Cozy and comfortable two-story penthouse located in one of the most elegant streets of the medieval city, on the third and last floor (no elevator) of a historic building. From the entrance a wooden staircase leads up to the living area with dining area, living room, bow window, separate kitchen and access to the balconies and the terrace. The living area is very large and a single bed with a wooden slatted bed can be added to the sofa bed in the living room. From the entrance you go down a few steps and you enter the sleeping area composed of a large dressing room, with a comfortable single sofa futon great for a relaxing break, and a wardrobe and from this to both the double bedroom and the bathroom with a large shower, toilet and two sinks.

Each room offers unexpected views of the rooftops and interior gardens, splendid in every season of the year. The silence and the intimacy of the attic guarantee relaxation and rest and the location within the city walls, in the heart of the historic center, offers a wide possibility to live intensely cultural events, shopping, gastronomy without the need to use the car. For those arriving by car there is the possibility of paying parking in a garage 50 meters away (which also provides access authorization in the limited traffic area - ZTL). Nearby there are other possibilities of public parking outside the ZTL, but easily reachable on foot.More

About the neighbourhood
My home is situated in the old city center in the limited traffic zone (ZTL), guarded by video cameras. The cozy penthouse of a genuine Bolognese atmosphere, is located in the heart of the medieval city near the superb St. Stephen's Square, within walking distance from the traditional markets, the elegant shopping zone of Cavour Gallery , the Two Towers Asinelli e Garisenda, theatres, museum, caracteristic cafes and restaurans... Here you can really immerge yourself into the ancient Bologna of the historic Middle Age.
Getting around
You can visit the city, the parks and the churches on the hills on foot if you like, or you will be able to get on tourist or standard buses. The central station is five minutes by taxi or 15 minutes on foot and you can reach important cities for their history and beauty such as Venice, Verona, Padua, Ravenna, Ferrara or the beaches of the Adriatic coast in just over an hour's train .
