Our home

We offer a nice and beautiful apartment in the center of Bologna. We have two bedrooms/bathrooms, both with a double bed. There is a huge lounge/living room, that can be arranged as a bedroom in case of need and of course a kitchen. It's a apartment in an old monastery in the very core of the medieval city center of Bologna, just two minutes walking from Piazza Maggiore. Nice views on Bologna's skyline and the main Asinelli Tower and a stunning terrace with view on the two towers.

My two storey apartment in Bologna, Italy, is at the third floor of a building set in the current shape in the XIX century, in the old market neighbourhood, 80 meters from the main Piazza Maggiore.

You will have the most vibrant food market just off the door, and in minutes, you will be in the heart of an actual "hidden jewel".

My apartment is a two storey-flat, third floor (no lift unfortunately, but not hard to climb):

At the first floor you have

(a) reading room/guests'room /guests room
(b) day bathroom
(c) kitchen, with dishwasher.
(d) living room and dining lounge / 2 people can sleep here.

Flat screen tv is there, so wifi connection and printer. Airplay system is on all around the apartment, so you'll be able to listen to your own music using your computer or your iPhone.

Upstairs, I have an open space 60 m2 double bedroom with a large, confortabile, design bathroom and a huge shower (+washing machine)

There is also a 16m2 terrace on Bologna's roofs, with a panorama of the Asinelli tower and right under the big Santa Maria della vita Dome, where in summer (under beach umbrellas) we use to have dinner and lunch.

The apartment is fully air-conditioned, and exchange includes weekly maid service. I can provide a more extended set of pictures if needed.

Who we are

  1. My name is Eddy Anselmi, 49: I am an historian of pop music, working on Eurovision Song Contest and Sanremo Festival. I usually travel together with my family: my sister Gioia, 47, teacher, her husband Silvio, 56, public servant and their daughter Adelaide, 12.

  2. I am new on this website, but we are experienced exchangers. We use to transfer our "headquarter" in another capital city. We started home exchanging in 2012 and since then, I completed more than twenty exchanges all around Europe. I cannot name a single unsatisfactory experience.

  3. We would be looking for a 1 week exchange in December 2019 / January 2020, best option dec 31 - January 6th.
    Seville or Valencia would be our favourite destinations. We are open also to non-simultaneous exchanges.

    A proposal for a (long) week-end, or a week in Amsterdam or in London is always welcome.
