Just five minutes from the city train station, looking at the ancient city center from the hill top, few minutes from the Vatican and Cavalieri Hilton Hotel you will have much more than a room.
The comfort of a beautyful penthouse with wide exclusive roof top terraces and patio, and a wonderful view of Rome centre just below.
The room is sunny and furnished with doule bedroom, private bathroom with comfortable shower, fast internet wifi connection, Tv led hd, air conditioner.
The area is residential and furnished with all services and transportation within walking distance. Both bus and urban train within 100 meters
From the house you are connected to Vatican, Piazza Risorgimento, Piazza Cavour, Castel Sant'Angelo and Prati shopping area with a 10 minutes bus ride, two stops from Saint Peter's Church by metro, three from Trastevere. It's also easy to reach Piazza Navona and most attractive central sites taking the bus in front of the house, or bycicle through the centre within two miles. Then, when at home, relax, privacy and a kind hospitality. The best place for sunrise and sunset
The chef-host Francesco will be glad to offer all information and suggestions about artistic venues and activities.
For those who are interested in getting deeper into the historical, artistic and fun aspects of the city, aswell as those who are interested in a dive into the culinary knowledge and tradition, ask me for a professional tour-guide or for a custom cooking class, or
go to walkwithpete or rhomechef
The neighbourhood Balduina was built on the hill beside the Vatican City and the area where once were the Saint Angel Castel's meadows.
along the last part of the "via franchigena", the medieval route from Canterbury Cathedral to Saint Peter's Church.
with the good season is a perfect location for bike-Touring.
Daytime is well served every fifteen minutes with the metro line fr3, one stop from vatican museums.
at night it will be convenient to take a taxi for an averagely 10 minutes ride from the centro storico.
My wife and I had a great experience at Francesco's Penthouse. Francesco is an amazing, very kind and super-friendly host.
Before arriving he contacted us to give us some suggestions and advice for our trip, which were very helpful and informative.
The 5th floor penthouse with an elevator, has a terrace overlooking the cupola of the Vatican, and is spacious with a comfortable bed , and a clean private bathroom. The neighborhood is nice and quite. Around the corner you can catch the bus and in 10 minutes your in Vatican City, where you can start your Roma tour. We were serve every morning a continental breakfast by Francesco.
We highly recommended this penthouse, because it was well above our expectations, and we felt like we were staying at an old friends place.
We will definitely stay there again.....
We had a great time staying with Francesco!
He was extremely friendly and accommodating, offering us drinks upon our arrival and homemade food! He even left us pastries for breakfast in the morning.
The apartment is very nice and the terrace is a lovely place to sit out and just enjoy the view. It is a little far from the main part of the city but taking the train is fairly simple and cheap.
Great host and cook... wish we could have stayed longer!
FANTASTIC!!! FUN!!! FABULOUS!!! MUST MUST MUST STAY!!!!
it was our first and most wonderful airbnb experience.. Francesco and his Mama was fantastic, warm, carling, loving and just simply WONDERFUL !!!! the neighbourhood was great and accessible.. lovely place to just walk around.. we stayed for a month..and enjoyed every moment.. the private terrace is huge and the view is spectacular.. it is baby friendly and my son had a blast.. Zia Anna made our stay even better as she was always there to tell us about everything we needed to know.. she welcomed us to her home in the country and it was the most beautiful place we'd ever seen.. we had the most wonderful experience at ROMA
Thank you so very much for everything!!!!

Francesco's room was perfect for us, and Francesco was very helpful and always prompt in responding to our questions. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood with nice views of the city from the rooftop terrace. It was easy to reach from the airport and the nearest Metro station is less than a 15 minutes walk away. We mostly walked (there are nice restaurants and cafes nearby as well); it took us 15-20 minutes to get to St. Peter's and the Vatican Museum. This was our first trip to Rome. We so enjoyed our stay, and have no reservations recommending Francesco's place. Rome is a beautiful city and we found Italians very warm and welcoming even though we spoke very little Italian. We hope to return soon.
I stayed almost one month at Francesco's place. The apartment is great, the room is very nice and cleaned as well as the whole apartment. You have a wonderful view over Rome and Francesco is a fantastic host.
The place is located in a nice area close to public transport and the city centre.
So if you are thinking of going to Rome book your accommodation at Francesco :-)
Francesco was a great host who was very welcoming with an awesome food platter on arrival. He also helped us with finding transport to get to the places we wanted to go. The bed was comfortable and you have a large outdoor entertainment area which is private. Shower and toilet was just for our use and right next door to the bedroom. He has a nice cat but if your not a cat person it may not be the place for you. We were only 2 blocks from the train station. Internet wifi was good and fast and you have cable tv if you choose which was nice. We loved the dinner he prepared for us on the final night which was something he didn't have to do but wanted to, awesome, thank you!
I was in Francesco's room 3 nights, I spent very nice time there. Francesco it's a very nice person, very good cook. The room it's nice and clean. I suggest this place
Excellent host and cozy little room. Francesco also had a nice portable pool on his rooftop terrace - very refreshing on a summer night. He took care of breakfast and even offered to prepare dinner. We had a very pleasant experience.
Thanks to Francesco for our wonderful stay in Rome. It is a good host and a great cook. We feel very comfortable with him. Room terrace is magnificent, and incredible view of Rome. Thank you Francesco.
With best wishes for success:
Tanya and Zlatan
un esperienza molto positiva,anche se per pochissimo tempo (lavoro) sia per la stanza con tutto il necessario e un più per il terrazzo e la magnifica vista su Roma, un grazie ancora per la cortesia e la simpatia di Francesco, sicuramente ci torneremo per un soggiorno piu lungo e vacanziere. lo consiglio veramente a tutti. Ciao
