Choose to live in the centre of Bologna and surround yourself with medieval buildings housing shops, bars and restaurants. Walk outside and wander along busy streets towards the University of Bologna, just 10 minutes on foot from your home. Spend free time exploring the city’s big attractions and many superb restaurants. The train station’s around 15 minutes’ walk away, so you can plan to take day trips with friends to Florence.
Come through the door to your apartment building, right on Piazza Maggiore, and you’ll find yourself in a stunning period building with beautiful details like ceiling frescoes, marble staircases and tiled floors. Depending which apartment you choose, you could have views over the square or share an impressive dining room with housemates. There’s a spectacular studio you can have all to yourself if you want that little extra privacy.
All the apartments are sympathetically modernised with equipped kitchens, which can come with dishwashers and coffee machines, as well as lounge areas with stereos and TVs. There’s a maintenance service if you need help with anything while you’re staying at Palazzo Banchi, as well as a maid service and help with laundry if you want to pay extra and have everything taken care of for you. It’ll leave you time to get on with studying at the desk in your room or exploring this incredible Italian city.
