bologna data

by genebeans

I have read that the Baglioni Hotel is the best hotel in Bologna. If that is the case is it convenient to everything. How long a drive from Malpensa to Bologna? Or should I fly to Bologna and just use taxi,s and walk?? Thanks-Gene

RE: bologna data

by mccalpin

www.viamichelin.com reports that this trip is something like 270 kilometers and will take 3 hours. I made the same drive a few years ago, probably in segments. You will come from Malpensa to the "tangenziale" (the loop around Milan) (30-40 kilometers?), take the tangenziale from the northwest corner of Milano to the southeast, then take the A1 (Via Emilia) all the way to Bologna. I found that there was definitely stop and go traffic on the tangenziale (will vary a lot based on time of day), but that the autostrada to Bologna was quite fast.

Once you are inside Bologna, you will have no use for a car, as you already suspect. As in most places in Italy, having the car will benefit you if you are going to go to places outside the major urban areas. In this case of this trip, you pass through or by Piacenza, Cremona, Parma, Modena, and so on. In addition, places like Ravenna are not a long drive from Bologna.

So the answer is "it depends"...as you already knew ;-)

Sorry, I don't know anything about the hotel...we stayed up at the Jolly De La Gare near the main train station...

Travel Tips for Bologna

Shopping Paradise

by croisbeauty

The town of Bologna is shopping paradise, for those who can spend a lot and those who take care of expensis. Check the shops in Via dell'Indipendenza, Via S. Stefano, Corte Isolani, Corso Cavour, but especially in Centro Grosso where the prices are very competitive. There exist many shops of a kind inside the city center. Unfortunatelly, the offer is limited, as for camera as for memory cards.

Come to Bologna on Train

by Pakistaniguy

I came to Bologna on train but now there are a few airlines which are also operating to and from Bologna. Italian trains are getting better and better i guess. The train station is 30 mins from Center of the city Duomo.

Top reastaurant

by alemir82 about Trattoria Gianni

This is one top restaurants in Bologna serving a range of local dishes. It is very popular with locals and tourists and the prices are reasonable. The traditional bolliti, which is a variety of meats boiled in the Emilian way, is highly recommended.

Cattedrale di San Pietro

by Willettsworld

Not many people know that San Pietro is the cathedral of the city of Bologna instead of the church of Saint Petronius. The building dates back to the 10th century when it was built in 910, but it was rebuilt after a fire in 1141. Between the 12th and the 13th centuries, the majestic bell tower was erected and a highly decorated marble prothyrum was added on the side, with a central rose window. The cathedral was appointed as the "Metropolitan" by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Inside, there are important works: the Annunciation, by Lodovico Carracci, in the high altar, the frescoes on the vault of the presbytery and the apse, a wooden Crucifixion of the 12th century and the Mourned Dead Christ, a group of terracotta sculptures by Alfonso Lombardi, dating back to the 16th century.

Open: 7am-12:30pm, 4pm-6pm everyday

Palazzo del Re Enzo

by Tijavi

Adjacent to Palazzo del Podesta on Piazza del Nettuno is Palazzo del Re Enzo, another medieval palace built in the 13th century. It is named after King Enzo, the illegitimate son of the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II (he wasn't holy after all!). Papal forces held King Enzo in this palace between 1249-1272. Closed to the public, the only option available to tourists it to take pictures of the palace from the outside, which makes for a fitting background to the Fontana di Nettuno.
