About Francesca

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.

Francesca purchased this apartment in 2011

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!

Quiet neighborhood, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this apartment for it's comfort, charm and location. Being so close to the Vatican entrance allowed us to get into see St. Peter's with only a 10 min wait in security line. I could walk over in just a couple minutes to check the line length, which was often Huge! 4:15 in the afternoon turned out to be the best time. Even if you're not staying in this neighborhood for that reason, it is still a very nice location! Good grocery nearby, easy walk to lots of shopping, other sites and subway line. We walked, with kids, to the Pantheon with no problem. Comfortable beds, quiet sleeping, air conditioning worked very well when needed. Kitchen had everything we wanted. Francesca did a fabulous job of arranging private taxi transportation for us-- we had 5 adults and 2 small children. We paid 65 euros for Mercedes van, driver waiting for us at the airport, put in our own car seats (although they would have brought them). Excellent! The apartment rooms are a little smaller than they look in the photos, but still plenty for us. The tourist crowds in Rome were so big this time.... this apartment is a Great retreat! I would definitely rent it again.

We had a wonderful time staying at this flat that was so close to transportation and everything that we were looking for. The condo was spacious and very clean. It easily housed us and our three older children and giving us ample room and all the comforts we were looking for. Francesca was amazing to work with, helping us with transfers and guidance to make our stay in Rome run smoothly allowing us to just enjoy. Would definitely love to come back.

Beautiful apartment with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

5 of us (a group of friends in our 20s) stayed at the apartment and we had plenty of space. The apartment is well kept with nice furnishings, and is in a nice neighborhood. We were able to go everywhere we wanted by walking. I would definitely stay here again!
