Italy still has many unexplored nooks and crannies. The expansive resort Palazzo di Varignana, originally an elegant 18th-century villa, sits in the rolling hills to the east of Bologna. This is where a relaxing holiday awaits you, not just because of the several outdoor pools, the spacious wellness centre and the numerous sports options, but mainly because you will enjoy an ocean of space here.
