About the location
Holidays in Bologna will take you to one of Italy’s most elegant and exciting cities. Among the weaving porticoes and medieval towers, you will experience spirited markets and bustling arcades, all in a city that continues to feel vibrant and welcoming long into the evening. Bologna holds international acclaim for its food, architecture and automobile design, while retaining an authentic and intimate city centre where each street exhibits the city’s historical and social roots. Whether you are looking to taste the local tortelli al tartufo nero underneath the shadows of the famous Due Torri or for relaxing evenings spent strolling through the Colli district to watch the sun set over the skyline, you will find much to enjoy in this remarkable city.

Bologna’s food culture could entertain and fascinate even the most experienced gastronome. It is commonplace to witness the making of fresh pasta and the tasting of locally made burrata when walking around the central piazza. Alongside these delights, Bologna hosts over fifty museums displaying work from renowned historical figures such as Michelangelo, Raphael and Mozart, as well as prestigious modern institutions such as the MAMbo, Museo D’arte Moderna Di Bologna, which maintain a thriving contemporary art scene.
