Condo/Apartment
The apartment is on the attic floor and has a panoramic room on the upper floor (to be accessed from a wooden staircase). The original exposed beams have been maintained during the renovations and become part of the furniture, bestowing an intense atmosphere. There is beech flooring and big skylights drenching the apartment with natural light. The apartment has high-end finishes, such as air conditioning, independent heating, and sound-proofed, insulated windows and doors. The furniture is completed by some refined pieces of modern art and lithographs of famous Italian artists, that bestow an elegant, refined atmosphere to the ambience. Guests are welcomed into a foyer with a corridor taking into the living room. In the corridor there is the laundry.

The furniture is completed by some refined pieces of modern art and lithographs of famous Italian artists, that bestow an elegant, refined atmosphere to the ambience. Guests are welcomed into a foyer with a corridor taking into the living room. In the corridor there is the laundry. The living room is furnished with a dining table seating up to 7 people, 2 single sofa beds and a flat screen TV. The open-plan kitchen, custom-made and obtained under the centerpieces, is fitted with oven, dishwasher and a big L-shaped countertop. The night area has two bedrooms, a single bedroom and two bathrooms. The guest bedroom is located on the left of the living room and is lit by two huge skylights. On your way to it you cross an anteroom with a closet; the bedroom is furnished with a comfortable double bed (made of two single beds) and a chest of drawers. The bathroom, with blue mosaic tiles, is very spacious and equipped with a shower stall. The master bedroom has a big window offering ample views of Bologna city centre and the neighbouring hills. There is a double bed (made of two single beds), a huge chest of drawers and a pouf. Guests benefit from a private bathroom with tub and a walk-in closet. Upstairs there is a loft space with a single sofa bed, with full views of Bologna city centre – from San Petronio basilica to the hills- and with a furnished terrace. Area The building is located right in Bologna city centre: Piazza Maggiore is the city’s main square and is surrounded by some of its most precious buildings. The oldest one is Palazzo Podestà, dating back to 1200 and dominated by the Arengo Tower; Palazzo Re Enzo, famous for its cross vaults, is right at the back. Opposite Palazzo dei Banchi you find Palazzo d'Accursio, a monumental architectonical complex dating back to the XIV century home to Bologna town hall. On the fourth side of the square there is San Petronio Basilica, a brilliant example of Italian gothic, started at the end of the XIV century and never completed. Palazzo Banchi is connected to the most important ‘portico’ in Italy – known as Pavaglione– developing from Piazza Maggiore to Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, that first hosted Bologna university. Nowadays the university is located at approx. 5 minutes on foot from the building, in via Zamboni; in the vicinity you also find the Teatro Comunale, largely renowned for the opera season. The most important historic sights of Bologna are just minutes away, such as Piazza Santo Stefano (with seven churches built one into the other and the Corte Isolani) and the Two Towers (Torre degli Asinelli and Torre della Garisenda). The ‘portico’ of Palazzo dei Banchi is one of the fourth sides of the ‘Quadrilatero’: a complex of pedestrian streets filled with mouthwatering shops offering the best products of the area (hand-made pasta, sausages, wine) and fresh groceries. And if you miss shopping, enjoy a spree around via Indipendenza, the boutiques of Galleria Cavour and the refined shops of via Farini and via d'Azeglio. Public transports The closet bus stop is located in via Rizzoli and allows to quickly reach the railway station (take here the shuttle bus to the airport), to Bologna fair and the main hospitals. All the major sights in Bologna are within walking distance. Parking The apartment is located in a Limited Traffic Area (ZTL). On Saturdays and Sundays the city centre is a pedestrian area. You can park in the nearby Piazza Galvani, accessed from via Farini, or you can leave your car in Piazza VIII Agosto, at 5 minutes on foot from Piazza Maggiore. The closest garages are located in Via Carbonara (Garage San Pietro) and in Via Valdonica (Autorimessa Piemonte). You can opt for a monthly ticket respectively at 300€/month and 200€/month. Both garages are open 24h a day and provide the guests with remote control. Driving in Bologna city centre: For stays longer than 3 months: you can ask for the permit to enter the city centre. For short-term stays: you are allowed to enter the city centre by car (only for 3 days per month). The access is granted by a ticket (5,00€) that can be bought at the ATC points located in: Via Marconi 4 (at the corner of via Lame); Via IV Novembre, 16/a; Via Rizzoli 1/d. Otherwise you can leave your car in the nearby parking of Piazza 8More
