About Bologna City Centre

As the historic capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna is a fascinating city to explore. Its picturesque medieval core is anchored by the grand Piazza Maggiore, lined with cafes, colonnades and street musicians. A string of big-ticket sights surrounds the piazza, including City Hall, the Fountain of Neptune and the magnificent Basilica di San Petronio.

To the east of the city lie the Towers of Bologna. Now bona fide city icons, the medieval towers were built in the 12th century and soar above the city to this day. Founded in 1088, the University of Bologna is considered the oldest university in the Western world. Historic university buildings dot the city centre, housing a string of fantastic museums. Bologna’s student population also means the city serves up a vibrant nightlife scene.

By far, the best way to explore the city’s medieval heart is by foot. Bologna is also serviced by an efficient bus system, offering connections in and around the city centre, as well as outer suburbs. From Bologna Centrale railway station, the historic city centre is a short 20-minute stroll south. From the airport, it’s a 20-minute drive or 45-minute bus ride.

For foodies, Bologna is a culinary paradise. Locals refer to it as La Grassa or the Fat One. It is a reference to its rich food legacy, which spotlights local produce and full-on flavours. As well as a colourful market district, the city is home to some of Italy’s finest restaurants and trattorias. Of course, sampling the city’s world famous “Spaghetti alla Bolognese” is a rite of passage.
