Bologna city guide
In Bologna, let yourself be surprised
Student city Bologna’s noble past lives on in its towers, churches and palaces and the interlocking piazzas and colonnades of blood-red brick, the colour of Bologna’s greatest gift to students everywhere – spaghetti Bolognese.
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.
Trains are convenient way to reach any town and city in Europe. All main towns have a railway station, while major cities have more than two railway stations. Nearly all railway stations are located in the city centre. Check our map to locate railway station(s) in Bologna.

"Bologna-Florence June 23, 2014"Sonja v.
The only thing which was difficult to find out where the platform was in Bologna from which our train was leaving to Florence. It is better to tell customers to look at the travelnumber of the train instead of the direction. We thought to look for Florence but that was not on the screen. It was Salerno but we did not know that! So it took us a while before we understood where to go.
"Excellent service"Mikhail v. 13/11/2013
I booked a train ticked for my girlfriend to go from Dijon to Bologna and the price and the convenience was much better that with sncf.
"Great train trip"Kasia w. 13/11/2013

"Trip to Bologna"Richard s. 02/10/2013
The train from Florence to Bologna was fantastic. I went business class under the super saver option. The service was curtious, and the train was clean, comfortable and quick. I recommend the service to anyone wanting to get from Florence to Bologna.
"Milano-Bologna trip "Marina p. 01/10/2013
I'm pleased by my trip. Although I had some difficulties to find the train's platform in Milano (need to add some information in electronic tickets : train #, or/and platform # , or/and train endpoint - as in my case, Bologna wasn't an endpoint, so I was confused) . Milano Centrale is well-organized station, differently from Bologna station,which is under reconstruction now , it was hard to find a proper gate for town exit. Bologna station personnel was very helpful.
