Located in the hills near Bologna, midway between Castel San Pietro and Bologna itself, Palazzo di Varignana is a constantly-changing venue that focuses on great food and wellbeing.

Built like an old hamlet, the resort boasts seven different complexes, which are all perfectly integrated into the surrounding hillside, referencing the modern concept of diffused hospitality. 

A lounge bar, with views of the surrounding hills, and two restaurants complement each other in terms of taste and aesthetics.

The resort’s showpiece is VARSANA SPA, an oasis of relaxation covering 3,700 m².

Today, VARSANA SPA offers guests a traditional spa itinerary that boasts a series of tubs and sensory showers, with a bio-sauna, Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, ice waterfall, sound tub, Kneipp treatment course, pool with water jets and blades, hydromassage sessions and relaxation area and is connected to a new fusion spa via a winding corridor where sensory projections will transport guests into a dreamlike world.

In summertime, Palazzo di Varignana offers its guests a choice of seven outdoor pools of varying sizes, designed to satisfy their every need.

Palazzo di Varignana covers a total of 30 hectares of parkland, 8 of which are part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani garden association.

The oak trees, with a total of 100 specimen and 76 different species, is remarkable and one of Italy’s most important woodland heritages.
