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
Interaction with Guests
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.
E' richiesto il rispetto della quiete del vicinato, nelle ore notturne e in intrata e in uscita dall'alloggio.
E' consentito l'uso della cucina per la colazione e della sala comune durante il giorno.
E' anche possibile concordare pranzi o cene a tema o su richiesta e consumare nella privacy del superattico o in compagnia nell'area comune.
Très bon accueil de la part de Francesco, on a passé un bon séjour. L'appartement est plutôt spacieux, mais la présence d'un chat est à notifier. L'appartement est un peu excentré mais il est bien desservi (20 mins du centre en bus)
Francesco was awesome to let us check in pretty late and let us have a beautiful penthouse basically to ourselves! The kitchen was clearly suited for taller people, but I loved being able to use it to make soup during our stay there. He is very friendly and so is his cat Fiasco! It is a gorgeous penthouse and we were incredibly comfortable here. Would recommend highly if you're looking for a nice quiet place with a beautiful view of Rome.
Had a fantastic time staying at Francesco's. Such a lovely host and in great proximity to many of the major features in Roma but particularly the vatican! I never once caught trains in Rome as I was able to walk everywhere from Francesco's.
Breakfast was great, the room was great, and the cat Chaos is very cute :)
Enjoy! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Francesco IS THE BEST...His house is amazing...beautiful, super clean, comfortable, the best view, a huge terrace, plants, etc everything the best quality, you can feel a 5 stars hotel ...I felt like in my home, I arrived from a long trip and he cooked the best pasta ao pesto that I and my son have in ours lives...of course he is an international chef ....the house is so great that you prefer stay at home than go out...WE LOVED BE THERE and I'm strongly suggest this penthouse.
I found my place in Rome....Thanks so much Francesco
Non ho avuto modo di poter conoscere bene Francesco ma l'accoglienza è stata ottima. La camera è fantastica con il proprio bagnetto nel quale l'ospite ha ogni comodità, dagli asciugamani, phon, frigorifero con acqua, macchinetta per caffè espresso e The. Il terrazzo è tranquillissimo e per i più calorosi come me è un posto dove rilassarsi e prendersi un po' di aria fresca. Ringrazio Francesco per le colazioni offerte!!
The place is ideally located not too far from the Vatican. Francesco was very nice and very helpful. The room was small but nice with a huge terrace for us overlooking the city.
Rome was an amazing city and staying with Francesco made it that much better. He greeted my girlfriend and I upon arrival with cold drinks and showed us our room. It was private with a personal bathroom, mini fridge, huge bed, television, and a private balcony with a nice view. Francesco was helpful and always there when needed and he even cooked a few nights (he's an amazing cook). Basically his home is your home and you're treated like family. There was a nice kitchen we could use and it was fully stocked (again, Francesco was very generous and told us to help ourselves) and the washing machine was also a godsend in the heat. Although it's a little outside of Rome, the Vatican and metro are easily reached in no more than a twenty minute walk. There are great restaurants all around and being away from the tourist-y ones is a bonus. But the best part was Francesco. He was friendly, smart, and helpful. Some of the best nights were just spent sitting with him, sharing a drink while eating and discussing politics. If we are to return to Rome, there's no question we'd stay here again.
Bonus: Francesco has an awesome cat named Fiasco. So cute!

Mi chiamo Francesco, sono nato a Roma e ho vissuto in questa città la maggior parte del mio tempo, ma alcuni dei miei viaggi sono stati rivoluzionari, come dovrebbe essere ogni viaggio Sono un appassionato di cucina e cucino professionalmente. Amo soprattutto il tempo libero, i contatti e le relazioni, la politica ..l'economia.. lo sport.
Hi, my name is Francesco, I have born in Rome, where I have spent the most part of my life, but some of my travels have been revolutionary, as all travel should be. I have a passion for coocking and I do it professionally. I love spare time and trips, sociality, politics and economics... sports (only the practice, not watching on the tv), music .. theatre.
My ideal travel is to mess around with locals, join another culture through social activities aswell as social dining.
