This two-bedroom apartment is located on the top floor of a building in the historic center of Spilamberto, a small town between Modena and Bologna in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. The town is located about 5 kilometers from the Modena Sud exit of the A1 Autostrada and is about a 30-minute drive from the Bologna International Airport (BLQ). This location offers the charm and convenience of being in the center of a small town, yet is centrally located in the region.
Spilamberto has a lively, well preserved historic center with stone streets, covered walkways, an ancient clock tower and fortress. Shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, bakeries, markets and a pharmacy are all conveniently located in town, within easy walking distance of the apartment. There is a weekly market on Wednesday mornings and numerous festivals throughout the year.
There is free parking in various streets of the center with no permit required. Although a car is recommended for getting around the region, there are buses to Modena and other cities and towns from Spilamberto. The closest train stations are Castelfranco Emilia and Bazzano, but the Bologna and Modena stations are better served.
