What is the best and cheapest way for transport from Forli Airport to Lido degli Estensi (camping Mare Pineta)? Thank You
My husband and I are ending our European trip this Fall in (one of our favorite places) Florence, Italy. We've tentatively decided to take the train to Bologna (a place we've never visited) and stay for 3 days. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best and safest area to stay? What would be the sites not to miss, and which ones should we skip? Travel guides list the usual places - but we are also looking for surprises as well.
I'd also be interested to know if Bologna is worth the 3 days? Thank you in advance for your response.
My wife and I are planning a trip to Italy in early September. I prefer to drive rather that travel by train or bus. I thought that Bologna would be a good base to stay for 8 days and take driving trips. Any thoughts about the plan?
Hi. I am thinking of going to Verona by train. Is it cheaper to buy the ticket online now rather than buying it the same day which will be May 21st?
What is the best method of transfer from airport to rail station
Hi I'm looking for a gym in central Bologna that you can pay to use for one day as a non-member. Needs to have treadmills and dumbbells. Cheers.
Hi, I have looked at few booking sites already, but before I make final decision I would like to ask here: where do you recommend to stay for two nights during Fiera (7th- 11th November) that is not more than 50 kilometer from Bologna and affordable (no more than 200 euro for 2 nights for 4 people if that's realistic?? we'll go by car). Is there any agriturismo in that price range? I know it may be little late but still, the decision was just passed on recently and asking here perhaps won't hurt :) Thanks! v.
Hi there! Which cities/places would you recommend me to visit on the fringe Bologna-Ancona? And which ones would you recommend me to skip? Think of them first, and give me your opinion about the following list later: - Bologna - Faenza - Forli - Cesena - Rimini - Riccione - Pesaro - Fano - Senigallia - Ancona Thanks/grazie!
I am planning train travel bologna to venice for roundtrip for a day. I was planning to go earlier on the travel day e.g 06:00 am and return will be latest hours e.g 11:00 pm 1. Could I buy tickets on the travel day at the train staion? I think I can buy them by machine with cash or cards?Is it difficult to find ticket and seat buying at the station or should buy them online but i searched and no available seat on the time when i want to go, online searching. 2.Could my hotel's concierge buy for me if i request? And how about weather between 18-23 September according to weather history? Thanks and have a good trips to all..
We will be staying in Bologna and want to take a guided day trip to Venice. We don't normally use guided trips, but we want to make best use of our short time there and get transportation help. Any suggestions?
I will be arriving in Bologna, Sept 4. I am travelling alone, so I am hoping to make new friends.
Hello :-) I'll arrive in Bologna late in the evening (11 p.m.) and would like to stay very close to the airport to pick up my car (at airport's Europcar station) next morning. On google maps I saw Hotel Emi and Brianza just off the eastern section of the runway. And then there seems to be one (Sheraton? Aurora?) just 100 m west of the parking facilities. Anyone know one of these? Or has other suggestions? Thanks in advance Ingrid

Hi to all, Can i have some info regarding day trips from Bologna. i prefer bus travelling but info about train is welcome. Thank you in advance Happy new year to all
Next Monday 12th December, together with my GF and my Mum & Dad, I will be traveling from Bologna Stazione Centrale (Central Station)to Firenze Santa Maria Novella Station. Unfortunately, I just heard that on the same day, the major Trade Unions in Italy (CGIL,etc) will be on strike for some hours because of the austerity measures which are proposed by the newly formed Government in Italy. And I assume the Transport Sector will be badly hit. I was so looking forward to my first time visit in Northern Italy but now I feel really down about this strike-thing. I have a booking for 2 rooms in a Hotel in Florence but when I checked my booking policy, I was informed that I lose 50% of the Total Price if I cancel this hotel reservation. So no good news so far regarding my holiday in Italy. I was now making some research on the internet about the problem and on the site www.trenitalia.com I found some information in case of a strike. According to law, on the Train Line Bologna-Firenze, Train Numbers 6581 and 11521 are required by law to operate @ 6.16am and 6.45am respectively, even during a strike. The funny thing though is that on the same site, after 2 years of service, both Trains are scheduled to operate till the 10th December 2011! And what about the 12th December? Can someone please lead me at this stage because I'm really confused? I appreciate any help you can give me; because believe me I'm really lost. Thanks. Kevin
Hi All, Visiting Bologna soonI would like to know where you can have a nice Aperitivo with stuzzicchini?
Hi! I might be going to Bologna for a job, but know v little/nothing about the city. How does it compare to other Northern Italian cities? Pretty? Busy? Industrial? People are used to foreigners or not?? Thanks!
Hi, I will visit Bologna on Oct 2. I have booked Hotel Donatello in Via dell'Indipendenza. I am wondering is it a safe area? If I come back in evening, shall I be concerned walking alone on the street? I am a solo traveller. Basically I enjoy this way, but gotta admit sometimes dining alone is a bit painful.. However, I would not want to miss the chance to try the authentic local food. Could you recommend a good place to dine, with average price, in the center or not far from my hotel? And maybe a nice bar where I can get a drink later on? I have 3 full days in Bologna. After reading some tips on VT, I am thinking to make a day trip to Ferrara. Any suggestion about it? Thanks!
Me and my husband will only be in Bologna for one night - this Sept 15 - staying at Albergo delle Drapperie on Via Drapperie. We're leaving in the morning the next day, so we will only have time for one dinner there, and we want it to be good. We don't want to waste time wandering around looking for something. We don't need anything extravagant, but want something delicious and genuine. Hoping some of you will have some great suggestions! Grazie.
My wife and I will be traveling to Munich from Florence. We will be stopping at the Bologna train station to change trains. We only have 10minutes to exit the first train then board the second train. I was wondering is this enough time to do so? If anyone has any information or suggestions... That would be great. Thanks,
We recently spent 6 wonderful days in Bologna but have one small regret about our stay there. We saw some superb street musicians and didn't buy their CD! I have a photo of them at picasaweb.google.com/mrigeoy the first in the album. If anyone knows who they are could they please reply or leave a comment on the photo. We would love to have some of their music to remind us of our holiday. Thanks.
Hello. I'll be arriving in Bologna area next week on Sunday (28/8/11). I will arrive from Padova by car, and I will have abit more than 24 hours to spend in the area of Bologna. We will leave Padova in the morning so I expect to get there by morning / early noon too, and I will leave Bologna the next day (29.8.11, Monday) arround 2:00pm / 3:00pm or maximum 4:00pm. We will stay a night in Bologna, and I wanted to know what is recomended for me to do. Should I spend the whole day / night in Bologna? if so, where should I go? or, should I go somewhere nearby (we have a car) during the day, and spend only the night + the next day in Bologna, and then too, what should I do / where to visit? From what I've seen so far, Bologna has mainly historical attraction. Not that it's not interesting at all, but it's not the main thing we are looking for. Sure we will tour the city for some time, the question is, for us, is it recommended to spend a whole day, or just a couple of hours during the day? or visiting the streets in the evening, is preferable? We are not interested in museums, and such. Seeing beautiful sights and absorving the culture / atmosphere is thing we want to do but I think that a few hours are enough, and what then? any nice sightseeing nearby? I also heared that Ferrari / Lambo' factories are nearby, are they worth a visit? Thanks for any tip!
i need an advice.my flight stops at bologna but i need to get to milan?is it possible to take a direct transport from bologna airport to milan san siro
Does anyone know of any ballroom dancing venues/ dance halls in Bologna, or restaurants with dinner dance or tea dances? Many thanks!
I would appreciate it if anyone could advise me on who I can contact to provide a reasonably priced visit for my wife and I to a winery to include a tasting with light lunch or meat sand cheese buffet in the Bologna area. I'm looking to pay up to about 70 euros per person approx. for the visit including transport. Any help would be appreciated as would any enterprising local VT member who would be prepared to assist. Many Thanks, DomyDom
Do they have paid toilets in Bologna and Parma? Someone told me that it's regulated by law that you can enter free of charge in restaurants and shops that have toilets? Is that true?
- How much does it cost Bologna-->Venice by train (how long does it last) - Is it worth it if you have only 7 hours in Bologna (first time in Bologna and want to see the city of Bologna also?) - What about Venice-->Parma to return? (by train also) (my hotel is in Parma) Thank You in advance!
How many bus stops etc Where can I find this travel guide (with Red Buses). How long does it last?
This is my first time to Bologna. I will go from airport to Centro di Bologna by bus. Then I have to take the train to Parma. Anyone can help with these questions? - I will arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon. Where do you recommend going, including even commercial centers. - Is there any place where you can leave the luggage at Centro di Bologna, and if yes, how much does it cost. - How can you take the train from Bologna-->Parma and are there any special procedures. - Do the people speak english, cause I understand italian but can't speak it very well. - Anything important you recommend? Thank You VERY MUCH in advance!!!!!
