Two days in Bologna in May - Things to See?

Jump to last reply

...well, actually three nights, but the bulk of one day will be a day-trip to Ravenna.

FYI: Wife and I are arriving on a morning train from Venice and departing on an early morning Air France flight to CDG -- got a $43 fare. Staying three nights at the Hotel Internazionale.

I'd appreciate any suggestions for things to see and do during our two days (more like 1.5 days) in Bologna.

The Bologna tourism site has a number of good-looking walks, so I'd like to narrow it down, based on some of your recommendations.

We like art, history, architecture, parks and just wandering around interesting neighborhoods. We're not really foodies, so cheap eats recommendations are welcome.

We usually like to visit a museum of the city, if there is one (think Carnavalet in Paris), though my Italian is not great, so if such a museum only has descriptions in Italian, that could be a minor problem.

Thanks, Fodorites, for any and all suggestions.
