Bologna is one of the most popular cities of Emilia Romagna. It creates a unique mix: chaotic student life and night life next to important palaces and historical places.

In the middle of the historical centre, in fact, we’re fascinated by Palazzo Isolani, one of the best and richest historical houses in town, which dates back to XIII century. Property of Cavazza Isolani’s family, there are 1700’s rooms rich in frescoes and tapestries. Rooms can be rent for special events.

Palazzo Pepoli Campogrande is a 1600’s palace: inwards you can admire a great number of Bolognese’s masterpieces of 1600. The famous quadreria Zambeccari is set in one of the oldest room of the palace, and it’s one of the most important painting collection of the city because it includes works of Lodovico Carracci, Guercino, Albani e Passerotti, masters of Bolognese’s painting of that time.

Palazzo Bevilacqua, in via D’Azeglio, is one of the most interesting palaces in town because of its structure, which maintain the original aspect of the Renaissance – different from the common rule in town – thanks to the facade in ‘bugnato’ and a yard in the inside richly decorated by sculptures and statues.


In the end don’t forget to see Palazzo della Mercanzia, an elegant gothic palace, and Palazzo Davia Bargellini, one of the greatest palaces in Bologna because of its dimension and the noble structure.
