Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Bologna, Italy your home away from home

Bologna is the oldest and most prestigious university town in Italy. Famous for its enviable lifestyle and for having the finest cuisine in the whole of Italy, (which is a huge claim), Bologna holidays offer a magnificent opportunity to indulge in the finer things in life, and one not to be passed up! There is a great range of accommodation in Bologna city centre to choose from, placing you right at the heart of the action, allowing visitors to really throw themselves into the laid-back, high class lifestyles of one of Italy’s most important historic cities.

What to see in Bologna, Italy

The streets of Bologna are a wonderful place to walk, and although the bulky architecture is not the most beautiful in Italy, there is a real charm to the city centre. When thinking of what to see in Bologna, the twin squares in the centre of town are the perfect place to start. Piazza del Nettuno and Piazza Maggiore are the real heart of the city, surrounded by excellent shopping streets and atmospheric pavement cafes where, locals, students and visitors all congregate throughout the day. The Neptune Fountain which stands in the centre is one of the cities must important symbols, and must be included on any guide of what to see in Bologna. The collection of black and white photographs adorning the walls of the Piazza del Nettuno are a stark reminder of the price paid by Bologna during World War II.

From its position between the beaches of the Adriatic Coast and the peaks of the Apennine Mountains, holidays to Bologna are also a nature lovers dream. Walking along the coastal paths and making the short journey from Bologna accommodation to the powder soft sands of the Emilia Romagna coastline are well worth the time, as the coastline is almost perfect, with endless miles of pristine beaches to choose from. Walking, riding and mountain biking in the Apennines also provides wonderful day trips from self catering Bologna villas, apartments and holiday houses.

Gastronomy is Bologna’s jewel in the crown. Food is taken very seriously, and simply shopping for ingredients from your self catering Bologna accommodation is a real spectacle. Food shops are meticulously presented and the treasures found within are of a quality unheard of in most countries. The food is quite exceptional, especially the delicacies of Parmesan cheese and Parma ham. There are some excellent restaurants and cafes to frequent, and if you take self catering Bologna accommodation, cookery courses and local markets are a perfect day’s entertainment.

Weather in Bologna, Italy

Although Bologna doesn’t suffer from tourist overcrowding at any time of year like many of Italy’s famous cities, the summer months are still the most popular. Average monthly temperatures in July and August are fantastically hot, making the near-by beaches almost irresistible as average monthly temperatures can climb to over 30˚C. Spring and autumn are some of the best times to visit Bologna accommodation, as some of the sting is taken out of the heat of the day, yet it remains marvellously warm.

Very spacious and well equipped in great area

5 of 5
The apartment is very spacious, very well equipped and very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on the large balcony. Great position that is close to shops and restaurants but quite. The best food market is only 100M's away. But best of all are the two great hosts. Guisy, is very charming, (Warning she talks a lot :-) ), then there is Saint Marco (he listens to Guisy talk :-) ). Nothing was too much trouble for Guisy and Marco, they even arranged all our evening meals in great local restaurant.
