Coach Hire & Bus Rental For Every Occassion
The Italian city of Bologna could be described as a city of two halves. On one side you have a modern, hi-tech city with some of the finest restaurants, theatres and red-bricked terracotta-roofed architecture in Italy, while on the other there’s the oldest university in the world and its students, who gather in graffiti-covered piazzas to debate and have fun.
With just over 380,000 residents, it’s not a big city but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in its excellent cuisine, its architectural beauty, its roofed arcades, and its extensive and well-preserved town centre.

Close to all the main tourist attractions, Piazza Maggiore (the main city square) is a lovely place to grab a coffee before the hustle and bustle of the day begins.
After your coffee, head across the square to the Fontana del Nettuno, created by Flemish sculptor Giambologna, for a quick selfie, before making your way to Basilica di San Petronio, one of the biggest churches in the world.
The Abbazia di Santo Stefano is the most unique religious site in the city. A maze of interlocking churches, it’s a mixture of architectural styles from Ancient Roman elements to Romanesque, and is the perfect place to enjoy some peace and quiet away from the noise of Italian life.
If you fancy a bit of shopping, Via Dell’Indipendenza is the central shopping street and home to an extremely impressive selection of shops. It does get very busy, so you may want to get there as early as possible in the day. Just off the main street, you’ll find plenty of small restaurants selling authentic Bolognese cuisine if you get hungry.
When the going gets tough, you may want to take a break in Giardini Margerita. Located just outside the old city centre, it’s the most popular park in the city, and the Chalet café offers refreshments throughout the year.
Of course, with a reputation for high-class quality food giving it the title of the gastronomic centre of Italy, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the restaurants in Bologna. Try Trattoria Del Rosso right in the historic centre, Gamberini for the best pre-dinner Aperitivo in town or Da Leonida on Vicolo Alemagna for simply excellent food.
You’ll also find a shady retreat at San Michele in Bosco, where lies a beautiful church and equally stunning views from the top of the hill. While you can walk to the church, hiring a minibus from RentABus.com will get you there in double quick time.
Equally impressive is the glorious Santuario della Madonna di San Luca which is set in the hills of Bologna on top of the Colle della Guardia. While you may fancy the walk there beneath the 666 arches of the world’s longest portico, don’t hesitate to call us if you’d like to hire a minibus to get you back to your accommodation.
