Trip Report A Short Weekend in Bologna (Short Trip Report)

Jump to last reply

We spent 2 lovely nights in Bologna in mid June with our 2 college-aged kids. We loved our stay and came away thinking that Bologna is quite an under-rated gem of a city. The streets are beautiful, and the food is delicious!

We had two rooms in a lovely B and B -- Antica Casa Zucchini. We really enjoyed it and found it to be an excellent value! I posted a review on Tripadvisor for this if you’re interested in the details.

HIGHLIGHTS of our STAY:

Just walking.... the city streets are gorgeous, with lovely and unique porticos and charming piazzas.

Piazza Galvani and ZANARI cafe - a very picturesque place to sit and have a cocktail, a glass of wine, or a coffee.

Lunch at A. F. Tamburini -- buffet style and DELICIOUS!

Our Le Guide d’Art half-day walking tour - which included a historical and cultural tour of the city. We loved the whole experience and highly recommend it. Highlights of the tour included our walk through the food market streets, our tour of Basilica di Santo Stefano (which is made up of seven churches built over 1,000 years), and the tour of the original site of the University of Bologna, the Archiginnasio.

EATALY -- we enjoyed a glass of wine and some cheese and salumi here one afternoon-- quite delicious!!

OUR TWO DINNERS: so many incredible restaurants made it nearly impossible to decide. i don’t even remember how or why we narrowed it down to these two, but both were fantastic choices.

Trattoria Gianni (Via Claveture, 18) just off of Piazza Maggiore. fabulous dinner, filled with Italians.

al Pappagalo -- famous restaurant that my husband really wanted to try. food was delicious!

While we felt two nights (basically one full day and an afternoon) barely scratched the surface of this beautiful city, we were quite content with our “taste” of Bologna and are confident we’ll be back for more!
