Verona to Bologna by Train

If you’re in Verona and are wondering where to take your next city adventure then might we suggest Bologna? It’s less than an hour away and also lets you take a speedy Trenitalia or Italo train, and who doesn’t love a ride on modern and comfy trains? Bologna, home of bolognese, which may be all the convincing you need, but there’s plenty to enjoy about this city, often considered the kitchen of Italy. First, why not work up an appetite at the Two Towers. These looming structures date back to the 1100s, and give a fantastic view, as well as a great workout, to those who climb to the top.

Reward yourself with some gelato in Piazza Maggiore, the expansive city square where you can rub shoulders with the locals as well as enjoy the impressive sight of Saint Petronius Church which, even unfinished, remains one of Italy’s most beautiful churches. Just a short walk away is one of the city icons, the Fountain of Neptune, so be sure to throw in a coin and hope the sea god gives you good luck, or just some good fish. Not that you’ll need luck for that, the city is filled with eateries that serve everything from delicious meats to fresh seafood and sweet treats to follow it all up. Indulge as only the Italians know how in Bologna, but make sure to fill up on our handy travel tips below too!
