About the property

Residence Opera

The Residence Opera is located in one of Bologna’s important streets: Strada Maggiore, with its majestic arcades alongside the street on both sides, where many remarkable and renowned residential buildings find a place. This specific building covers a wide portion, extending until Vicolo Bolognetti. Here, in the 1700s, there was the open-air theater: that's why the concept and the name of the Residence.

The Residence was restored in 2016 and offers numerous apartments with high ceilings, some of them with beautiful frescoes, and refined furniture.

The building winds among terraces and balconies, giving unique views of Bologna’s roofs and the church of “Santa Maria dei Servi”.

Each apartment has an Opera's name and it is decorated with pictures of "Teatro Comunale" of Bologna.

Along the way, that leads directly under the two towers, there are also important museums like the music museum of Bologna, the “Davia Bargellini Museum” and the famous “Corte Isolani” one of the most charming places for shopping between art and culture.

Great apartmemt, perfect size and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well appointed and easy in/out. Very nice and helpful staff on call and responsive whenever needed. Apartment amenities were perfect and we really enjoyed the common space, as we had several local and visiting friends stop by for a glass of wine and some catching up time.

Beautiful Apartment, Central Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a 2 week holiday in this apartment and can not fault it in anyway. It is very close to the city centre and close to 2 local food shops but is quiet, very well equipped and has very efficient air conditioning (which was very welcome with temperatures between 32 & 38 degrees!!).

Bologna is a stunning city. We explored it's cool porticoed streets (including the longest portico in the world leading up to the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca), we explored Florence & Venice by train & hired a car for a couple of days to explore the coast & Lake Garda. And the food!!! There are lots of great restaurants serving the local specialties within walking distance.

In the main we're quite self sufficient but whenever we needed help or advice Letizia, in the office, right next door, was brilliant.

Thank you Francesca & Letizia for a fantastic holiday.

A Perfect Place in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is great!! Not only is the location within minutes of the Two Towers and the center of Bologna, the apartment is perfect. The owner's attention to every detail could not be better. The unit is beautifully appointed and there is even a lift in the building if the stairs prove too much. And Letizia in the management office was incredibly helpful, looking after our every request. This truly is a gorgeous 3 room apartment in beautiful Bologna. I highly recommend it.
