My companion and I have just spent 5 nights in Daria’s lovely Authentic Towers’ apartment situated conveniently in the Universiity area. It was such a good experience whether sitting on the charming balcony or viewing the 360 degree vista of the City from the rooftop terrace. Bologna is a fascinating city to explore. We enjoyed it and think it was a truly 5* city break!
We loved the Tower apartment, in the historic city centre with amazing views over the beautiful city and hills beyond in every direction. Very comfortable and well equipped - great to have two bathrooms. Daria the owner was very friendly and helpful - this is the best holiday apartment we have ever stayed in, we recommend it. We enjoyed the vertical layout, with spiral stairs between each floor and the views changing at each level - but there are a lot of stairs, which may not be suitable for everyone.
The pictures don't do it justice. This place is absolutely charming. Lots of stairs, so not for the mobility-impaired or faint of heart. But totally worth the climb(s). Windows in every direction, and super helpful landlord. A gem.
This place is just exactly as you would imagine from the many photos on Tripadvisor. For anyone wanting to get the real feeling of Bolognese history, you can't beat actually living in one of the few remaining towers which have been important to the locals over the centuries. The view from the top of the tower is just beautiful - those gorgeous orange roof tiles in all directions, punctuated by the bell towers and domes of the many churches. The location is very handy for the trendy student quarter and many cheap and cheerful eateries, including the little cafe next door. A 15 minute walk will have you in the centre of Bologna, along fascinating narrow streets and ancient colonnades. There is information available about where the nearest shops are for folks wanting to buy their own food. You will probably need to know this, as Tower guests are not provided with a welcoming "starter" kit, such as coffee or the first morning's breakfast. It was no trouble to nip out and get fresh milk, wine and the other necessities of life. And you could always have a delicious coffee and croissant in the the cafe next door of course. The beds were comfortable, and the views from the medieval windows stunning in all directions.
Just returned from a four night stay in this quirky and comfortable accommodation. The apartment is very well furnished and equipped. The little balcony is a lovely feature, great for breakfast, coffee and G&Ts. The views from the top of the tower are quite breathtaking.
Located in the University district it's very handy for the central attractions, of which there are many in this under-rated Italian city.
Daria the owner is very welcoming and keen to ensure that you have everything you need.
