Tips for your stay in Bologna
Flights to Bologna: must-sees!After a pleasant flight to Bologna with TUI fly, you will soon discover why this North Italian city has no fewer than four nicknames. The many historical sights take you back in time. With specialities like stuffed tortellini and mortadella, Bologna is also a great location for a culinary city break in Italy.
The city of towers and the red oneThe leaning Garisenda and Asinelli towers are the main symbols of Bologna. They are the two tallest standing medieval towers of the city which once boasted 180 towers. Climbing the 97-metre-tall Asinelli tower is an absolute must! It requires some physical exertion, but after 498 steps you will be rewarded with a splendid panoramic view of the red-roofed houses. Now you will understand why the city is nicknamed ‘la rossa’ (the red one).
Magical squaresBologna boasts several squares. Piazza Maggiore is located at the heart of the city and is flanked by beautiful medieval buildings. Enjoy a glass of chianti at an outdoor café. Soak up the ever-changing atmosphere and feast your eyes on the Palazzo del Podestà, the Palazzo d’Accursio and the Basilica of San Petronio. Another square you must see is Piazza Nettuno featuring the large fountain of Neptune, which is romantically illuminated at night.

In the Quadrilatero quarter, you can discover all the delicacies the city has to offer. Stroll along Via Pescherie Vecchie and Vicolo Ranocchi past shops with fresh fish, beautiful cuts of meat, processed meat products, fresh pasta, wines and other regional products. Boasting the best osterias in town, you have come to the right place to enjoy these delicacies. Stuffed (hand-made!) tortellini, mortadella, crescentine (fried pastries) served with a glass of wine… La dolce vita during a holiday in Bologna!
La Dotta – the learned oneBesides being called the red one, the fat one and the city of towers, Bologna is also nicknamed La Dotta, or the learned one.
