Activities for Children in Bologna

by SantaBarbaraBoy

I have three boys 10 and younger. Any suggestions on activities for them besides the museums? I know there is a good park there, and also a cool looking anatomical museum they would be interested in seeing, but I'm looking for more local hanging out places for kids. For instance, some friends of ours went to Spain, and their kids played soccer until midnight with local kids near the central square...any of that sort go on in Bologna? Or any day schools/camps for kids to immerse with some of the local kids?

Re: Activities for Children in Bologna

Glad to see you are posting re activities for your boys! Assuming that you are still pursuing going there over the winter, there will not be much if any opportunity for outside activities such as soccer until midnight. If you go in June, then the schools will still be in and the children will all be occupied with that - Italian children start school at 08.00 - at least they do in Venice - and also go to school on Saturday mornings. When we were in Bologna I truly don't remember seeing many, if any, children in the Centro Historico where you plan to find accommodation. There is no room for playing on the streets. Perhaps if you find accommodation outside of the centre, then you may be lucky and find some kids for them to play with. If your children were older, say late teens, then they would have more chance of finding like-aged kids to hang around with, as Bologna is a university town with a very lively student population.
The Italians love children but they are very family oriented and I think you will find it difficult to find what you are looking for - the time of year (both of them), the weather, the location and the general make-up of society are not conducive. You'd have better luck going to a more resorty sort of place. However, I will have a good think and see if I can come up with anything.

Travel Tips for Bologna

Where to buy a matchticket

by Calcio

There is one big ticket-office outside the stadium, behind the Curva Costa, where you can buy tickets for all sectors of the stadium (except for the away-sector). You can also buy tickets in advance at
Normally the games aren’t sold out, so you should be able to find a ticket on matchdays.
The tickets in Bologna are quite expensive, and for a seat at the “tribuna”, on one of the long sides of the stadium, you’ll have to be prepared to pay 40 euro. Lot less in the curva of course.

Walk up into the hills

by reenby

Leave the city behind by following the longest uninterrupted arcade in the world up into the hills to the San Luca Monastery.

The arcade starts at Porta Saragozza and winds its way across roads and up to reach the monastery which looks over Bologna.

Its a pleasant walk, not too strenuous and the arcade provides shade on a hot or rainy day. At the top there is a pizza restaurant - be warned though, they only serve sandwiches during the day.

After a rest and exploring the monastery, turn round and walk back down - its easer on the way down.

Bologna Airport

by Mundus

Bologna's airport is located in the north of the city.

There is a frequent bus connection that passes through downtown and finishes at the train station (it really doesn't finish there because it's a loop).

There are connection serving Europe's main airports - Frankfurt, Paris, London, Lisbon, Barcelona, et cetera.

Bravo Franco Rossi

by von.otter about Ristorante Franco Rossi

This lovely restaurant takes its name from Franco Rossi, who along with his brother Lino, owns the place. They are masters of hospitality. The night we dined here friends of Franco were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and everyone in the place was treated to some of the cake. You also will find truly exceptional service from the Maitre’d Giuseppe and the waitress Simone!

The atmosphere of this restaurant, on a corner between Via Goito and Vicolo delle Donzelle. is cozy. It is a great way to spend an evening in this lovely city. The regional wine list is excellent. The sliced Parmigiano-Reggiano with Balsamic is outstanding. This is not silly tourist food.

The Two towers

by Aggeliki

The Two Towers are among the city's most recognisable landmarks. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the noble families of Bologna raised over 100 towers across the city. Of the 20 that survive today, the Asinelli and the Garisenda towers are Bologna's most famous and they situated at the end of Via Rizzoli.
