Pompeus is an apartment that oozes millennia of history, it is located inside the building that at once was the Theatre of Pompeo, built by the general Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus in 50 BC, at the time of ancient glories and new splendors.
In Pompeus antiques surround you, high wood ceilings with real ancient Roman columns decorate this unique property, composed of a wide kitchen with an old wood table up to 12 seats, a living room with a single bed, a large open loft with a queen bed, one bedroom with two beds, and one bathroom with bathtub.
Pompeus is one of the busiest squares in the city, but incredibly quiet so that you can relax after long walks.
The present time merges to the past history, starting from when, before the XV Century, a vast field of flowers and some vegetable gardens lay in place of the square: it would be from the these ones that Campo de' Fiori derived its name, while, following the legend, it would descend from the name of Flora, the woman loved by Pompeo, who wanted to build near there his theatre.
The construction of Palazzo Orsini was a consequence of the renewal of the Parione district, bringing inevitably to the passage of important personalities, as well as to the presence of the thriving market of horses and lively shops and inns, while today it is the scenery of the picturesque market, that every morning delights us of its fruits, vegetables and handicrafts colorful show.
Campo de' Fiori, was long the place where the execution of judgments in death used to take place. Nestled behind Campo de' Fiori is the Sixteenth Piazza Farnese, with its outstanding Palazzo Farnese, one of the most beautiful buildings of the Eternal City. Just around the corner, Via Giulia, crossing the heart of Rome, offers to its visitors a unique scenario, among churches, ancient workshops, art galleries and aristocratic buildings.
The neighbourhood, always active and overheated, is today it is one of the most famous squares of the city, both for its traditional daily market in the morning and because it hosts the most typical restaurants and cocktail bars.
The area is well linked by many bus lines, and you will even be able to walk for less than 5 minutes and reach directly the most interesting, cultural and historic sites of Rome, like Piazza Navona, Largo Argentina, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Imperial Forums, Colosseum.
