If you have only one weekend to sightsee Bologna, Starhotels Excelsior has designed a special tour for you. Here are the five must-sees you cannot absolutely miss.

Botanical Garden (Via Irnerio, 42): One of Italy’s and the world’s oldest botanical gardens. It contains many local and exotic plants and reconstructions of natural habitats.

Underground Tour: Deep in Bologna’s belly is an unknown and undiscovered world, rich in history dating back to the Middle Ages. For info about guided tours: segreteria@amicidelleacque.org.

Piazza Santo Stefano: Lined with historic buildings, the square houses the Complex of the Seven Churches. You should stop here at sunset, the “blue hour”, when the whole scenery slowly takes on a bluish tinge.

Dining at an Osteria: we recommend a gourmet tour of the “home of tortellini”. Click here for a selection of Bologna’s best osterias.

Cinema in Piazza Maggiore: film-showing en plein-air, “beneath the movie stars” as the slogan of this popular event curated by Bologna’s Film Archives goes.
