Bologna in detail


Accommodation in Bologna is geared to the business market, with a glut of midrange to top-end hotels in the convention zone to the north of the city. If possible, avoid the busy spring and autumn trade-fair seasons when hotels get heavily booked, advance reservations are essential, and standard prices can literally double or triple. There is a city tax levied on top of room rates that runs between €1.50 and €5 per person per night depending on the rack rate.
