The studio is located in the south east district "Centocelle" and only 5km from the city center, 15km from Ciampino airport; there is a large archaeological park where the Wright brothers experimented with the first flight in Italy one hundred years ago and still remains of the ancient Roman Aqueduct.

A variety of supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants and public transport all very closeby. I am very hospitable and attentive to the needs of the tourists, so I try to cater to their every need.

Interaction with Guests
I am respectful of privacy, but open to any communication if requested.
The neighborhood is full of shops , cafès and restaurants. Nearby a big historical park, a roman aqueduct, the mausoleum of Costantino mother's Elena, the catacombs of SS.Marcellinus and Peter.
You will not have a window to the Colosseum but know that the location is well connected to the city center by public transportation.
Other Things to Note
Please, once you have booked, tell me at what time you will check-in and check-out.
Be just respectful of property and privacy. The guests are not allowed to smoke inside the apartment, but they can do it in the garden. In the building, guests should pay attention to other residents, considering noise
The apartment is located in a quiet place not so far from the city center - we spent from 40 minutes (using light rail) to 1h30minutes (on Sunday in the evening using bus and metro) between the apartment and Termini station. The air is very humid in the apartment, so it was necessary to leave the windows open all the time (but for us it was not a problem because we visited Rome in late May) and kitchen towels and some dishes were greasy when we checked-in, so we had to wash them before using. In all other aspects it was a good place to spend a week in Rome. We liked the city very much.
In the rules of the house it is written that all guests have to leave the dishes clean. If it happened that some dishes were not spotless for the previous neglect of the guests, I apologize. I will check better at any checkout. I would have preferred anyway that the guest had told me that during the stay to provide for the replacement of new dishes. As moisture, being a house with garden around, I always recommend guests to air leaving a window open. In addition, anyway, the house is provided with a dehumidifier.
The flat was exactly like in the pictures. Francesco was a great host. Very nice and asked before we arrived when we would get in so that it would be ready for us and he would bet there when we arrived. Great directins to the flat, made finding it so easy. Francesco had maps and a book to help us with Rome as well. He had everything we needed and more. It was so nice to stay at a place like htis at the end of our 10 day trip to feel more at home and comfortable. I would highly recommened this place.
Francesco was amazing! Super accommodating, at all hours of the night. This was my first experience overseas, and he made us feel comfortable and at home. The place was beautiful and once you figure out the public transportation, it's very easy to access Rome. Highly recommended. Thanks for everything Francesco.
I definitely enjoyed my stay at Francesco's home. He is a very welcoming and pleasant host. I really appreciated that he didn't mind my late arrival and waited to show me the studio. The studio is cozy and has everything you might need for the stay. I loved the house and especially the garden- made it feel very "italian-like". I expected a bit more of the neighborhood, but it didn't bother me. seems like all the places in Rome, which are not the very center look the same. All in all I have only positive memories of my stay in the studio.
Francesco is kind and humor. He picked up us at the church near the house. He also prepared us breakfast and I love the toast with jam. The house is clean and with interesting paintings there. The traffic is convient with rome pass.
First of all, I must say that the instructions for finding the house were perfect, and we reached the place of destination without surprises. The flat is located not in the center, but on the other hand it is a quiet place. Mr.Africano was very respectfull, explained us everything and even leave us some snacks - we were very appreciated for it after a long journey. All the devices worked perfectly; due to it was not very hot outside, we used air-conditioner, which worked really well. So we were absolutely satisfied. Thanks a lot!
