I love cinema, I'm passioned about this that is also my work, I'm working in photography. My name's is Francesco!
A wonderful place to see Rome. The apartment was clean, functional and comfortable. It was very convenient for accessing the metro to see all of the sites of Rome and it was within walking distance of the Vatican. I would stay here again in future trips.
Francesco's father met us at the apartment--very friendly and helpful. A bottle of wine was there for us along with some other goodies. The apartment is light and airy and well-located. We really enjoyed our stay there!
My husband and I and our 2 children spent 9 wonderful days in Francesco's charming apartment over Christmas 2013. It was our first trip to Rome and as soon as we arrived we felt immersed in the culture and life of this ancient city. Hearing the bells chime at the Vatican was a special highlight. The apartment is roomy and comfortable. I particularly enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen after a trip to the Trionfale Markets nearby (There is a market trolley in the pantry cupboard). Other local gems I found thanks to the Eat Rome App are Bonci "best Baker in Rome" on Via Luca Valerino and Fatamorgana for amazing artisan organic gelato on via G Bettolo. We also had a beautiful meal on Christmas eve at Romeo on Via Silla.
Francesco was a most gracious host leaving us with a few supplies and lots of good advice to get us going. His apartments is very well situated near the Vatican which we visited a number times over the Christmas period. It is also only a short walk to the metro and you can pretty much be anywhere in Rome in just a few short stops. My last piece of advice for anyone staying in this apartment is to make sure you check out the wonderfully eclectic vintage store right next door. I only discovered it late on our last night and wished I could have spent longer digging through the lovingly collected treasures. You are sure to find a unique souvenir of Rome here.
Très agréable séjour dans cet appartement parfait pour un couple et deux enfants: deux chambres et deux belles salles de bains. Propreté, linge de toilette, cuisine largement équipée avec le nécessaire pour le petit déjeuné (même une bouteille de lait au frigidaire à l'arrivée !! ). Le quartier est agréable résidentiel un peu en dehors du centre, à 10 min à pieds du métro, 15 min à pieds du Vatican. Il y a quelques restaurants sympathiques et raisonnables en prix autour de l'appartement. Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer le propriétaire mais avons été très bien accueillis par le père qui habite juste à coté;
Belle expérience à renouveler et recommander
Absolutely wonderful stay at Francesco' s place. Greeted on arrival by his Dad who was great and showed us around the apartment. Printouts about Romes attractions on table, bottle of wine in the kitchen. The place was clean, comfortable, attractive and only a few minutes away from the Vatican and lots of restaurants and the Metro to get anywhere else you want to.
We recommend Francesco and his place very much!
Nice stay in Francesco's place.very good location,very sweet apartment.we enjoyed a loooot!Francesco is very nice,provide many useful information for visit Roma.BTW,there is a very tasty pizza shop near the apartment.
I went to Rome with my parents and husband and needless to say had a fantastic time. Our stay at Francesco´s apartment added to the experience. Perfectly located, just 10min walk to the Vatican. Airy and bright with everything that you need, even a great choice of videos if you feel like putting your feet up for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Francesco was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early as we had a particularly early flight. He also left us some fresh milk and italian coffee to start our day off on the right food. I would highly recommend.
Francesco is a very nice guy, welcoming and helpful.
The apartment was fully equipped, 10 minutes walk from the metro, very close to vatican city just few minutes walk.
Near by theres a supermarket and many small shops, and many restaurants as well!
All in all we enjoyed our stay in rome and for sure we will come back again!
Our stay at Francesco´s apartment was a delighful experience. Spacious, airy and bright.; with everything we need. Wine, coffee and milk was prepared. We can wash our clothes even in the rainy day cause there were clothes rack we can use for drying inside the apartment. There were sofas for our group that we can sit together and chat after a day of visit. Wifi was fast so I can get some work done. It was just like home. Location is perfect and is; just 10min walk to the Vatican and metro, Local bus is half a block. Great restaurant, cafe and bakery within blocks. Very nice neighborhood, can mingle with the locals yet close to Vatican. Francesco is a great guy; from the time of inquiry to departing. He is very accommodating and helpful. He even took us to the airport for a lower fee so we don't have to worry about getting a taxi. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Thank you Francesco for everything. September 2013
Absolutely perfect place to stay. Could not have asked for anything better. We did not get to meet Francesco but his father Alfredo (very nice man) met us at the apartment and showed us all we needed to know to enjoy ourselves and feel at home while at the apartment. He also gave us information about the local area (ie: which buses to take to certain areas and good local restaurants etc). We would stay there again in a heartbeat and would recommend the accommodations to anyone that is considering it as part of their search. The apartment is well equipped for cooking necessities and close to many stores to buy fresh food. It is very conveniently located for travel around Rome - Ottaviano Metro station is only about 10-15 minutes walk away, and it will link you to wherever you need to go in Rome. There is not enough room to state the good about this apartment. All I can say to sum it up is book it, you won't regret it.
Gentile, educato, rispettoso e particolarmente simpatico.
Un' ottimo ospite e un' ottima persona.
Fantastic house in the center of Rome. Francesco is very kind.
Francesco is a very kind and cool person. Well behaved and also very interesting. He likes cinema, art, photography, music, reading. He is from Rome, and likes travelling. I know Francesco very well and you can trust him.
