BOLOGNA: 5 THINGS TO DO IN ONE DAY

leo

Bologna is famed for its propensity for the good living! This is our quick guide for the places to absolutely visit if you only have one day to spend in this beautiful city.

A Special Hotel

Il Convento Dei Fiori di Seta, known also as Silk Flower Nunnery, is a wonderful small hotel that offers more attention from staff and wonderful surroundings. It’s placed perfectly for exploring the city in the various directions, even though it isn't the most central hotel.

A Quick Lunch Time

If you’re hungry and you want to enjoy a traditional meal, All'Osteria Bottega is perfect - if you can get a table! Its kitchen also allows for a lighter lunch, if your intention is to walk around in the afternoon.

For Shopping Lovers

If you’re planning to cast a glance at typical shops, we suggest the Market streets (Via Clavature and Via Peschiere Vecchie) where you will also find the shops of Paolo Atti & Figli to stock up on all those delicious tortellini!

Bolognese Taste and Class

For dinner, we recommend Cantina Bentivoglio: with its excellent food, that includes the authentic Bolognese sauce, and the classy jazz music, this restaurant is an absolute must for finishing a wonderful day in Bologna.

History and Culture

We suggest following the Genus Bononiae map to visit their historic buildings: they offer free entrance and showcase some of Bologna's most precious architecture and art. Here’s the official website.
