Welcome is Bologna

Promenade among trails and villas

Nestled between pristine, rolling hills and vast plains corrugated by cultivation and canals, lies the city of Bologna: a hidden gem in the heart of 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 center. That’s where the adventure begins.
