Cheap flights to Bologna

Bologna is Italy’s secret gem. It might not be as visited as the likes of Rome, Venice or Florence, but this medieval city is every bit as enticing, and with a reputation for having the best food in Italy, is well worth a visit.

A Roman street plan complete with perfectly preserved red brick medieval buildings and more than 35 kilometres of arcades make this city one of the most atmospheric in Europe. And when you’re not gawping at the Old Town you’ll be straining your neck to get a glimpse of the 13th century tower blocks that still stand.
