The apartment is at the 4th floor of a condo in one of the nicest residential district of Bologna.

The neighborhood is really nice and green and is steps from famous Trattoria "DA VITO" where some of the most famous Bolognese singers were regularly spotted... and "IL SELLAIO", at 100 metres from home, very famous for its gorgeous pizza... (see picture). My guests will find in their room a booklet with cards and numbers of these and many other cool places, so that you can plan ahead what to do.

Bologna's nickname for its delicious culinary tradition is "la Grassa" (The Fat) despite many knows "la Dotta" for its prestigious university. Whatever is the reason of your trip to Bologna, walk under miles of "portico" (arches walkways), regardless of the weather shopping is always dry and safe thanking to the porticos...Experience the vibrant atmosphere of the Alma Mater Studiorum - the oldest in the world - and choose from a wide range of cultural trips from churches, art-galleries, museums and sport events. Bologna's soccer team plays in "Serie A", and if you come on a Saturday - Sunday you may experience how Italians get so crazy about it... but also two strong basketball teams and the big "Unipol Arena" where major pop-star hold regularly their concerts... And of course indulge yourself in genuine bolognese food: mortadella, tortellini, tagliatelle, lasagne with ragù sauce... just to mention the most famous ones... or if you're of difficult tastes jump on the high-speed rail for a day trip to Venice (70 mins.), Milan (1 hr.), Florence (35 mins.)... The apartment is absolutely central to everything, has free WI-FI and is very warm; the guest room has a king size bed on a woodden floor. The guests have private bathroom (shown in the picture). Feel free to use all the kitchen's appliances and for your breakfast we recently got an automatic Espresso machine that makes a gorgeous espresso, one shot, double shot... as you like... In any case ask me what's new in town and I'll be happy to address you to the coolest Aperitivo or help you with directions... Benvenuti...

Made to feel very welcome by our host with whom we were able to communicate in French. He gave us good advice on places to eat and helpful directions. The property was as described with parking and a good wifi connection. It is well placed for walking into the city centre.
Мы снимали комнату с отдельным санузлом. Хозяин был очень приветлив. Квартира удобно расположена в тихом спокойном зеленом районе, чистая и светлая. Мы чувствовали себя как дома. Исторический центр находится в десяти минутах ходьбы через живописный студенческий квартал старейшего Болонского университета. Рядом с домом есть пиццерия с большим выбором пиццы.
Gianluca è stato gentilissimo e disponibilissimo, aspettando il nostro arrivo fino a tarda ora. L'appartamento è bello e molto grande, con Sky in salotto. Gianluca ci ha lasciato a disposizione tutto l'occorrente per la colazione. La zona è tranquilla e in 10/15 minuti a piedi si arriva alle due torri. In quattro persone, grazie anche ai due bagni, siamo stati davvero comodi. Gianluca ci ha messo a disposizione anche il parcheggio privato nel cortile! Consigliatissimo!
Gianaluca's parents are great hosts, very nice and friendly! They really make you feel home and take good care of you. We stayed at Gianluca's apartment during the Bologna's Children Book Fair and we couldn't have chosen a better spot. It only takes a 15/20 minute walk to get to the fair and it's also within walking distance from the city center. This place is highly recommended!
Gianluca is a wonderful host. Thanks to him and his parents my trip to Bologna was not only business but most of all pleasure. Grazie per tutto! They are always ready to help to matter what... So easygoing and open minded. Everyone would feel very welcome with this beautiful family. I'm more than sure I'll meet them again next year.
Gianluca e i suoi genitori sono degli host simpatici e disponibili. La casa è pulita ed accogliente, in una posizione perfetta per visitare la città. Consigliato!
Gianluca was very helpful and the room at his parents flat was nice and very clean. Gianluca's mother and father are very nice people. I can highly recommend the room.
