Flat with 1 bedroom, 2 sleeps and 2 terraces in the historic center of Bologna.

A delightful base for exploring Bologna!!!

The 40m2 apartment is at the 5th and last floor (with elevator) located in an early 20th-century building set, very close to the main touristic and cultural attractions.

Amazing views from the patio, great location in the heart of Bologna! Very clean & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, very comfortable bed with amazing views out the bedroom windows. We loved the two patios to admire the views of the city. Owners Gaelle & Stephano were very nice & helpful. Would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Bologna.

Sweet little nest in Bologna

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Altana Bologna and enjoyed it very much! We have used VRBO for all of our travel for a number of years now and so we have seen many properties. Gaelle could not have been more helpful, giving us tips on where to eat, shop, etc. as well as being responsive to any questions we had. We loved the roof top terrace (it has two, but the roof was my favorite) and would have spent more time up there had it not been for the heat wave that week. I would give it 5 stars but anyone going needs to be aware that there is a tight circular stairway one level up from the elevator and another one up to the roof. So it's difficult to carry much up to the rooftop. Also it is a very small apartment and doesn't have any comfy chairs save for the sofa bed, which we chose to leave as a bed rather than putting it up and down. We had no problem with it being small as we were out exploring every day, but if you want a place that you plan to spend a good bit of time in, it might be cramped. Again, we loved it and want to thank Gaelle for a fabulous 5 nights! We would definitely love to come back to this beautiful city and apartment!

A great little apartment at the heart of ancient Bologna with amazing roof terraces

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Altana in 9 months, so you can guess how much we like this apartment and this city. We also visited Parma, Ravenna and Ferrara by train - easy to book before we left the UK and good days out in similar yet very different locations to Bologna. The apartment owners are very helpful and check-in etc was easy. Supermarkets are close by, as were pastry shops, and the medieval market full of fresh produce and fascinating interest. All the key attractions are within walking distance - the symbolic Two Towers are literally at one end of the street and the ancient Palazzi are at the other. We recommend Bologna and the Altana apartment unreservedly.

Amazing place right in the heart of Bologna

  • 5 of 5

This nest is truly an eagle's eyrie. You can watch sunrise and sunsets from the terrace. While the place is small, it is very well equipped and thoroughly modern. The host was very helpful in providing an orientation and suggestions about things to do and where to eat. We'd love to come back someday!

Altana Bologna is an exclusive studio in the historical center of Bologna. Located in Via Caprarie 1, between the 'piazza maggiore' and the medieval 'two towers', it's the perfect starting point to visit the town and all its artistic heritage.

This fantastic location, on the oldest part of the city, is just upstairs the famous Tamburini shop and really close to the typical little market shops.

Really easy walk to the train station.

Area well served by public transport.
