Travel inspiration in Florence and Bologna
Florence, the capital of Tuscany region, Italy
Florence (Firenze in Italian) is nestled within the Tuscan region of northern Italy and surrounded by rolling vineyards and olive groves. Visitors are just as beguiled by the beauty of the city itself as they are by the paintings and sculptures found in its many museums. The city was home to many well-known artists, writers, explorers, and scientists. Amongst its most famous residents were Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Galileo. Famous for its rich history and considered as the birthplace of Renaissance the city is nowadays a popular tourist destination and is ranked as a UNESCO World heritage site. Many of Florence’s churches are works of art in themselves. The most famous of the city’s churches is the Santa Maria del Fiore, known simply as the Duomo.
In Bologna , let yourself be surprised
Student city Bologna’s past lives on in its towers , churches and palaces and the interlocking piazzas and colonnades of blood-red brick: the colour of Bologna’s greatest gift to students everywhere – spaghetti Bolognese.
Reviews & ratings Florence - Bologna
It was our first trip to Italy where we used Italian trains. We found the train travel very enjoyable.. All trains ran on time, they were clean and very comfortable. I would definitely use them again.
Once we found the new station at Bologna (station 18) in the new building and at level -5, all was OK, the train was very nice and comfortable, very fast trip to Florence, no stress, very pleased with the results.
Very convenient and cheap way to travel. Excellent price by booking and paying online and in advance. Great to arrive in the centre of a city.
We have very pleasant experience with our recent train trips in Italy; we have traveled between Venice - Florence, Florence-Bolongna, Bolongna-Rome on the high speed trains. The cabin has been very modern, clean with comfortable and large seats, and the foods from the on-board kitchen were reasonable priced. The staff including conductors were friendly, although some of them only speak limited English (but hey, this is in Italy). The train system in Italy is more friendly for passengers than in France, you are allowed to get on the train without showing tickets, which are randomly inspected by the onboard conductors. Fast, comfortable, reliable, and in-expensive way of travel in Italy!
