“Great choice in Modena!!”

We have been to Emilia Romagna in a previous trip, and were looking for a new 'base' for our second installment. It is fair to say we picked Modena since we found Roberta's apartment. We always like staying in professionally run properties in historic centers.

The apartment is great, with top-notch owners. While it fits the bill of "professionally run" (e.g., it is maintained and equipped for guests vs. properties where guests fill in between owner stays!), we benefited from the first hand warmth of the owners. My best description would be that Roberta and Giorgio took a lot of personal care and pride in the property they are offering.

The pictures online are all accurate. In fact, we were suprised to see that the rooms were bigger than expected. Each one had closets, with drawers and a space on top to store your luggage after you unpacked.

One of the 'tradeoffs' with staying at historic centers would be parking (since we explore other small towns via a car rental). That issue was neutralized by Roberta and Giorgio. Roberta asked me to text her 30 mins before we arrive and provide our license plate. By the time we arrived in Modena, she and Giorgio PARKED their own car to ensure we have a spot in front of the property on arrival! Since the center's access to traffic was controlled, we never had any issues parking as well (and it is free!).

The property is steps away from the Duomo but on a quieter sidestreet. So you get the best of both worlds - you are able to walk to everything but have the ability to park as well at the property.

Roberta and Giorgio's apartment is one of the best we've had in terms of amenities. They did not stop at 'basic' supplies to last an evening. We've stayed in many, many locations (hotels/apartments) and in terms of being thoughtfully appointed, they had EVERYTHING. A couple of liters of cold bottled water, basic snacks and breakfast items, even options for local or drip-style coffee makers. This was significant if you're arriving directly from a red-eye flight.

As noted in previous reviews (and Roberta's overview) - the apartment is on the 4th floor. And since European buildings count the first as 0 - that would be 5 flights up. We were able to manage that with no issue but the apartment being well equipped removed our need to run out for basics. That said, when we were 'restocking' for water, beverages, fruit, bread - the apartment is located a block away from the historic Mercato Albinelli (open till 2pm). There is also a big bank across the street if you need to access an ATM.

Roberta and Giorgio also had lists of their local restaurant recommendations in their guest binder. For any visitors to Emilia Romagna, their cuisine is their "major attraction" so we tried out all the recommendations they had. They were wonderful and all full of locals.

The apartment is well located to everything. Some of the recommended restaurants initially appeared to look farther than it is on the map but with the Modena center being so compact, everything is within a short walk. This afforded us the ability to explore and poke around local shops including an artisan leather shop around the corner, the creamery where locals buy " to go" treats.

Very cool and modern apartment in the very center of Modena, just 100 m away from the Duomo... Do not miss to visit the "22 Selmi" restaurant nearby.
