AUTUMN in Bologna
WHERE: Perfectly located in the heart of Italy, Bologna is an excellent choice to experience the daily life of a vibrant modern city that has retained the beauty of its medieval heart. Bologna is named “The Learned” because it hosts the oldest university in the Western world, “the Fat” because it is home to good food, wine and cooking, and “the Red” due to the reflection of the bricks of its Middle Ages noble towers and palazzos linked by miles of porticoes.

GRAND HOTEL MAJESTIC GIA’ BAGLIONI ***** Bologna

WHAT: Bologna is a city that can offer a multitude of tours, activities, experiences, the kind of city where you can be discussing Chomsky with a leftie newspaper-seller one minute, and be eating like an erstwhile Italian king in a fine restaurant the next. Bologna is also the perfect access point to the exciting “Land of Motors” with Maserati, Lamborghini, Ducati and Ferrari factories. Visit the “Ferrari world” in Maranello includes the “Galleria Ferrari Museum” featuring a brand new wing with multimedia facilities, and a tasteful lunch at the Ferrari restaurant. After lunch in Maranello, will proceed to the historic town of Modena to visit “ Casa Enzo Ferrari”: in the futuristic 2,500 m2 pillar-free hall, visitors can get close and personal with the many cars exhibited, but also experience a show that – through an immersive biopic screened using 19 projectors – tells Enzo Ferrari’s incredible life story, spanning 90 years, taking them through his various incarnations: from the child who discovered racing at the beginning of 1900 to the pilot, from the manager of Scuderia Ferrari through to the manufacturer with so many triumphs to his credit.
