Locanda Spadoni is a splendid edifice in Faenza, a beautiful city situated in the Ravenna province, Emilia-Romagna. Visitors to the area will be spoilt for choice for things to do and see; in fact the origins of Faenza are ancient, its original settlers being Etruscans and Celts. Its many attractions include the International Museum of Ceramics, which holds a unique collection that spans centuries, from the antiquity to the present day, and is also a world-renowned research centre; the Museum of the Neoclassical Age, which is appropriately housed in the handsome Palazzo Milzetti, and the Pinacoteca Comunale, which contains a rich collection of paintings and drawings dating from 1797 to modern times.
In the heart of Faenza are two squares, where visitors and locals gather: Piazza della Libertà with its truly Monumental Fountain and the Cathedral, and Piazza del Popolo, lined with two eminent palaces, Palazzo del Podestà and Palazzo Manfredi. Faenza is also favourably situated, within easy reach of other magnificent cities, like Forlì, Imola, Ravenna, Bologna and, just a little farther away, the Republic of San Marino. The Locanda is part of Casa Spadoni, a company founded in 2014 that aims to develop projects and promote the products of Molino Spadoni together with the gastronomic specialities of Emilia-Romagna. Locanda Spadoni is just next door to a spacious restaurant that is the pride and joy of the owners: divided into several rooms, the restaurant serves the best traditional food of the region and the culinary creations of the chefs; beer produced at a craft brewery and fine wines from the house cellar are served with lunch and evening menus. The restaurant offers an excellent service; it is open for cocktail hour, and is also available for parties and events. Casa Spadoni produces baking supplies, bread, pizzas, focacce and breakfast biscuits; those who prefer a continental breakfast can choose from delicious cold meats and cheeses, and a variety of gluten-free products are on offer to accommodate the needs of everyone.
Locanda Spadoni is ideal for a peaceful stay on the outskirts of Faenza, just 3 km away from the city centre. Originally a silk factory, the handsome old building has been lovingly restored and furnished with antiques; it has kept the air of past times, but its charming rooms are also equipped with all the comforts necessary for a pleasurable rest, including Wi-Fi, TV and mini bar. Locanda Spadoni has been designed to offer an unforgettable holiday experience to its guests: this historic building in fact houses the “Circolo degli Artisti” the setting for theatre productions, cinema evenings and charity dinners. The owners are also incredibly knowledgeable and happy to advise on Faenza attractions as well as on the many itineraries available to explore the province of Ravenna and surroundings; with their help guests are certain to get the most out of their stay in Emilia-Romagna.
