I Portici Hotel is positioned in a prominent location right in the old town centre of Bologna, just a few steps away from the Central train station and a stone’s throw from the major points of interest.
This little gem of style and elegance is housed in the Maccaferri Palace, a 5-floor building from the 19th century. The eclectic style building was designed by Attilio Muggia around 1900, following the creation of the new Via Indipendenza planned, already in 1860, as a direct axis from Piazza Maggiore to the Central station, and finished in the late nineteenth century.
The building experiments, with great mastery, the reinforced concrete techniques and adapts to classicism in vogue in the early twentieth century.
Following an accurate restoration that brought back 1500 square meters of hidden frescoes to its original splendour, I Portici Hotel offers a welcoming feel in a cozy environment of refined liberty dècor atmosphere infused with contemporary Italian and international design. An ideal starting point for exploring Bologna.
