I don't know why I kept getting lost, it is right behind Piazza Maggiore. Bologna is a gem of a town that is off the conventional tourist track and should NOT be missed. Prices lower than Firenze, which is only 40 mins away by fast-train. Considering it is built in a palazzo that's been standing for many years, they have done a marvelous job of restoration. Every comfort available, including cookies at teatime. Delizioso colazione. It was hot even in mid-September but I didn't mind taking many showers because of all the gorgeous marble. One day my room was not done until after 3, and I was recommended a rather poor restaurant that was pretty far away on my first nite, but those are my only minor complaints. Mille grazie to Christine and Francesco who catered to my every whim and answered so many questions, and to the lovely blonde who tried desperately to get me CNN on 11 Sept -- and succeeded! Internet pc extremely convenient for emails. Would stay again, would recommend w/o reserve. Belissima!
