Description

In the very heart of Bologna city centre, on the eastern side of Piazza Maggiore, a refined one bedroom apartment (65 sq.mt) on the fifth floor, with elevator only to the fourth floor, in Palazzo Banchi. Right beside San Petronio Basilica, it 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 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.
This comfortable apartment gives the unforgettable emotion to live at the very heart of Bologna, in the famous Piazza Maggiore or Piazza Grande, as the well-known singer Lucio Dalla used to call it.
The guests benefit from ample views of one of the most famous alleyways in Bologna Old Town, Via Clavature. Not only the apartment is fitted with precious oak parquet flooring, but also has high-end finishes, such as air conditioning, independent heating, and sound-proofed, insulated windows and doors.
On the left of the entrance hall there is the living room, where the original exposed beams have been preserved and restored, thus becoming part of the room’s design. On the contrary, the furniture is simple and modern: the day area features a flat screen TV, a table for up to 5 people and three single sofa-beds 75X185.
The fully-fitted kitchen is at the back of the living room, and it has both dishwasher and electric oven.
An anteroom leads into the bedroom, furnished with a double bed (made of two singles), a pouf and a big custom-made wardrobe. The bathroom, with blue mosaic tiles, is equipped with tub. The laundry -with washing machine- is accessed from the living room.
Small pets are allowed (double deposit + 120 € for extra cleaning to be paid on site).
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS - BEDS:
When booking, it is possible to request that the beds in the apartment are set up as singles (80 x 200 cm) or joined together to make a double bed (160 x 200 cm). The single sofa beds in the building measure 75 x 185 cm.

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.
