Bologna Welcome is the tourist information service in the city.
According to the Protocol for Tourism Promotion signed by the Municipality of Bologna, the Chamber of Commerce and the Province of Bologna in December 2010, the “Bologna Welcome” project aims at a joint promotion of Bologna and its area through a co-management of the tourist information offices, located in strategic points to welcome tourists and visitors, and through the city tourism portal www.bolognawelcome.it .
Bologna Welcome promotes Bologna and its territory, by offering further and new opportunities to encourage and welcome national and international tourism.
The Municipality of Bologna and Bologna Congressi manage together the two Bologna Welcome offices, located in Piazza Maggiore and at the "G. Marconi" Airport
The Municipality is in charge of the institutional part, i.e. information and reception, whereas Bologna Congressi provides all the incoming services.
Tourists and citizens can apply to Bologna Welcome offices to get tourist information about Bologna and its area, from museums to events, and to pick up free tourist brochures.
Also they can profit from all the other services provided: hotel booking, train, plane and ferry ticketing, booking of tours, special packages, events pre-registration and ticketing, and selling of publications and merchandising.
We welcome leisure and business tourists and we also offer solutions tailor-made for local and international operators.
The web portal www.bolognawelcome.it represents a Bologna Welcome point on line, promoting Bologna as a destination through the information (events, tourist itineraries, shopping and leisure, wine & food, etc.) and hotel booking services.
