Bologna apartment description

Traveling for vacation? Need a place in town for business? Looking for a TRUE central location, a nice area away from the mess? Look no further. Located in the very heart of Bologna (between the Two Towers and gorgeous Piazza Maggiore – no more than 70 meters!), right in the middle of a traffic-free, colourful yet safe, typical Bolognese area, this quaint, extra-clean, quiet two-room apartment sleeps two or three comfortably. It features one bedroom (with one queen-size bed that can be split into two singles), a bathroom, a kitchenette, a living room and a fold-up for your added comfort. All kitchen tools are provided together with the most important appliances, all state-of-the-art and in perfect working conditions. The apartment features broadband wifi internet connection, is air conditioned and well stocked with groceries as a welcome for you after a long trip. Compliments of the house, Anna’s famous homemade cake will be ready for you together with a bottle of wine at your arrival.

Be in the center of it all and enjoy the convenience of moving around without worrying about a car or struggling for a parking spot. Save money and time by visiting all the major Northern Italian art cities by train (Florence, Venice, Ravenna, Rimini, Mantua, Milan, and Ferrara are less than a hour away). Walk under the covered sidewalks to dine at the best restaurants and trattorias of the world-renowned Italian capital of gourmet food and fun, Bologna. Enjoy shopping at the fashionable stores that surround this tiny yet cozy apartment – expressly designed for your vacation or business purposes.

Coming for business? The fairground is only ten minutes by bus (stop right around the corner). Planning a vacation or a honeymoon? You will be literally surrounded by all the major monuments, theaters, museums, and more. As the best of the historical center of Bologna, Due Torri is located in a 100% hassle-free, total quiet area with the Teatro Comunale, the world-renowned University and most top stores and restaurants right there. Other pluses: full, accurate assistance (English spoken) before and during your stay; special discounts on guided tours, kitchen and pasta classes, wine tasting, etc.; and finally, a very interesting price for you to better enjoy your Bolognese vacation.

All this makes Due Torri your ideal headquarters in Northern Italy. A perfect romantic, strategic getaway – an opportunity you cannot miss if you want to experience Italy at its best. We look forward to your reservation!


Listen to what our guest (and now friend) Peter says:

'I stayed in this apartment for three straight weeks in May and June and had a wonderful experience. The location is fantastic, about a 5 mim. walk from all the major attractions--yet because it is located in a pedestrian zone, the apartment is very, very quiet, something that is essential for me. One of the best things was that for the first time in 25 years of spending lots of time in Europe, this was the first time I didn't need a car. We took many very easy day trips on the train to places like Venice, Ferrara, Parma, Verona, and Ravenna. I got to know the guy who sells the newspapers (by my second visit, he knew which Italian paper I preferred), the cafe owners, and several waiters and one owner in two local restaurants. There are many excellent restaurants and historic sites within a few minutes' walk.

It's true that the apartment is small--though it's perfect for one and fine for two though maybe a bit crowded with a third adult (but fine for a child)--but all the necessities are brilliantly arranged to save space. The kitchen is actually hidden behind of wooden curtain which, when pulled shut, gives the room more of a 'living room' feel, since you can't see the kitchen. Everything was spotless when I arrived, and the building is an excellent and safe one. Pietro and his wife Anna are wonderful people and very hospitable. If I needed the smallest thing, Pietro would rush to fulfill my wishes. I stayed there a week alone, and when he heard that my girlfriend was staying with me the final two weeks, and that my sister and brother-in-law were staying in a nearby hotel at the same time, he and Anna threw a wonderful dinner party in our honor at their home in the country.

I have rented apartments all over France and Italy for twenty years and this was one of my best experiences ever. Pietro is a great host and ever ready to help, but when you want to be left alone, he can do that too. I don't think he speaks much English (we spoke in Italian), but I'm sure his good will and enthusiasm would make up for any linguistic difficulties. Highest recommendation.' (Peter B., USA)
