About Italy

Bologna has one of the largest historical centre in Europe. Here, you will admire the main square dating back from the 15th century: the Piazza Maggiore, and its numerous medieval edifices.

Among them you should visit the Town Hall in the Palazzo d’Accursio, the beautiful Palazzo del Podesta and the gothic Basilica of San Petronio. Nearby is the Piazza del Nettuno where you’ll be astonished by the Fountain of Neptune.

To appreciate a large view on the city, climb up to the top of one of the high nobiliary Torre Pendenti. Enjoy strolling under the world-famous Bologna’s Porticoes and let yourself be seduced by the gastronomy: its unrivalled mortadella, its delicious pastas, cheeses and wines.

    Typical Italian train |
    "To continue with my review of Munich to Bologna train, this is the 2nd part of the travel from Bologna to Florence. It's not my first time on Frecciarossa/Trenitalia, so I call this a typical Italian train ride. Seats are a bit narrower and more packed than the DB train. Nothing bad, just a comparison with DB train. "

    Winter wonderland |
    "Was traveling with my brother from Munich to Rome. We picked the day train instead of overnight train in hopes of enjoying wonderful scenery. The route was broke into 2 parts, 1st from Munich to Bologna on DB (German's train) and onward to Florence on Frecciarossa (Italy's train). Scenery didn't let us down, the snowy picturesque hill view in Austria (just passing by, not a stop) was stunning and breath-taking. The ticket price "

    Ok ride, bad porters |
    "My train arrived late from Rome so I had less than five minutes to get on Bologna-Munich train. I was 'helped' by porters at the Bologna train station with my heavy luggage, but when they wanted more money I refused and I was harassed. I think the police should control these "porters" as they were threatening and awful. "

    Very comfortable ride |
    "I had the whole compartment to myself so it was a very comfortable train ride. The food selection and quality are good. However the train was late arriving in Bologna and I almost missed by connecting train to Munich. "
