Palazzo Di Varignana is an upscale resort elegantly situated on 20 hectares of land overlooking the hills of Varignana. Just 25 minutes from the southwest area of Bologna — home of the perfect Italian ragu — this historical residence is magical for families. The jewel of the resort is the VarSana Spa, offering 1,800 meters of pure relaxation (children are welcome during certain hours each day). Add to this tennis and squash courts, a panoramic gym, and a wellness trail for those who want to exercise in the outdoors. There’s also expansive botanical gardens, a maze kids love, an outdoor kids pool, and a playground, as well as large, well-appointed guest rooms with private gardens, lovely common areas, and two full-service restaurants. Parents and children alike will appreciate and enjoy the depth of offerings and the location with access to favorites like the Ferrari and Lamborghini museums, making this an excellent choice for families with kids of all ages.
