Bologna Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

As famous for its terracotta roofs as it is for its sophisticated spirit and gastronomic delights, Bologna is one of the nicest cities in Italy. Although slightly overshadowed by the country’s many beach destinations, it remains a great city-break that’s easy to reach either by plane or by car from anywhere else in northern Italy. These are three of its most interesting landmarks:

  • Museums. Home of the oldest university in the Western world, Bologna has always been known as a citadel of learning and science; a fact that’s exemplified by the city’s various high-quality museums. Highlights include the splendid Archaeological Museum with artifacts from the Etruscan and Roman cultures who once inhabited the present-day Bologna and the International Museum and Library of Music.
  • San Petronio Basilica. The symbol of Bologna, San Petronio is one of the most notable churches in Italy. First built in the 14th century and technically still unfinished, it is nonetheless a very fine example of Gothic architecture. The interior of the church features many sculptures by the Italian artist Jacopo della Quercia.
  • Towers of Bologna. Another dominant feature of the city’s skyline, seeing Bologna’s many towers is another great way to learn about its long and varied past. Many of the original towers have not survived until the present day, but more than 20 remain, including the central Due Torri or Two Towers that turned 900 years old in 2019.

Had an awesome time driving from Bologna to Rome. Loved my time in Montepulciano .... Awesome view from the top of the mountain, great wine and food! My suggestion for wine tasting? Over the course of a couple days order 2 or three different glasses at each meal .... rather than pay for a tiny splash. Simply stress to the staff that you want to taste only local wines.

The trip Bologna, Firenze and Milano has scenic vues, remarkable cities, excellent culinary experience, relaxing but also (Milano) is a cosmopolitan modern destination! Reserve your parking spots (via internet) BEFORE your arrival, to avoid unpleasant surprises (as violation tickets for entering in the controlled traffic zone) as the parking communicates your registration plates to Police and you are classed as authorized vehicle without any other effort!
