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.

"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.
