Enjoy the warm atmosphere of our apartment in the most attractive area of a city rich in culture and life as Bologna, Northern Italy. Enjoy the comfort of many little details - elevator, new comfortable mattress, wood floors and ceiling, large dining/studying table, lot of light from the windows overlooking the street. The apartment is a 40 square mt. studio, that is an open space (no separated bedroom), suitable for one person or a couple. But there is also a third bed (sofabed). Second floor with elevator. Location is the greatest added value of this apartment. The old Jewish neighborhood is one of the most charming part of Bologna downtown very central, steps to the Two Towers, convenient to bus stop and main streets - via Rizzoli and via Indipendenza, still quiet, with small artisanal shops, cafe and art galleries. From this apartment, you can totally enjoy, day and night, the rich cultural life of Bologna jazz café, nice restaurants and pubs. Grocery stores and international, Italian/regional take-out food nearby, 2 supermarkets around the corner plenty of coffee bar, pubs and restaurants in the area. Rizzoli and Sant'Orsola hospitals easy to reach by 10 min bus ride. We let it on Sabbaticalhomes since 2002: our guests come from all over the world, mainly US, but also Australia, Canada and Europe. We always give them all our support to make them feel at home and to help them to manage their engagements (University, language school, trips out of Bologna, business fairs...) Our flat is recommended Rental by “Italy Chronycles”. It’s perfect as writing retreat, for professors on sabbatical or just for tourism. Antique taste but modern comfort, in an enchanting pedestrian area full of cafè and restaurants Convenient to reach Bologna Fair District (Bologna Fiere) by direct bus in 15 minutes. Bologna is a perfect hub from which visit on fast train (frecciarossa) Florence (30 min.), Milan and Venice (1 hour), Rome (2 hours). Contact us!

OUR GUEST COMMENTS: "10 reasons why your trip to Italy needs to include a stop in Bologna: 1. There’s a fabulous studio apartment awaiting you. Its location is perfect–in a medieval area of town, just blocks from the famous towers and the Piazza Maggiore, just around the corner from Nicola’s for the best pizza on the planet. The apartment is owned by our dear friends, Titti and Fausto Zanasi, whose kindness and smiles are the vibe of the place." (Jim Toner - California) "A host like you, so charming and ever smiling, is hard to find! Thank you for your warm welcome" Upasana, India "One week was not enough for Bologna...the location of this apartment was perfect to explore the city and the region" Jill and Guy, Australia "I've had an amazing five weeks staying while working at the University. Grazie mille!" Paul, New Zealand "The flat is cozy, warm and ideally situated. We did not visit Bologna- we lived here for a week! (Jasmine and Pasquale-London GB) The apartment is beautiful and comfortable, and equipped with so much useful information for the new visitor to Bologna. The location is perfect-close to everything and still secluded. This was the perfect place to call home for 6 weeks (Alicia-NYC)
