Opulent is an understatement when it comes to the historic Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni," which dates back to the 1700s and is situated in the heart of Bologna. With its white marble, chandeliers and grand stairway, the lobby feels like its own palace. The hallways are regal, adorned with Renaissance art, and the public spaces are decked out with magnificent antique furnishings. I Carracci restaurant (with an incredible frescoed ceiling) showcases the culinary traditions of the Emilia Romagna region, and Enoteca Morandi is ideal for private food and wine tastings. Featuring Murano glass chandeliers, the 109 guest rooms are time capsules for rich Italian traditions, while at the same time meeting modern needs. For relaxation, the wellness center features a sauna and Turkish bath.
