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.

JUST PERFECT, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5 of 5
We had the pleasure of being guests in this fabulous apartment in September. The apartment is ideally located within a 10 stroll of the city centre in one direction and the train station in the other, which makes it ideal starting point to either spend the day in Bologna or visit one of the nearby towns such as Ferrara, Parma, Florence or Ravenna to name a few. The apartment is wonderful and exactly as pictured. It is well appointed to a very high standard and really makes you feel like you are in a home away from home. The rooms are spacious, the furniture authentic, the bed extremely comfortable and the shower was the best we encountered on our month long visit to Italy! ( Thank you ) Marta and Roberto have thought of every detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible and there are numerous reference books and maps to assist to make your time in Bologna fabulous. If you wish to to cook there are supermarkets close by and there is also a local market "Mercato delle Erbe" which also has some areas transformed into a trendy food court which opens until late in the evening. There is a small balcony off the kitchen and we enjoyed sitting there having an aperitif in the evening before we headed out for the night. It was lovely. We absolutely loved the apartment and our stay in Bologna. Marta and Roberto are fantastic hosts and were so helpful, hospitable and kind. We can't wait to return and stay here again. Mille Grazie Marta and Roberto.
