Sample the cuisine and history of the ‘red city’

Looking for the Italian dolce vita? Book a flight to Bologna and experience the real flavour of Italy, where you can taste authentic spaghetti Bolognese. In the evening, explore the city's energetic nightlife and by day, stroll across the many picturesque squares. Climb the 498 steps to the top of the Asinelli Tower and you will understand why Bologna is also known as 'the red city'. The view over the many red rooftops is magical.

One long string of culture

Bologna is like a huge open-air museum! The historic centre features many attractions, such as the Palazzo Pepoli and Basilica de San Petronio, the city's largest church. A walk to the Basilica di San Luca is also a unique experience: approach the beautiful monastery via the longest covered walkway in the world, with 666 porticos or arches. Dozens of picturesque streets fan out from the lively Piazza Maggiore. No matter what the weather is like, the striking arched walkways protect you from the sun or the rain. And for world-class artwork visit the Pinacoteca Nazionale. Bologna is the ideal destination for a weekend holiday, or as the starting point for a longer vacation in Italy.

Bologna's culinary specialties

One of Bologna's nicknames is La Grassa. This name means 'the fat one’ and refers to the city's culinary reputation. Eating is an important pastime here. In addition to the world famous Bolognese spaghetti sauce, Bologna serves some of the most authentic Italian cuisine. The delicious tortelli (stuffed pasta) is still handmade here. Bologna is the ultimate destination for foodies.
