A modern and elegant spa hotel in a quiet spot near Bologna – includes breakfast, spa access, a suite option, and spa and dining discounts

Set in rural Bologna, Palazzo di Varignana offers an intimate stay steeped in the area's rich history – from here you're close to many stunning archaeological sites, which are full of frescoes and mosaics. The resort's storied surrounds, along with a generously proportioned wellness area – complete with indoor pool, sensory showers and luxe treatment rooms – will have you truly understand Italian charm day-in, day-out.

When you're not meandering around the medieval network of Bologna itself, there's plenty to keep you occupied on site. Join a meditation or yoga class, Nordic-walk, trek or cycle, or learn a new skill with a cookery class or two. There's a golf course just 10 minutes away by car, or head to Attilio Beach Club for some time on the Italian sands. Palazzo di Varignana has earned itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €2 per person, per night is payable at the hotel upon check-out.
