Peter says (1):: 'I stayed in this apartment for three straight weeks in May and June and had a wonderful experience. The location is fantastic, about a 5 mim. walk from all the major attractions--yet because it is located in a pedestrian zone, the apartment is very, very quiet, something that is essential for me.
One of the best things was that for the first time in 25 years of spending lots of time in Europe, this was the first time I didn't need a car. We took many very easy day trips on the train to places like Venice, Ferrara, Parma, Verona, and Ravenna.
I got to know the guy who sells the newspapers (by my second visit, he knew which Italian paper I preferred), the cafe owners, and several waiters and one owner in two local restaurants. There are many excellent restaurants and historic sites within a few minutes' walk.' (see more)
Peter says (2):: 'It's true that the apartment is small--though it's perfect for one and fine for two though maybe a bit crowded with a third adult (but fine for a child)--but all the necessities are brilliantly arranged to save space. The kitchen is actually hidden behind of wooden curtain which, when pulled shut, gives the room more of a 'living room' feel, since you can't see the kitchen. Everything was spotless when I arrived, and the building is an excellent and safe one.
Pietro and his wife Anna are wonderful people and very hospitable. If I needed the smallest thing, Pietro would rush to fulfill my wishes. I stayed there a week alone, and when he heard that my girlfriend was staying with me the final two weeks, and that my sister and brother-in-law were staying in a nearby hotel at the same time, he and Anna threw a wonderful dinner party in our honor at their home in the country.'

Peter says (3):: 'I have rented apartments all over France and Italy for twenty years and this was one of my best experiences ever. Pietro is a great host and ever ready to help, but when you want to be left alone, he can do that too. I don't think he speaks much English (we spoke in Italian), but I'm sure his good will and enthusiasm would make up for any linguistic difficulties. Highest recommendation.' (Peter B., USA)

What makes this apartment unique
The unique benefits of staying at Due Torri is being at the center of it all, no noise, no mess, no need for a car, all points of interest in town reachable in a short walk or by city bus, which stops right around the corner. We are literally surrounded by the best stores, shops, restaurants, the most celebrated monuments -- Piazza Maggiore is only 1 minute walk!
Guestbook comments from the manager
A very nice little apartment, perfectly equipped, clean and very, very quiet. Unbeatable location 1 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore, Two Towers, Quadrilatero food market. etc.. Convenient to train station & trade fair. Good beds, tiny yet functional bathroom. Ideal for a couple.
