Top 20 Parione, Rome vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Parione is graced with two of Rome's finest piazzas. Navona, with its stunning Bernini sculptures and towering Borromini church, dominates the headline, but the pleasures to be found in the nearby Campo de' Fiori - the name translates as Field of Flowers - are multiple in their simplicity. The square is watched over by the brooding figure of Giordano Bruno, who was executed for heresy on this spot in 1600. Today he oversees a bustling market selling fruit, vegetables, cheese, Puglian pottery, pasta of varying quality and, of course, flowers, mostly to tourists, although the locals can be spotted in the queue at their beloved Campo de' Fiori bakery. The streets around are filled with charming boutiques and fabulous restaurants. Ditirambo is comfortably one of the best new restaurants in the area, but for those looking for old-school charm, decades of tradition and a room full only of Italians, look no further than Settimio al Pelligrino, serving food prepared by the legendary Teresa. Once done, get a drink at Argot, a basement speakeasy hidden behind a plain glass door.
