The city of Bologna lies nestled between pristine, rolling hills and vast plains corrugated by cultivations and canals: a hidden gem for tourists yet one of the most important hubs of road and rail communications in northern Italy.
Whether you explore it on foot or by bike or scooter, by plane or train… memories of the Bolognese landscape will continue to enchant you long after you’re gone.
Hidden treasures can already be found just beyond the city centre. That’s where the adventure begins.
Discover magical places, such as historical mansions, antique ducal palaces, and majestic Patrician Villas scattered along the broad horizon stretching to the north of the city. Here, time flows at a slow pace, preserving traditions and handing them on to the future generations.
Then leave the plains behind you and head up towards the nature trails that penetrate the bountiful nature of the Bolognese hillsides. Here, enchanted scenes unfold that reveal the incredible architecture of fairy-tale castles and timeless villages set in the wild beauty of nature.
Hike along the breathtaking nature trials, such as the Path of the Gods or the Wool and Silk Trail, and see why modern painters, like Giorgio Morandi, were so inspired by the sheer beauty here.
