About Me
Fausto, a degree at Bologna University in Philosophy and one at Modena University in Mathematics, is a teacher at Computer Science Department of Modena University. He also works as a professional software developer. He lives in Modena with his family, twenty minutes from Bologna. Fausto and his wife Titti will welcome you personally at the apartment, introducing the surroundings and the city. They have been living in Emilia Romagna region for generations, and can help you understand how things work here, or tell you where to find a language class or learn to make home made pasta. Speaking English, a little of French and Germany, and of course Italian. For references, they have very good friends in California and NYC.

Our hosts, Fausto & Tiziana, were delightful and very accommodating. They live right across the hall and made sure we had what we needed. This location is perfect! Quiet neighborhood within a few minutes of walking to everything. This apartment is in Modena Centro and no outside cars are allowed.

The apartment is comfortable with more than you may need. Hopefully next time we are in Modena, this (our) apartment will be available. It felt like our home away from home!!

I stood for 6 weeks in Tizianas and Faustos apartment and it has really been a great time. The apartment is cosy, located right in the heart of Bologna and the perfect home when you not only want to visite, but experience this beautiful city. Tiziana and Fausto take very good care of the apartment and have always been happy to help with everything. Since they come from nearby Modena (certainly also a great place to see), they know Emilia-Romagna very well and can give many tips where to go and what to do. Excellent FG 5/11/2014 2:29:00 AM
A lovely flat in the centre of Bologna - small but light and pleasant. I felt very at home during my stay here. The space is well organised and appointed and it has a large closet which is great! . The area is atmospheric and historic (recently renovated I imagine ) and restaurants and shops are just a few steps away. The owners are charming. Excellent michele dauppe 5/17/2009 1:59:00 PM
