Move in Bologna


The urban set of Bologna is the result of centuries of layered civilizations that moved by walk, so the city is very enjoable in this sense. Almost all the streets of the city center have porticoed sidewalks and even in a rainy day you could browse the city without using your umbrella.

The public transports too cover the whole area of the city center and you can download here the map of the busses.
