Bologna in August?

by the_rage

I'm thinking of going to Bologna on 5th Aug for a few days but I've been reading that it's like a ghost town. Will all bars/shops/restaurants be closed?

August is vacation month for the Italians and most businesses will be closed for the entire month.

It is my experience that there is no particular decrease in bars, restaurants or shops available during August.

In previous years I have been to Tuscany, Lake Como, Lake Garda, Venice, Verona and Sorrento during August......not Bologna, but be assured Italy is not anything like a ghost town in August.

Don't concern yourself about Bologna. It depends heavily on the tourist trade and everything will be open. It is true that Italians generally take their summer holidays at this time, but not where there is a dependency on tourism.
Coincidentally, we will be in Bologna for two nights from 31st July.

Travel Tips for Bologna

My worst football related moment in Bologna

by Calcio

Haven’t had any bad moments in Bologna, except for all my troubles I have every time, trying to find the right entrance. There are no logical thoughts at all for that stadium…
Or maybe it is me who can’t see the logic…
What could have been my worst moment was the last time I was in Bologna, September 2004. When the game against Roma started the sky suddently became very dark, and it looked like the whole heaven would start raining down at us. People ran in panic to buy some of the last rain-coats that some street vendors had for sale inside the stadium. I was one of the lucky ones, but when I finally had got it on I realized that the clouds would pass right beside the stadium… A very small rain, for 3-4 minutes, was all that my coat had to take, thankfully…

Museo di Anatomia Umana. It is...

by eurotravels

Museo di Anatomia Umana.
It is free to enter this museum, which is open until 12 midday Monday - Saturdays. The wax figures were used for medical demonstrations. They are startlingly realistic and make this probably the most unusual museum I've ever seen. An artist called Mazzolini created this Self Portrait.
Via Irnerio 48.

Buses were great, get the multi day pass. We took the bus to the train station and the trains with one exception ran on time and were very inexpensive. When you get to the small daytrip towns by train, just walk into town as it is NEVER very far to the main square. This is a picture of a mural in Faenza, the ceramic heart of Italy.

Bologna's (un)official university pub

by Tijavi about La Scuderia

While at Piazza Verdi, drop by La Scuderia, Bologna's unofficial student pub, for a drink. Located in what used to be the family stables of the Bentivoglios, La Scuderia is big on ambiance: soaring columns, magnificent vaults, artsy photos, and yes, intellectuals (or at least, wannabes), discussing almost everything under the sun from Einstein's relativity theories to the latest university gossip.

Bologna’s Charming Peculiarity

by von.otter

“We went to Bologna, then, first, and found the few days we spent there well bestowed. The peculiarity of its domestic architecture is its porticos. It looks as if the Bolognese had made a vow, never to walk in the sun or rain; for the front of the ground-floor of every building is a portico; and thus every street is an avenue of noble columns, of all the architectural orders, which support the indispensable, all-ramifying portico.”
— from “Letters, Poems and Selected Prose” 1888 by David Gray (1838-1861, Scottish poet)

CHARMING PECULIARITY Bologna has a total of 23.5 miles of porticoed space running through its historic center. Porticoes are not exclusive to Bologna, but the city is especially known for them. Developed during the 1200s, by 1288 the city fathers made it obligatory for anyone who constructed a building in the city to include a portico as part of the new structure. In addition, the porticoes had to be a minimum height of nine feet to allow those on horseback to pass beneath them!

The elaborately decorated ceilings (see photo #3) of some porticoes date from the 19th century.
