The bright comfortable apartment is tastefully appointed, with great attention shown to detail. Outside is a lively bustling neighbourhood, but...More

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is right in the old center, in a picturesque old-Bologna area, in a street that is a quiet oasis during the day whilst it livens up at night with restaurant-goers. The apartment is quiet giving on an inner courtyard.

It is an ideal location for all the interesting places in the city: 5 minutes’ walk to Piazza Maggiore (the central square of any northern Italian city-state). Nearby is the beautiful Gothic church of S. Francesco. From here you can reach any spot in town on foot. If you want to travel further afield, there are bus-stops close by with many lines that can take you wherever you want to go.
The railway station is 20 minutes'walk, 5 minutes in the bus.
