My passions are:

  • Music
  • Food
  • Arts

I have travelled to: London, Barcelona, Paris, Provence, Japan, Hammamet, Corsica, California, Prague, Germany, Athens, Netherlands, Belgium and... all over Italy!

I love my city because: it's romantic, decadent and... mysterious. It always hides old new places to discover!

My idea of a great trip is: When I travel around, I always look for local habits and places. A great trip is when you can go around a city like a local.

Great experience!
Francesca’s home is so warm and welcoming, the food was delicious and tasty, Francesca is a charming hostess.
Dinner was wonderful!
We had dinner last night with Francesca! She was absolutely a pleasure and the food was unbelievable. It is a bit far from the city but such a unique experience that it was well worth it. Her place is so tiny and quaint and my husband, two teens also loved it. My daughter is a vegetarian and she carefully made sure each plate she served worked for her. Get out of the city and enjoy this experience. Thank you, Francesca!
Could have eaten in Rome
Nice food, plenty of decent wine, polite host.
For most is an 60 minutes tour with a bus from Rome center. We took a taxi costing 30 euro. Back it was 25 Euro.
Dinner with wine cost 37 Euro.
But I can't see the idea. Small apartment with no personal touch, shabby table and .... Just no personal touch and local touch to justified the time and expense. Host was nice and polite, however a bit tired.
