    Archiginnasio is a hidden gem to visit in Bologna. It’s located near to piazza di Maggiore, approximately ten minutes walking distance. You can visit teatro anatomico and biblioteca comunale with just €6.00. It’s amazing how well maintain is a university who founded back 500 years ago.
    I strongly recommend a visit.

    We wandered in here by accident and it turned out to be one of our favorite spots in Bologna. There's a great cafe just outside the huge central atrium. And the ruins underneath are definitely worth a visit. There was a book reading going on and we enjoyed being part of the local culture.

    The library is divided in 2 parts. The main library with the old books that is now used for seminars and as a museum. The second part where students can study. The place is well maintained and looks very impressive.

    Be sure to find the right entrance as google maps shows the wrong location. I do not know the address, but it's next to the square on Via Zamboni where you turn right next to the library building walking from square Maggiore to the Via Zamboni

    I discovered this museum by chance while walking through the streets of Bologna. The size of this museum is not big, but the exhibits displayed in it are fantastic. In addition to a number of old, beautiful musical instruments, there are also manuscripts of, for example, Giuseppe Verdi, Ottorino Respighi and other greats of classical music.

    The entrance fee was €5.

    This review is for the welcome center’s walking tour, which I cannot recommend. Our guide was lovely, clearly very knowledgable, and did the best she could given the circumstances, but the group size was too large, the city much too crowded and noisy, and the microphone/headset system totally inadequate. There is too much ambient noise and the guide’s microphone crackled the whole time, making it impossible to hear what she was saying. We abandoned the headsets pretty quickly and just walked around with the group so we’d know which spots to revisit later on our own. We went on a Saturday, so perhaps the tour would have been better on a less busy weekday.

    I have been flying from this airport for more than one year and I can't help but note how much worse the hub has become since the beginning of the pandemic. The queues are stretching out monstrous, flights are delayed because of this, people are very nervous, this is a huge burden on passengers who are already under stress. The situation does not bother the workers at all. They habitually walk around the hall shouting about which one will fly away without you right now. Such a position was provided at the airport, but there are no more customs officers. For those interested, duty-free is not rich and not particularly cheap. On international flights there is an area with branded glasses at reasonable prices. The business lounge is not bad, but there is no hot food, only snacks. In the evening there is no one at the counter, so what is left of food and drinks for self-service. The bathrooms are very nice

    This centre was just okay. First, their lunch prices were astronomical for very little options. The place was rather small and there was often not enough seats for everyone at several lectures.

    There is only one lounge at Bologna Airport. It is located on the 1st floor before the security check.

    This lounge was quite poor considering the food service. Just a small selection of snacks was offered.

    Wine, beer, and coffee have to be asked from the bar.

    The entrance fee is 30 euros. I wouldn't pay that. Luckily we are Finnair Gold members and had complimentary access.
