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)
