Accommodation in Bologna - Travel Guide
Italians are well known for their love of food and pride themselves with their exemplary skills in the kitchen, so when you visit Bologna, the culinary capital of Italy, you can be assured of some fine dining experiences. You can certainly expect the Bolognese to whip up a delicious sauce. This attractive medieval town is considered the best alternative in Italy after Florence, Rome and Venice for its wealth of architecture and cultural heritage – including Europe´s oldest University. Its Renaissance palaces and 40km of ochre-coloured porticoes, its awe-inspiring Gothic churches and the twin red-bricked piazzas with spewing fountains and lively atmospheres all add to Bologna´s contrasting charm and appeal. And then of course there is the passion of the locals. Long known for their strong political views and left-wing ideas, it is not uncommon for the locals to organize a demonstration of some kind in the historic Palazzi; but the Bolognese don´t need politics to be passionate, you will find they are when they eat, drink and talk. To put it simply they are just a pleasure to be around. And it´s partly because of the people that makes renting private accommodation in Bologna such a special experience, because you can almost guarantee the locals will help you out with anything you need – they´re even likely to cook for you!
When to go to Bologna
Bologna´s moderate climate makes it an ideal destination for a city break throughout the year, but visitors should still pack in preparation for random downpours of rain that can happen at any given moment albeit infrequently. August is best avoided as the heat becomes so unbearable than even the fiery locals take their vacation to somewhere else less stifling. As a result most of the local shops, cafes and restaurants close down and the only option for food is the well-known chains.
Getting to and around Bologna
Bologna is well connected to the rest of the world and most flights from around the world will arrive into Bologna´s international airport, Guglielmo Marconi. A shuttle bus to the city centre leaves every 15 minutes. Public transport in Bologna is regular and efficient, but the best way to get around is on foot or by bike, which given it is a traffic-free zone is extremely safe.
