About Massimo

I have been working in a bank for many years. I'm very fond of Music, football and cooking. Deeply in love with my home town I have chosen to live 20 years ago in this wonderful borough, Borgo Pio, which is really authentic and lively and where you can find anything you need enjoying the atmosphere of real Roma.

Massimo purchased this apartment in 2011

Lovely apartment near Vatican.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Francesca was great from the beginning to the very end. She was extremely helpful and even requested our taxi from the airport to her apartment.

The apartment was very lovely - clean and very comfortable for our family. It is located only a few minutes away from the Vatican. The apartment is in a great location and has many restaurants and stores nearby. Grazie Francesca!

Well situated cool apartment

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment, which is unbelievably convenient for the Vatican, and well situated for all the other sites of Rome. The area itself is charming with cobbled streets and bars and restaurants, and a feeling of being in a slightly less touristy area, in spite of it's closeness to the Vatican.The air conditioning coped well with the soaring temperatures (42C) and the flat is comfortable for 5, though the only suggestion I would make is for another armchair/comfortable chair in the living area. Would definitely recommend

Clean, comfortable and Well located apartment

  • 4 of 5

Don't let the minor inconveniences prevent you from renting this apartment. You are in the heart of Rome. The management was exceptionally helpful. The transportation they arranged around Rome for us went well beyond any expections, and the costs were more than reasonable. The inconveniences of no elevator (58 stairs) and squeaky floors might be difficult for some travelers.

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful few days in the Via Plauto apartment. Francesca's communication was excellent and she provided great assistance on tours, sightseeing and recommendations about the neighborhood. The apartment was just as described - convenient to sightseeing, metro, many restaurants, etc. We had plenty of room for my husband and I and three adult daughters. I hope to return soon!!

Great apartment. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful during our stay. From communication before we arrived, to having the taxi arranged for our departure to FCO was professional. A lot of room and good facilities. The neighborhood is perfect. Nice and quiet after all the visitors go "home" for the evening.

I cannot say enough positive things.

Grazie, grazie!
