Italy’s such a wonderful country – amazing food, gorgeous architecture and plenty of culture make it a perfect destination for a short break! If you’ve been craving a bit of the dolce vita, then be sure to check out this great Bologna city break I’ve put together!
Bologna City Break
I spotted a gorgeous 4* hotel on Trivago which is right in the heart of Bologna, and I knew would make the perfect place to stay for a short break away. Bologna is famed for its medieval city centre, and since it’s the birthplace of bolognese, you’ll be guaranteed to have some amazing Italian feasts along the way!
As well as your return Skyscanner flights from Dublin, you’ve got 2 nights at the I Portici Hotel. It’s definitely a grand number, and the original architecture has been combined with modern designs to really give it that special touch. The hotel’s restaurant has even been awarded a Michelin star!
You’re just a few hundred metres from the Piazza Maggiore, which serves as the heart of Bologna’s Old Town. There you’ll find some stunning buildings such as the San Petronio Basilica and Palazzo d’Accursio. Piazza Stefano is another great place to watch the world go by as well. If you want to get stuck into local life, then be sure to browse the markets for some amazing street food! Those who don’t mind a bit of a work out can head up to the top of one of the medieval towers, or hike up to San Luca Basilica.
This is definitely one city you shouldn’t miss out on if you’re a lover of all things Italian! Just click the links below to book your hotel and flights separately if you’re interested in the deal. :)
