The new British Airways’ service gives holidaymakers even more travel options to Italy, but where should you visit in Bologna?

Piazza Maggiore

Piazza Maggiore

It’s hard to miss the Piazza Maggiore – it’s one of the largest public squares in Bologna. Located in the heart of the old part of Bologna, it’s a must-see on a trip to the city.

Surrounded by Renaissance-style architecture, the Piazza Maggiore has coffee shops, bars and some great daily street entertainment.



Situated just outside Bologna, the medieval town of Dozza is perfect for a day trip out of the city. Surrounded by rolling hills and luscious green countryside, Dozza is a sleepy town with a lot to offer.

The buildings in Dozza are painted in vibrant colours, and the small cobbled streets make it unique in the region.

Palazzo D’Accursio

Palazzo D’Accursio

Bologna is a city full of history – just walking through the streets conjures up images of the Renaissance period. For even more history, the Palazzo D’Accursio is the place to go.

The historic town hall is located near the Piazza Maggiore, and has a large collection of paintings by famous Italian artists.
