The fat, the red and the beautiful
Every Italian city conceals a treasure waiting to be discovered and Bologna is certainly no exception. Throughout its course of history, culture and education – hosting one of the oldest universities in Italy – have combined well over the years, hence the nickname ‘the intellectual’, and also boasting one of the most vibrant culinary traditions throughout the Peninsula: handmade pasta, desserts, sauces and much more, ideal for taste but not so much for the waistline (thus the nickname ‘the fat’).
Either a long-term stay
or a quick break in the city centre
, within walking distance to Piazza Maggiore and the Basilica of San Petronio, is possible thanks to Halldis, who offer serviced apartments for all tastes and requirements, where you can experience in total tranquillity the beauty of a city which has ably managed to preserve its medieval past and earned it the nickname ‘the red’ thanks to the colour of its picturesque rooftops.
Staying in the city centre of Bologna translates into being a stone’s throw away from the Two Towers ( Torre degli Asinelli and Torre dei Garisenda), from where you can enjoy a splendid panorama, including the sea and the Alps, the Giorgio Morandi Museum, which hosts paintings of this illustrious Bolognese artist, the Basilica of Santo Stefano and the university buildings in Via Zamboni.
Visiting the city is very straightforward and you can choose between walking and public transport, taking the opportunity to tackle some shopping along Via Rizzoli or in the Jewish Ghetto.
For those travelling by train, we are also able to offer
conveniently located accommodations
near the central station which is very well-connected to the city centre by buses offering a shuttle service.
Bologna is also the venue of a major exhibition centre, which hosts, amongst others, the renowned Cosmoprof, the world’s leading trade fair in the field of beauty and professional cosmetics.
Why not balance your business and leisure by taking advantage of a comfortable holiday home
, which all the family can enjoy, with the added incentive of having the sunny Adriatic Riviera at your doorstep.
