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.

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.

"Very comfortable ride"

  Widya s. 
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.  

"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
Easy, cheap and comfortable! This train from Bologna and Florence is extremely convenient and I would recommend it to anyone!  

"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.
