The area

Close to University of Bologna and Johns Hopkins, location of our apartment is perfect for visiting professors and on sabbatical,  business and conference (BolognBologna two towersa fair district and Palazzo dei Congressi are 10 minutes far by bus) and vacation.
The apartment is located in the heart of historical Bologna, just under the Two ancient towers
Garisenda and Asinelli and  at a walking distance to Piazza Maggiore and shopping streets.
The apartment is in a very typical medieval area, with narrow streets with porticos, very quiet, safe and elegant, with small restaurants, pubs, café, galleries, shops where you can enjoy the past atmosphere.
via Inferno by nightOnce a week there is a lovely antique market for books and pictures: Celo' Celo' Mimanca" Collectors Market- at the corner Via Valdonica and Piazza S. Martino.
Most art and historic Bologna museums are within half mile, and so the Piazza Maggiore artistic complex. The Bologna University, the oldest in the world, is a quarter of mile away. So is Johns Hopkins University.

You can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Bologna city centre with absolute no worries. A popular italian song goes "In Bologna centre not even a child ever gets lost". The bus stop is just some meters away and can lead you anywhere in the town, or to the train station, the Marconi international airport, and the Exhibition District. There is a public guarded parking in a square just behind the house, and several covered garages in the centre town
