Destination guide

There's more to Bologna than just the city

It's true that most visitors don't leave the confines of Bologna. It's not surprising when you begin to discover the long list of history attractions and menus that make you salivate uncontrollably (we're looking at you, Parmigiano Reggiano-covered tagliatelle al ragu). However, those who do venture outside the city to stay in countryside Metropolitan City of Bologna vacation rentals are treated to an astoundingly beautiful landscape of rolling vineyard-laden hills, steep valleys and rushing rivers that provide everything you need for outdoorsy adventures. If you want to induce some serious Instagram jealousy, be sure to bring your camera.

Things to do

A dizzying number of historical attractions in Bologna

It can be dizzying to know where to start when it comes to historical attractions near your Metropolitan City of Bologna vacation rental. A good starting point is pulling up a seat at one of the cafes in the Piazza Maggiore and lingering over an espresso. Afterwards, you could make the rewarding walk up through the longest portico in the world, passing 666 arcades on the way up to San Luca. History buffs should drop into Archiginnasio, part of the world's oldest university, or dive into the Museum of the History of Bologna housed in the Palazzo Pepoli Vecchio.


Truffle hunting with locals in Bologna

Most people might fly into Bologna for the culture and food, but beyond the city walls a whole host of adventures await. The rolling forested hills and Apennine Mountains are criss-crossed with footpaths and cycling trails. Alternatively, you can hop aboard kayaks, or harness up to climb the mountain's challenging cliff faces. If you're looking for a slower pace, the nearby vineyards and their tastings offer a little respite from the midday heat, or if you visit during truffle season, you could join one of the locals and head out into the woodlands to dig around for the prized Italian fungus.


Spring through fall is best for Bologna

The sizzling summer sees the most number of visitors descend on Bologna. While the weather can be glorious, particularly if you want a laidback vacation in the city, for outdoor adventures it can be a little oppressive. If you plan to score a Metropolitan City of Bologna vacation rental beyond the city, try visiting in spring or fall, when the temperature is a little more conducive to hiking and biking and the crowds have thinned out. There's also the bonus of a drop in rental prices in an effort to draw visitors in during the cooler months.

Natural features

The best of Bologna's flora and fauna

There's no shortage of scenic spots near your Metropolitan City of Bologna vacation rental, but for some of the most beautiful, try the Monte Sole Historical Park. This spectacular 6,300-acre spot makes up part of a small mountain chain next to the Reno River. The ecosystems that range from deciduous woodland of oaks to bushes provide habitats for an extraordinary number of flora and fauna. Wild boar might not be seen often, but they rustle around in the bushes, while magnificent roe deer bound through the forests and at night you may even hear the howl of wolves.
