Bologna- Do’s and Don’ts
Bologna, Italy Don’ts
Don’t miss lunch!
Don’t Walk around with a huge map
Large maps are a huge sign for tourist, try to blends and act as if you’ve been there before.
Don’t take to many taxis
One they’re expensive and two you’ll never get the local experience. All the locals walk!
Don’t miss the tortellini!
When I checked out of my hotel, before being asked: “how was your stay?” I was asked ” Did you have tortellini?” my only regret 🙁
Forget to pack liquids in a Ziploc bag
Unless you want to risk staining your luggage and your clothes.
Bologna, Italy Do’s
I couldn’t wait to finally have real lasagna and Bologna didn’t disappoint. I actually can’t wait to return to have another serving.The pasta options are endless but don’t miss one of their classics
Do, contact your hotel if you have an early or late arrival
Hotels will accommodate you if they can. Don’t be afraid to tweet a hotel ( it works) Luckily, I emailed the hotel a few days in advance, one of the managers left a note that I had requested an early arrival.
Do learn basic Italian
Many people greeted me in Italian from the time I landed, I felt terrible saying”hello”. It’s important to respect other cultures, little things like learning greets is the 1st step.
Take the 3-euro bus from the airport
Even though Bologna is the largest city in the Emilia-Romagna area of northern Italy. It’s still compact. All of the hotels are located in the city center making it easy to explore a cheap commute from the airport, even closer plan train.
