Palazzo di Varignana

Wrapped in the magic of the Bolognese hills, Palazzo di Varignana dominates from above the town from which it takes its name. The heart of the resort is Palazzo Bentivoglio, a country castle dating back to 1705. Surrounding the complex are 30 hectares of land including vast green spaces, breathtaking views and an Ornamental Garden, included in the prestigious network Grandi Giardini Italiani.

Palazzo di Varignana is located just 19 km from Bologna, and is the perfect space for conferences, meetings, weddings and team building.

The conference spaces count 8 meeting rooms and a 300-square-meter conference center, whose plenary hall can accommodate up to 280 people and can be divided into three rooms, thanks to modular walls.

The Convention Center is directly connected, through the amazing Wunderkammer, to the Belvedere Space, 770 sq. m. of multifunctional space on two levels that has undergone a recent restyling of its interior spaces.

The resort offers 150 rooms and suites developed on 7 different complexes and is equipped with a 4000sqm SPA area with 7 outdoor pools and remise en forme paths, 4 restaurants, including the Royal Train - Carriage Restaurant, an authentic carriage dated 1921, ideal for exclusive events for up to 20 people.   

In addition, the resort is enriched with a collection of 6 luxury villas, which can host meetings or mini-incentives for top management from 8 to 12 people.
