The vibrant capital of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna is one of the world's oldest university towns. Visitors staying at our Bologna hotel can experience a legacy of learning dating back to 1088, from the Specola observatory to the Archiginnasio Teatro Anatomico, where 17th century medical students watched live dissections.
Music is everywhere in Bologna, from classical performances at the Teatro Comunale, to the summertime disco in Parc Cavaioni. The influence of Bologna’s young people brings energy and excitement to the student quarter, with quirky bookshops, trendy nightclubs, live bands playing in cafés, and – in Italy of all places! – superior vegetarian restaurants.
Choosing a hotel in Bologna places you in the gastronomic capital of a country famed for its love of food. Restaurant menus overflow with fresh pasta and rich sauces, and the stalls in the Via Clavature market are laden with truffles, local cheeses and delectable cured meats.
With miles of high-arched porticoes and elegant religious architecture dating back to the 5th century, the medieval streets swim with history. But our Bologna hotel also puts you steps away from the modernity of the BolognaFiere exhibition centre and high-speed trains to the rest of Italy from Stazione Centrale.
