Bologna?Maranello?Modena?

by lakeslady

Taking my ten year old grandson on a "special trip" He wants to go to the Ferrari Museum. Since I want him to experience more of Italy than a car museum I have booked a trip that starts in Rome and ends in Venice. We will take the train to one of the above citiss. Which area has the most activities for an active boy? I plan on staying in this area for 3 days then take the train back to Venice to catch a flight back home. Hotel suggestions? Any other car museums nearby? I will not be renting a car--will use the train to get around so hotels should be close to train stations.

Hotel suggestion near airport in Venice?

I have spent lots of time in Italy but mainly in Rome so I could use all the help I can get to make this trip special.

Re: Bologna?Maranello?Modena?

by BlueLlama

Don't know Maranello or Modena, but I have been to Bologna a few times. Things that stand out in my mind for kids are:

Torre degli Asinelli - medieval tower to climb
Museo di Anatomia Umana - waxworks of the human body and lots of strange and gruesome things in glass cases
Nutelleria - cafe selling various sweet things stuffed with Nutella. I have a tip on this one :)

The main piazza often has colourful things going on. Bologna is a vibrant city and youthful. There's also an astronomy museum. I know some children that age are interested in the subject, but I haven't been so I don't know how suitable it would be for a 10-year-old.

Tre Vecchi is a good hotel in Bologna close to the station, but then all of Bologna's centre is relatively close. The city is compact.

The only other car-related sights I can think of are in Turin, which would be out of your way...

Travel Tips for Bologna

Piazza Galvani

by croisbeauty

Piazza Galvani is beautiful city square situated right behind the Basilica of San Petronio. In medieval times it was called Pavaglione, which comes from a dialect word "pavaglio", with which people would refer to the lucrative cocoon market. The statue to Luigi Galvani, first man to conduct studies on electicity, stands in the central position of the square.

Shopping in Galleria Cavour

by Azhut about Gucci, Prada, Armani etc.

The history of Galleria Cavour Building work began on Galleria Cavour after the Second World War, in 1948, and the first shops were completed around 1960. The idea was to connect Piazza Cavour with the Pavaglione loggia with a covered walkway, i.e. "Galleria Cavour". Since the very beginning, the city's best stores have been located there. Now you can find brands such as Bulgari, Cartier, Céline, Christofle, Emporio Armani, Escada, Fendi, Gai Mattiolo, Gianni Versace, Gucci, La Perla, Louis Vuitton, Malo, Sutor Mantellassi, Tod's and Trussardi. It has been internationally recognised as one of the most important shopping streets in the world. Panelled with fine marble and red granite, it successfully combines the idea of the American shopping mall with European elegance.

Simply Fantastic

by Polly74 about Trattoria Monte Donato

We discovered this restaurant by chance reading its name on a tourist guide. It's on top of Monte Donato hill and quite far from the city centre. But what we really appreciate was that only locals were eating there and no tourist at all...in my opinion those are the best restaurants! Tigelle are a must to try. It's a hot bread served with prosciutto crudo, cheese and pickles.

rustic setting, solid food

by marktynernyc about Dei Picari

A rustic tavern - about a 10E taxi ride from the Piazza Maggiore. When tasting his mortadella I finally understood that American baloney is a very poor imitation of mortadella. The filling for his homemade tortellini in brodo - made me pause. The lamb was tender and well prepared. I recommend this place highly.

The centre of action

by mikey_e

Piazza Maggiore is just that - the Large Square, the centre of action. This place is frequently referred to simply as La Piazza by the bolognesi, and it is hard to describe it as anything else than a large open urban space. The centre is too large and the buildings that surround it too far apart for the Piazza to be crowded by café tables, buskers and hawkers, which makes its a great place to simply take picture of the remarkable palazzi that surround it. To the south is San Petronio, to the north Palazzo della Podestà, to the east the Museo Civico Archeologico and to the West the Palazzo Comunale. The four buildings are not quite in the same style and represent different periods in the history of Bologna and architectural trends, which gives the visitor a great sense of the changes experienced in this city. Palazzo Nettuno is more likely the place to find displays or fairs - Palazzo Maggiore just seems too large to be anything other than a meeting place for individuals and private groups heading to one of the many cafés, restaurants and bars that line its edges.
