Description

This marvellous apartment (90 sq.mt) is on the 4th floor, with elevator (it is necessary to climb a flight of stairs on foot), in Palazzo Banchi. Located in the very heart of Bologna city centre, on the eastern side of Piazza Maggiore, it is placed right beside San Petronio Basilica and is named after the Medieval bank shops. The building dates back to 1412, whist the façade and the ‘portico’ were finished in 1568; in 2010 Palazzo Banchi was fully renovated, and it has been newly furnished in August 2014.
The original exposed beams have been maintained during the renovations and become part of the furniture, bestowing an intense atmosphere. There is beech flooring and big skylights drenching the apartment with natural light. The apartment has high-end finishes, such as air conditioning, independent heating, and sound-proofed, insulated windows and doors. The decor is complemented by photographic installations that celebrate the city by revisiting its most famous monuments in Pop Art Style and highlight the ancient context in which they are placed while at the same time create an elegant and modern atmosphere in the rooms.
Guests are welcomed into a foyer with a corridor taking into the living room. In the corridor there is the laundry. The living room is furnished with a dining table seating up to 7 people, 2 single sofa beds 75X185 and a flat screen TV. The open-plan kitchen, custom-made and obtained under the centerpieces, is fitted with oven, dishwasher and a big L-shaped countertop.
The night area has two bedrooms, a single bedroom and two bathrooms. The guest bedroom is located on the left of the living room and is lit by two huge skylights. On your way to it you cross an anteroom with a closet; the bedroom is furnished with a comfortable double bed (made of two single beds 80X200) and a chest of drawers. The bathroom, with blue mosaic tiles, is very spacious and equipped with a shower stall.
The master bedroom has a big window offering ample views of Bologna city centre and the neighbouring hills. There is a double bed (made of two single beds), a huge chest of drawers and a pouf. Guests benefit from a private bathroom with tub and a walk-in closet.
The focal point of the apartment is the single bedroom upstairs, that offers full views of Bologna city centre – from San Petronio basilica to the hills- and is complete with a furnished terrace.
Small pets are allowed (double deposit + 120 € for extra cleaning to be paid on site).

The area

Area
The building is located right in Bologna city centre: Piazza Maggiore is the city’s main square and is surrounded by some of its most precious buildings. The oldest one is Palazzo Podestà, dating back to 1200 and dominated by the Arengo Tower; Palazzo Re Enzo, famous for its cross vaults, is right at the back.
Opposite Palazzo dei Banchi you find Palazzo d'Accursio, a monumental architectonical complex dating back to the XIV century home to Bologna town hall. On the fourth side of the square there is San Petronio Basilica, a brilliant example of Italian gothic, started at the end of the XIV century and never completed. Palazzo Banchi is connected to the most important ‘portico’ in Italy – known as Pavaglione– developing from Piazza Maggiore to Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, that first hosted Bologna university.
Nowadays the university is located at approx. 5 minutes on foot from the building, in via Zamboni; in the vicinity you also find the Teatro Comunale, largely renowned for the opera season.
The most important historic sights of Bologna are just minutes away, such as Piazza Santo Stefano (with seven churches built one into the other and the Corte Isolani) and the Two Towers (Torre degli Asinelli and Torre della Garisenda). The ‘portico’ of Palazzo dei Banchi is one of the fourth sides of the ‘Quadrilatero’: a complex of pedestrian streets filled with mouthwatering shops offering the best products of the area (hand-made pasta, sausages, wine) and fresh groceries.
And if you miss shopping, enjoy a spree around via Indipendenza, the boutiques of Galleria Cavour and the refined shops of via Farini and via d'Azeglio.
Public transports
The closet bus stop is located in via Rizzoli and allows to quickly reach the railway station (take here the shuttle bus to the airport), to Bologna fair and the main hospitals. All the major sights in Bologna are within walking distance.
The apartment you rented is located in a Limited Traffic Area (ZTL). On Saturdays and Sundays the city centre is a pedestrian area. You can park in the nearby Piazza Roosevelt (paying the ticket for the access in the city center, see below for further information about), accessed from via IV Novembre 7, or you can leave your car in Piazza VIII Agosto, at 5 minutes on foot from Piazza Maggiore.
The closest private garages are located in Piazza Galileo (Garage Piazza Maggiore) and in Piazza Galvani (Autorimessa Piani Paolo). Both of this garage can allow you to enter in the city center without paying any ticket fees. You can opt for a daily or monthly ticket: in this last case the cost is around € 250,00/500,00 per month, depending from the car. Both garages are open 24h a day and can provide the guests with remote control.
Otherwise you can leave your car in the nearby APCOA parking of Piazza 8 Agosto (20,00 €/day; or 200,00 €/month)."
Driving in Bologna city centre:
For stays longer than 3 months: you can ask for the permit to enter the city centre as temporary resident.
For short-term stays you are allowed to enter the city centre by car choosing between 2 option: a ticket valid for 4 consecutive days or a daily ticket that you can use only 3 time per month.
The access is granted by a ticket (€ 6,00) that can be bought at the TPer points located in Via Marconi 4 (at the corner of via Lame), at Tabacchi shop beside Basilica di San Petronio - in piazza Maggiore - or at any Carrefour supermarket.

Important: guests are required to pay a city tax, not included in the price. The fee varies from 1.50 € to 5.00 € per person per night depending on the value of the booking. The city tax applies only to the first 5 nights.
