Villa Aretusi

Villa Aretusi is an elegant structure on the outskirts of Bologna dating back to the ‘600, once the home of the Bolognese painter Cesare Aretusi. The extension of the original structure, whose interiors have been preserved, with a terrace overlooking San Luca and a large garden with gazebo make Villa Aretusi the ideal location for weddings, ceremonies and special occasions.

Located on the first floor, reachable with an internal lift, the Sotto l’Arco Restaurant plays the cards of elegance and tradition. On the floors there’s the marble Venetian typical of Bologna, protected by the Fine Arts, and on the walls with scarlet bands hang the handmade linen curtains.
