Antica Casa Zucchini, a sixteenth-century residence transformed into a bed and breakfast, is located in the historic center of Bologna, a short distance from Piazza Maggiore. The antique furnishings, together with the high frescoed ceilings, the wooden furniture and the Venetian flooring, embellish 3 elegant and spacious rooms equipped with all comforts. Guests can relax in the common library and enjoy a daily continental breakfast with homemade pastries.
LOCATION AND TRANSPORT
The bed and breakfast is a 3-minute walk from Piazza Santo Stefano and less than 10 from Piazza Maggiore, the Basilica of San Petronio and the Two Towers. A 5-minute walk away is also the bus stop that takes you to the Central Station in 10 minutes. The Marconi Express shuttle leaves from the station and takes you to G. Marconi airport in about ten minutes.
The rooms are furnished in a classic style with antique wooden furniture, frescoed vaulted ceilings, wrought iron sofas and elegant curtains. They have air conditioning, LCD TV and bathroom with shower and hairdryer. Each room has its own characteristic: Cornelia includes an adjoining room with a fireplace, Cesare overlooks the internal courtyard and Guido is distinguished by the irregularity of the shape and the decorated walls.
