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

I have traveled to Italy 2x with the IVS for my own pleasure trips and 2x for business with IVS. These guys really pay attention and make your trip go like clockwork. Italy is nuts, just saying! There are so many rules and restrictions now, so we did not want to drive ourselves. Having traveled with them many times and done business on several occasions, most definitely USE this company. They know what they are talking about. They will save you not only MONEY but also time. Please contact me personally if you do not believe this. I am happy to tell you first hand that this company truly is awesome and will make your experience in Italy unforgettable - in a good way, of course!
