Bologna enjoys a privileged geographical position and is a natural crossroads for Italy and Europe. It is easy to reach by any means of transportation: plane, train and automobile. In the historical city centre you can easily get around on foot, everything is centrally located and the efficient public transportation system allows you to quickly reach the entire city, near and far.

Bologna is rich in different types of venues that are both exclusive and strongly integrated in the city fabric. A long experience in the MICE market ensures ease and reliability for organising any kind of event.

Home to the oldest university in Europe, Bologna is a city rich in art and culture. The medieval city centre, with 40 km of porticoes, is one of the best preserved in the world and more than 50 museums guard the city’s historical and artistic heritage. Walking through the old town is an emotional journey full of surprises.

Bologna boasts a unique culinary tradition, but its culinary excellence would only be great food if they were not served with that pride, passion and sincere hospitality which are typical of the city and its inhabitants. A contagious passion that makes everyone who comes here feel at home.
