Charming 75 m2 apartment with open views and spacious interiors. It is well equipped and uncluttered. Entrance hall, dine-in kitchen, living room (sofa bed), bathroom, bedroom (king bed) walk-in closet, condo shared roof terrace. Located on the top floor of an ancient building in the historical center of Bologna. Rebuilt in the 1920's, it still conserves its charming old Liberty railings, wooden windows and doors, and stucco decorations around the tall ceilings.

The apartment is bright and sunny, with handcrafted sand-white cement floors all through the house. Very quiet and private, with open views of the old town rooftops, the large windows overlook neighboring gardens with large trees and chirping birds. The apartment has no windows on noisy streets or traffic. Top (3rd floor), with a condo shared roof terrace 1 story above, to sit outside and enjoy the full panoramic view!

You may access the condo shared terrace located one floor above the apartment. This terrace is used by residents mainly to dry laundry. There is a lovely view and a table with chairs you are welcome to use. Because it is a shared space please no meals or BBQ on the terrace ;-) Please keep tidy and quiet.
If you want to hire bicycles you can park them in the basement. Otherwise, my street community "Fondazza Social Street" has a bunch of bicycles everyone is welcome to use. Bike lock keys are kept in a basket in Masood's grocery store on the corner where bikes must be returned after use.

When you arrive I will greet you, go over the house, keys and check -in registration. I can also point you in the right direction for food, shopping and sight seeing. I live 15 minutes from the apartment and am available during your stay should you need help with anything. You can call my mobile anytime, also form the house phone.
During long stays we will be taking care of some maintainance and housekeeping.

WHAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD OFFERS: Nearby streets offer mostly everything: a wide choice of cafes, wine bars, restaurants and famous trattorie. Also great for food shopping at nearby fresh food markets (piazza Aldrovandi and the historic food market in via Pescherie Vecchie, MERCATO DI MEZZO) and gourmet boutiques, as well as small supermarkets and grocery stores. All basic services are on the block (dry cleaners, travel-agency, bank, ATM, post office, pharmacy, grocery stores, cafés…). You can walk everywhere, main cultural sites, design and fashion stores and to the Teatro Comunale, Salaborsa (the library) and Museums. Giardini Margherita park is a block away.

MY STREET: Via Fondazza is located in a residential, quiet, green and very safe neighborhood in the medieval center of Bologna, a 10 minute scenic walk to the Due Torri (Two Towers) and another few minutes to Piazza Maggiore (the main square), and a block away from the Giardini Margherita town park, where you can relax, go jogging, enjoy the pond cafè, summer music venues and kiosks, also great for kids. Grocery stores and all basic services on the block.

Historically a street of humble origins, mostly artisan's workshops, in the 20's via Fondazza was the home of world famous painter Giorgio Morandi who was inspired to paint the people and streets of the neighborhood. Casa Morandi is now open to the public and there is also a Morandi museum in town. Bestselling writer John Grisham lived in via Fondazza while writing "The Broker" and loving the local worker's bar on the corner with Piazzetta Morandi!
In 2013 via Fondazza is the first "social street" in Italy, as residents formed a social network group to encourage and develop a community spirit among neighbors :-) This initiative has become a trend all over Italy and other countries.

Bologna is a very pleasant town with a breathtaking "centro storico" (by centro storico we mean the ancient historical town, inside the walls of what was once the medieval town). Home to the first university in the Western world, of great historic and artistic importance, today it is a multicultural trendy center with a modern and laid back lifestyle. It is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world for its art and architecture. Rainy or snowy, sunny or windy days: with its almost 40 kilometres of porticos Bologna is a unique city in the world! The food and the people will make you feel at home.

If you are visiting you will not need a car. The center is not large and everything is in walking distance. You can hire a "bicicletta", but you will love to walk and discover Bologna's tucked away alleys and secrets. Two nearby bus stops cover all main city lines. Taxi service is on call 24/7. Via Fondazza is about a 10 min taxi drive (25 min walk) to Bologna Centrale train and bus stations and approximately 20 min to Guglielmo Marconi airport. 15 minutes to the Fiera di Bologna (Trade Fair District).

you may park on the blue lines in Via Dante (near Via Fondazza) and pay by the day/hour using the red parking meters along the street (free on Sundays and holidays) . There is also a nearby covered parking in Via San Petronio Vecchio, see my guidemap for address (cost is average €20/day). You are welcome to contact me for further info about driving in Bologna, traffic limitations and parking.

Bologna train station is central to all main train destinations in Italy, easy for day trips to Florence (30 min), Venice (1 hour), Milano (1 hour), Rome (2 hours), Ravenna (1 hour 30 min) and many other must see places. The Riviera Romagnola is a short train ride too, great for a day at the beach.

By local laws, each guest must pay tourist tax and be registered with the local authorities. When you check-in at the apartment please provide your Passport or valid ID so I can make a copy of the relevant information.
Tourist tax is calculated per night, and will be charged only up to 5 nights per month. The fee will vary depending on number of occupants and nightly fee per guest per night (from €1,50 to max €3 each guest). When you confirm your reservation I will calculate the tourist tax for you.
Please have it available cash in € at check-in. If you have any questions please contact me.

TOURS: Bologna offers many city and outer-city tours to discover history, art and food. Also, it offers very good cooking and Italian language schools. There are many interesting events and festivals. To get an idea of what Bologna has to offer, you may like to check out the Bologna Welcome website while you plan your stay

HOUSE SAFETY: The central heating/hot water burner unit is new and regularly serviced; has passed the yearly safety tests and certifications. It has an inbuilt safety CO2 device. The apartment has all safety certifications but it is not specifically child-safe for babies (plugs, windows, drawers, breakables...).
