Book! These are delightful accommodations, with fabulous attention to detail. Maria is so lovely, and what an accomplished chef! I really don't think I can add anything new to what my astute fellow reviewers have already shared. We were a party of three adults in Bologna for four nights, and two of us stayed in an apartment (which was fully-equipped,... More

This b&b is in a great spot for exploring the historic centre of Bologna - 7 minutes to the main piazza. We walked all around the place and we're delighted to have our b&b to come back to and rest before going to dinner. Maria had extensive suggestions and booked us into some great restaurants. The room was very comfortable,... More

We stayed in Maria's two apartments for 6 nights and were extremely comfortable. Maria met us on arrival and provided us with a lot of brochures, books and advice on Bologna and recommendations of places to eat. The apartments had everything we needed to self cater, although we usually ate dinner at one of Bologna's many excellent restaurants (we can... More
