Description: PetronillaLocated in the heart of Bergamo's Città Bassa, Petronilla stands in a painstakingly restored and modernised mansion, owned by the same family since 1853. This boutique property now offers luxurious accommodation in a highly individual, sophisticated but friendly atmosphere.
Just a few hundred metres from the Via XX Settembre, one of the most fashionable shopping streets in Bergamo, Petronilla is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful city. The funicular railway to the Città Alta is just a quarter of an hour's walk away, and many of Bergamo's most important sights and attractions are within easy reach from here,including the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Piazza Vecchia and the Palazzo della Ragione.
A delicious buffet breakfast is served every morning in the two dining rooms or, in warm months, in the internal courtyard. There is also a comfortable lounge bar, where fine wines, cocktails and snacks are served. Guests can also take advantage of the basement Wellness Zone, which has a fitness area, an infra-red sauna, and hydro-massage facilities.
