Bologna, road junction of primary importance since Roman times, is today the center of a transport network of vital importance in Europe and Italy.
- By plane
The “Guglielmo Marconi” Airport, 15 minutes by bus from City Centre, connects Bologna to the main Italian and European airports.
- By train
For the strategic geographic location – between downtown and the north – Bologna is the main Italian railway junction, made even more efficient by the high-speed trains, which, together with the new railway station project, will lead to greater development and a significant increase of daily transit of trains and passengers.

Rich in art and history, Bologna will amaze the visitor in all seasons, with its enjoyable and lively summer atmosphere or with the magic of Christmas illuminations.
A first look at the city is from the beautiful Piazza Maggiore where medieval palaces look down upon an intense public life and economic activity. They perfectly combine with modernity, while preserving their antique charm. For instance Palazzo d’Accursio, seat of the municipal administration, houses inside its ancient walls the Art Nouveau-style Sala Borsa (ex stock exchange) as well as Roman archaeological excavations, visible from a modern glass floor.
Among the symbols of Bologna there are the Neptune Fountain by Giambologna and Tommaso Laureti, and the medieval towers, particularly the magnificent Two Towers: Asinelli tower (98 m) and its neighbouring “twin” Garisenda (48 m, also mentioned in Dante’s Inferno).
Alma Mater Studiorum is the oldest Western University. Its first prestigious seat was the Archiginnasio, whose walls are decorated with the coats of arms of the students. Here it is possible to visit the Anatomical Theatre, where practical lessons of cadaver dissection took place in the past.
Walking along the ancient streets and the never-ending porticoes, canals are an unexpected surprise. They date back to the 12th century and can be visited underground too.
A rich heritage of art is housed in the numerous Museums and Galleries, mostly with free admission, as well as in the multitude of religious buildings. Among them, a special mention should be made to the Abbey of Santo Stefano called the “Seven Churches”, the complex of San Domenico with the Saint’s marble tomb by Nicolò dall’Arca and decorated with Michelangelo’s sculptures, and the church of Santa Maria della Vita which houses another Nicolò dall’Arca’s masterpiece, the Pietà sculpture (Lamentation over the Dead Christ).
A few minutes from the historical centre, the Bologna hills to the South represent an important parkland, where it is possible to enjoy a beautiful view of the city. Architectural and monumental jewels like villas, churches and monasteries are hidden there. Among them, Villa Aldini, built by Napoleon’s minister Antonio Aldini, and the Sancturay of Beata Vergine di San Luca, located on Colle della Guardia (270 m above sea level). For Bologna inhabitants, the Sanctuary is the dearest and most revered place, as well as a comforting visible “landmark” when approaching the city. It can be easily reached either on foot walking along the longest arcade of the city (about 4 km) or by shuttle bus.
