DUE TORRI - THE BEST COMFORT IN THE HEART OF THE HISTORICAL CENTER

Bologna City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bthrm, 1 bdrm, sleeps 2 + 1 in 2 doubles (or 1 queen-size) + 1 foldup bed

Traveling for vacation? Need a place in town for business? Looking for a TRUE central location, a nice area away from the mess? Look no further. Located in the very heart of Bologna (between the Two Towers and gorgeous Piazza Maggiore – no more than 70 meters!), right in the middle of a traffic-free, colourful yet safe, typical Bolognese area, this quaint, extra-clean, quiet two-room apartment sleeps two or three comfortably. It features one bedroom (with one queen-size bed that can be split into two singles), a bathroom, a kitchenette, a living room and a fold-up for your added comfort. All kitchen tools are provided together with the most important appliances, all state-of-the-art and in perfect working conditions. The apartment features broadband wifi internet connection, is air conditioned and well stocked with groceries as a welcome for you after a long trip. Compliments of the house, Anna’s famous homemade cake will be ready for you together with a bottle of wine at your arrival.

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.' (see more)

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)

I am a retired professional in my late 60's. Anna , my wife, and I live in the countryside of Bologna. We like meeting new people ad making friends - something that usually happens with our guests.

Pietro purchased this apartment in 1984

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!

Best vacation of our life!

We had a wonderful time staying in Bologna and loved our Due Torri apartment. The location was phenominal - so convenient to all the major attractions in Bologna. The neighborhood was very safe and close to wonderful restaurants, world class shopping, markets and the train station. We were within walking distance of everything we needed and close to the train station when we wanted to travel to other cities. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and extremely quiet - everything we needed for a home away from home for two weeks.

Many thanks to Pietro for his wonderful hospitality. He made the whole experience, including our research and booking, so enjoyable. We hope to return again!! Thanks for everything and for your kindness to our daughter!

Great Location

The Due Torri apartment provided spartan accommodations in an excellent locale. Rooms were clean and pleasantly decorated, beds were small but comfortable, and the bathroom was small but workable. There are cooking utensils, dishes, glasses, and silverware on hand so you can prepare your own meals.

Pietro, our landlord, could not have been better. He was prompt and pleasant in all our dealings, and answered all our questions. When we arrived, he met us at the apartment, and showed me around the neighborhood.

We were only 2 blocks from the famous Tamburini deli and fine food vendors on the Via Pescherie Vecchie, close to the Two Towers (the Torre degli Asinelli and the Torre Garisenda), and 4 blocks from the City Center (the Piazza Maggiore, the Piazza del Nettuno, and the Piazza de Porta Ravegnana). This is a great area for walking, with great restaurants, impressive churches, beautiful galleries, many fine shops, and plenty of nightlife. We loved the city!

This apartment was a great find. It is small, but everything is provided to make you feel like home. Beds were brand new and very comfy, with firm mattresses. Fantastic location between the Two Towers and Piazza Maggiore, the Medieval Market and the train station. Great, friendly hosts welcomed us with a delicious cake and a bottle of spumante wine. Absolutely recommended.

Very good apartment in the heart of the city

It is a small apartment, but there is everything you need. But the best is the communication and the tips from the owner (thanks again for the bottle of wine). From this apartment you can reach all historical monuments, best restaurants and popular places in town in a few minutes by feet. Nearby there are two supermarkets and also many little stores to buy all you need. You will not hear any noise from the street but perhaps a little noise from the neighbours(washing machine in the middle of the night).At least I would say it's a good price-performance ratio and I would choose it again.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Andrea. I really hope you come visit soon. Ciao!

Pasé un mes en el departamento de Pierto con mi marido y mi hijita, y nos sentimos muy a gusto! La ubicación del departamento es inmejorable, a dos pasos de las Due Torri inmersos en el glamour de la Boloña medieval que tanto nos gusta. El departamento es muy comodo y silencioso, volveremos a Boloña y seguramente querremos estar nuevamente ahi! Pietro fue muy gentil y atento, y nuestra hijita se deleitó con cada uno de los chocolates que le trajo ;)
