Torre Prendiparte, Bologna

(4.4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Un luogo permeato di storia, il succedersi di dodici camere in una vertiginosa salita che lentamente porta alla terrazza panoramica.

A sessanta metri la vista su Bologna è da lasciare senza fiato e tutto contribuisce a creare una atmosfera speciale, per conservare un indelebile ricordo.

La cura dei particolari, i mobili d’epoca, le ambientazioni suggestive rappresenteranno la cornice ideale per celebrare una relazione, per enfatizzare i sentimenti migliori, per suggellare un accordo di lavoro e per presentare importanti progetti.

Dopo aver rappresentato nel medioevo l’inattaccabile baluardo della Famiglia Prendiparte, La Torre si apre ora a chi sappia apprezzarne l’unicità, per vivere momenti di vera e coinvolgente emozione.

  • I celebrated my wife's 50 years by booking a dinner for 12 and overnight for us 3 in the tower. Magnificent experience enhanced by the histrionic Matthew who led us to the discovery of a piece of Bologna and he immersed in a tale of times past. Great wines, great dinner personalized and romantic night for this experience that I would highly recommend ... Then in the morning very nice surprise with the "Royal".

  • I'm in bologna and as such am used to visit the old town with its towers, the Prendiparte Tower, I am proud to say, is the pride of this town, I got to chat with Matthew, own, dedicated firsthand to the management of this cultural heritage, which can follow minutely every detail with commendable skill and precision. Thanks to the family Giovanardi today anyone (for a minimum of 30 € for the cheaper, invested in the best way) can admire Bologna from above by taking a relaxing break and breaking away from the daily grind. I'll be back soon in this gem of the city make an effort and, with renewed interest.

  • We were fortunate to stay one night at this property absolutely extraordinary. In fact, in addition to visits with different "interpretations" is also a true bed and breakfast (I write here because I have not found other pages devoted specifically to the bed and breakfast). It is a medieval tower in which low floors has been converted into a small apartment, an entrance on the ground floor, a room on the first floor with the bedroom area (extensively) with loft and kitchen upstairs. The upper part is required for various activities designed and orchestrated by the volcanic and very nice owner. We were met on the evening of Epiphany with a wide and detailed visit of the entire Tower ended in a toast on the roof, to 60 meters high with a breathtaking view over the city. Then the friendly host greeted us and gives us the keys to enjoying the rest of the evening and the next morning. A totally unique experience! It should be noted that (obviously) there are many stairs too steep.

  • Beautiful and well maintained, the owner tells the story, was for a time imprisoned and still bearing the markings of the detainees. Nice bed and breakfast, also from the point of view of being the only ones who live there for one night is very impressive. On Friday, guided tours are possible with an aperitif on the roof of the tower. You can enjoy a view of Bologna and the two towers.

  • Beautiful tower placed in the historical context of Bologna. One can visit on certain days by appointment. He has a room used as a bed and breakfast. Virtually around my Office I pass often

  • One of the two most famous sister towers, is also called "capped" for the reason that decorates the top. It was used as a prison by the Archbishop.

  • One of the towers of Bologna that arrived intact until today. The Tower overlooks a small square in stark contrast to his Majesty and the momentum; This helps raise the wonder and amazement that the Tower evokes in the Viewer.

  • A historic Tower of Bologna, built in the 12th century. Today is a bed and breakfast with a room alone, but periodically hosts guided tours-the Tour-Towers to the top and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of Bologna from the top.
