The flat is homely, large and has been refurbished with all the comforts you would want (WIFI internet, dishwasher, washing machine, dvd player, etc). Perfect for a holiday or a work stay especially if you're coming by car (it is one traffic light off the highway and the city's ring road and has a big parking) or train (direct bus line fron train station).
Perfect to discover BOLOGNA, maybe using our BYCICLES for a great ride through small streets and parks.

The Emilia Romagna region
Emilia-Romagna has long been overlooked as little more than a stepping stone between the Veneto and Tuscany. But take time to explore this underrated region and you will discover an area rich in art and culture, an area of mouthwatering food and robust wine, of cosmopolitan resorts and quiet backwaters.
Much of its medieval architecture dates to the Renaissance, when a handful of powerful families set up court here: the Farnese in PARMA and PIACENZA, the Este in FERRARA and MODENA, and the Bentivoglio in BOLOGNA.
The regional capital, BOLOGNA, is one of Italy as unsung joys. A foodie city with a hedonistic approach to life, home to Europe's oldest university and a stunning medieval centre. A short hop to the northwest, MODENA boasts a superb Romanesque cathedral and a hint of the gourmet delights that await in PARMA, the city that gifted the world prosciutto crudo (cured ham, popularly known as Parma ham) and parmigiano reggiano (Parmesan). In the countryside to the south, castles pepper hilltops as flat plains give way to the Apennine peaks. FERRARA and RAVENNA are the highlights of Romagna (the eastern half of Emilia-Romagna).
Both are within easy distance of Bologna and both merit a visit! Ferrara for its beautiful Renaissance centre, Ravenna for its sensational Byzantine mosaics. If, after all that high culture, you need a break, head to Rimini where the crowded beaches and cutting-edge clubs promise more earthy pleasures, or San Marino where armies of day-trippers enjoy vast views. Alternatively, saddle up and take to the road Ã¢?? cycling is one of the regionÃ¢??s most popular pursuits.

Boasting one of the country's great medieval cityscapes Ã¢ - an eye-catching ensemble of red-brick palazzi, Renaissance towers and 40km of arcaded porticoes - Bologna is a wonderful alternative to the north's more famous cities. Italy's culinary capital, it's an attractive, animated place; a large student population and active gay scene ensure a vitality that's so often missing in many of Emilia's smaller towns.
Nicknamed la rossa ("the red" as much a political moniker as reference to its colourful buildings), Bologna has long had a reputation for left-wing militancy. Passions have cooled since students faced down tanks in 1977, but the city remains highly political. Italian prime minister Romano Prodi is from Bologna and the university, Europe's oldest, is still a source of student agitation.
