Trip Report 2 Days in Bologna

Jump to last reply

I'm finally finishing up my "travelogue" on our trip to Italy Fall 2015. We only spent two days in Bologna as an interlude between Florence and Venice. I wasn't expecting much but we LOVED it! I would absolutely return if I had the opportunity and I'm so glad we included it in our itinerary. (This is where using a travel agent helps - I wouldn't have thought to include it if our TA hadn't suggested it.)

One notable thing about Bologna is that it feels like a "real" city. Locals going to work, shopping, living their lives. All seemingly happy while doing so. Maybe because of the GREAT FOOD! We didn't have a bad meal in all of Italy but Bologna was truly outstanding. I've posted reviews and pix here of recommended restaurants: https://polloplayer.wordpress.com/2016/02/13/two-days-and-10000-calories-in-bologna/

We had rain during our stay but so many of the old city streets are covered that you can walk around regardless of the weather. Charming in an authentic way.

We stayed at the Hotel Majestic Gia Baglioni where we were upgraded to a lovely junior suite, I think because of our travel agent's Virtuoso affiliation. I would absolutely stay there again if/when we return.

I wish we had had a little more time there to delve into the history of the city. Next time...
