Bologna has not a mass tourism like other italian so you can live in a more authentic town and enjoy its beautiful historical rich of renaissance palaces, medieval towers, gothic churches, art gallery and the characteristic porticos where you can have nice shopping. In the centre there are periodically nice markets (See: http://www.bolognawelcome.com/en/tourist-guide/complete-directory/params/Ambiente_4/Famiglia_4.02/Sottofamiglia_4.02.03b/ref/Markets)
Bologna is located in Emilia Romagna Region just between Veneto, Lombardia and Toscana Region so in a baricentric position from where, by superhighway or railway you can easily reach many important towns, as well as the Apennini Mountains and the Adriatic seaside. Bologna is served by an important international airport and high velocity railway.
Bologna is just near the hills so you can enjoy beautiful panorama and have nice walks in the regional parks or dinner in a panoramic restaurant.
Bologna is well knew also for friendliness of its inhabitants and the marvellous cuisine. In Bologna there are important trade fair, ancient University and important economic activities and hospitals. Bologna offers also many cultural and artistic events; since 2000 is the "European Capital of Culture" and since 2006 "City of Music" UNESCO.
Little Cottage is in a residential area well served by shops, supermarket, banks, pharmacy and bus stop. Nearby there is the town park Giardini Margherita and you can arrive easily in the centre of the town with 15/20 min walking under the porticos during which you can enjoy very interesting monuments and buildings, bars and shops.
The area, on the east side of the town, is also very good contected both to the centre of the town and the outside. so you can easily reach to the airport, the rail and bus station and to the freeway.
