Where we are

The building is in the heart of Bologna’s city center, in a quiet street parallel to the main Via dell’Indipendenza, a 5-minute walk from Piazza Maggiore, the main square, the famous Two Towers and from the many bars and restaurants in which you can fully taste the best typical cuisine and more!
