We have an apartment of 110 square metres in a very pleasant building of 25 apartment, with a private common garden of 20.000 square metres in the suburb of the city, but it takes only 15 minutes to go to the historical centre by bus. Central Railway Station is 20 minutes away by bus. Highway is 10 minutes away by car. The international airport G. Marconi is 20 minutes away by car.
The house is very quiet; it has 2 bed rooms (1 with a double bed and 1 with two single bunk beds), a study room (with personal computer and internet access), 2 bathrooms (one with washer and bath, the other with shower and hydromassage), the living room (with hi-fi and a flowered terrace, with a great view over the southern hills and the basilica of S. Luca), the kitchen fully equipped (dishwasher, deep freezer, domestic equipment).
There is a commercial centre 2 kms away and a great Hyper market is 4 kms far from.

Your neighbourhood

Bologna is named “the learned” for the ancient University, “the fat” because of the delicious cookery, “the red” for the colour of the several medieval buildings, all made by red bricks. The historical centre is one of the largest in Italy with buildings from medieval age to “liberty “ period (Art Nouveau); it is still the real “heart” of the city (day and night), with offices, shops, schools, restaurants, bars, “osterie” (historical wine-bar), cinemas and theatres. One of the most typical characteristics of Bologna are the “porticoes”, that allow to visit all the historical centre sheltered from bad weather. A “portico” of about 5 kilometres connect the historical centre with one of the most characteristic church in Bologna “the Basilica of S. Luca”, built on XVII century on a hill near the town.
Every Friday in Bologna takes place a typical great market.
In Bologna there are many important theatres for lyric opera and for prose. There are also two important art galleries, one of ancient and one of modern art. The most important museum is the municipal archaeological museum, that contain an important Egyptian collection.
