La Torre Medioevale rises in a tiny medieval town, Marne, not far from its handsome Castle. The tower’s ancient structure is at one with its surroundings; on the other hand, findings in this area of Lombardy around the city of Bergamo indicate that it has been inhabited since before the Middle Ages, in fact since prehistoric times, and during the Roman Empire a road was built to link Bergamo and Milan. Today, Bergamo is the capital of the homonymous province and one of the most beautiful cities of Lombardy, a real jewel with its art and its medieval and Renaissance architecture, which can be reached after a 30 minutes’ drive. The historic city of Monza and bustling Milan are respectively 30 km and 1 hour from La Torre Medioevale, while the fun park of Leolandia is only 10 minutes away.
La Torre Medioevale is a splendid square tower of three storeys, with walls of bricks and stones, and graceful, slender brick columns that support the roof of the elevated portico, which was typical of a number of similar buildings of the Middle Ages. The Tower was in fact built in 1100, and has now been competently and lovingly restored. On stepping in to La Torre Medioevale one seems to be transported back in time, but without relinquishing any modern comforts, including Wi-Fi access. Simply and carefully furnished, the interiors are in harmony with the ancient structure and have a unique character, with their exposed beams, brickwork and stone.
The three apartments of La Torre Medioevale offer comfort as well as privacy. They are different from one another, but they all have their own entrance and a self-service breakfast is supplied. One of the apartments is 75 sqm, extends over three floors and has a little terrace; another one is 30 sqm and is situated on the ground floor, with access to its own patio. The third apartment is a large studio flat, 60 sqm, with an impressive barrel vault and the use of a garden; it is located, quite fittingly, in the old cellars.
