Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Bologna's hills are a feature of this city because they offer the opportunity to live very close to the city center, in a very quiet and green environment.
It takes only 10 minutes to go to Duomo square (piazza Maggiore) by bike or car, 10 minutes by public transportation (bus), 30 minutes by foot. Our house lies 300 meters from a big and green park (Giardini Margherita), with a little lake and several playgrounds.
Bolgna is a very lively city, the largest medieval center (47 km of arcades) and oldest university in Europe where you can find theaters, gorgeous churches, cinemas, libraries, parks, restaurants. Bologna is the center of Italian gastronomy, sport (soccer) and entertainment activities.
Our house is conveniently located at a short distance to the highway system: to reach it you do not have to cross the city. It takes about 20mins to get to the train station and 30 min to the airport (Bologna, Marconi airport).

Both of our cars are available: a 2008 citroen C3 with a manual stick-shift and a 2009 Hyunday Santa Fe with automatic-shift. Liguria, with Genova and the famous "Cinque Terre" is at a two and a half -hour drive, the beaches of the Riviera Romagnola are two hours away, the Dolomiti mountains (with skiing resorts and wonderful trekking and walking trails in summertime) are just 3 hours away.
Getting to Venice or Florence takes approximately 1 hour by train. During your stay in Bologna you won't get bored!
