainly a Renaissance quarter with very few signs of Ancient Rome. However the long street which crosses the whole rione from NW to SE follows an ancient Roman street and the straight street leading to Ponte Sisto does the same. It became a very densely populated area during the Middle Ages due to its proximity to the river which at the time was the only source of water. Most of the streets are still named after the artisans who had their workshops there. Regola was a sort of industrial district of Rome: Via dei Cappellari (hatters), Chiodaroli (nail-makers), Pettinari (comb-makers), Baullari (case-makers), Giubbonari (dress-makers), Vaccinari (fur-makers), Calderari (coppersmiths), indicate just some of the activities which were performed in Regola.

The rebuilding by Pope Sixtus IV in 1475 of Pons Aurelius, called after him Ponte Sisto and a few years later the opening by Pope Julius II, nephew of Sixtus IV, of a straight street linking Ponte Sisto with Ponte S. Angelo, changed in part the nature of Regola. Via Giulia, named after the pope, became the most important street of Renaissance Rome and Pope Paulus III Farnese built across the street his palace and his garden. Regola did not have large churches, the majority of them being churches belonging to a guild.

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I'm an architect, I love travel with my friends

Why the Owner Chose Navona:
The Balestrari Flat is situated on Via dei Balestrari, and is a comfortable studio in the heart of the historical district of Regola. Rome can easily be explored from this lovely apartment, which is situated in an 17th century building. Campo de Fiori is still a favourite place of many artists, musicians and actors. Its magical atmosphere - which enriched by historic buildings and picturesque streets and squares in - will leave hardly anyone untouched.
