Hercolani - Lovely studio apt in city centre Palazzo Banchi

Located in: Bologna
This comfortable studio apartment (40 sq.mt) is on the 3rd floor, with elevator (chair lift up to the1st floor), in Palazzo Banchi. Located in the very heart of Bologna city centre, on the eastern side of Piazza Maggiore, it is placed right beside San Petronio Basilica and is named after the Medieval bank shops. The building dates back to 1412, whist the façade and the ‘portico’ were finished in 1568; in 2010 Palazzo Banchi was fully renovated, and it has been newly furnished in August 2014.
The apartment opens onto a hall way that leads into the living area, fitted with a polished oak parquet flooring. Here you find the open plan kitchen, fully equipped with electric oven and dishwasher, and an elegant dining corner (with a table for 2). Next to it and slightly separated there is the night area, where you find a double bed (composed by two single beds), a wardrobe and a pouf. The bedroom offers lovely views of Bologna roofs, stretching to the hills surrounding the city centre. The bathroom has a big shower stall; also here you have ample views of part of Bologna historical centre (the copper dome of Santa Maria della Vita sanctuary).
The apartment has high-end finishes, such as air conditioning, independent heating, and sound-proofed, insulated windows and doors. The furniture is completed by some refined pieces of modern art and lithographs of famous Italian artists, that bestow an elegant, refined atmosphere to the ambience.
Area The building is located right in Bologna city centre: Piazza Maggiore is the city’s main square and is surrounded by some of its most precious buildings. The oldest one is Palazzo Podestà, dating back to 1200 and dominated by the Arengo Tower; Palazzo Re Enzo, famous for its cross vaults, is right at the back. Opposite Palazzo dei Banchi you find Palazzo d'Accursio, a monumental architectonical complex dating back to the XIV century home to Bologna town hall. On the fourth side of the square there is San Petronio Basilica, a brilliant example of Italian gothic, started at the end of the XIV century and never completed. Palazzo Banchi is connected to the most important ‘portico’ in Italy - known as Pavaglione- developing from Piazza Maggiore to Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, that first hosted Bologna university. Nowadays the university is located at approx. 5 minutes on foot from the building, in via Zamboni; in the vicinity you also find the Teatro Comunale, largely renowned for the opera season.
The most important historic sights of Bologna are just minutes away, such as Piazza Santo Stefano (with seven churches built one into the other and the Corte Isolani) and the Two Towers (Torre degli Asinelli and Torre della Garisenda). The ‘portico’ of Palazzo dei Banchi is one of the fourth sides of the ‘Quadrilatero’: a complex of pedestrian streets filled with mouthwatering shops offering the best products of the area (hand-made pasta, sausages, wine) and fresh groceries. And if you miss shopping, enjoy a spree around via Indipendenza, the boutiques of Galleria Cavour and the refined shops of via Farini and via d'Azeglio.
Public transports The closet bus stop is located in via Rizzoli and allows to quickly reach the railway station (take here the shuttle bus to the airport), to Bologna fair and the main hospitals. All the major sights in Bologna are within walking distance.
Parking The apartment is located in a Limited Traffic Area (ZTL). On Saturdays and Sundays the city centre is a pedestrian area. You can park in the nearby Piazza Galvani, accessed from via Farini, or you can leave your car in Piazza VIII Agosto, at 5 minutes on foot from Piazza Maggiore.
The closest garages are located in Via Carbonara (Garage San Pietro) and in Via Valdonica (Autorimessa Piemonte). You can opt for a monthly ticket respectively at 300€/month and 200€/month. Both garages are open 24h a day and provide the guests with remote control.
Driving in Bologna city centre: For stays longer than 3 months: you can ask for the permit to enter the city centre. For short-term stays: you are allowed to enter the city centre by car (only for 3 days per month). The access is granted by a ticket (5,00€) that can be bought at the ATC points located in: Via Marconi 4 (at the corner of via Lame); Via IV Novembre, 16/a; Via Rizzoli 1/d.
Otherwise you can leave your car in the nearby parking of Piazza 8 Agosto (20,00€/day; or 200,00€/month).
