Bologna

Cities and Towns in Emilia-Romagna

Bologna is the capital city of of the northeastern region of Emilia-Romagna, is the food capital of Italy, a thriving business city and a major university town with a red-bricked Historic Centre.
 
In spite of two leaning towers (outdoing Pisa's in the region of Tuscany) in addition to  a wealth of other attractions, Bologna is largely free from tourist crowds and well worth a visit. It is also one of Europe's most important conferences cities.
 
The city dates back to to over 2,500 years and saw its glory days around the 12th century when students from all over Europe flocked to study here, in what was then a major city in the Papal States.
 
It is not just the city centre's bricks that are red. Bologna is known for its passionate interest in politics. Socialism and communism have played a major role of Bolognese life, ever since determined partisan resistance in World War II.
 
Summers are what most would consider hot and humid, with the average temperature around  (32°C in Jul/Aug). However, the summer is full of festivities. Seek solace in the shady porticos which stretch for a lengthy 40km along major streets of the Old Town. In winter, the temperature drops to below 10°C (Jan/Feb). The best time to visit is spring and autumn.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
