Travel Blogs from Bologna
Breakfasted in hotel, met up with Henry and Chloe who had already made some purchases. Went up on the terrace of the church for nice views of bologna. Said our goodbyes to Henry and Chloe who were on their way to Biella for Henry to catch up with his Italian bosses and tour the factory. Sarah was keen for a pizza and directed us towards a …
Dinner last night was particularly odd. Having spent three hours sitting in my room writing this blog and enjoying the first bath of my trip, I was disinclined to wander down to dinner until around 10:30pm. In Rome, this would have been ideal- the American tourists would have cleared out of the restaurants in the alleys surrounding Piazza Navona, …
Today was all about socks (and Bologna). My sock situation had become desperate after I realized all of my clean pairs had holes in them, which would almost certainly interfere with my ability to purchase shoes in Milan tomorrow…
I spent 45 minutes this evening trying to buy a pair- any pair. I started out at Zara, which was cheap …
Spent some time after breakfast wandering around Parma town with the shops now open. Called into a delicatessen and bought some olives, tomatoes, bread and Parmigano cheese chunks for a 'picnic' lunch later, as well as some red Lambrusco, some local Balsamic Vinegar, pasta and some olive oil, to take home. Checked out and made our way to Bologna, a short trip of 60 miles taking just over an hour ...

A relaxing and enjoyable breakfast was had
in the hotel restaurant, breads and pastries like that you do not see in buffet
breakfasts at home, a couple of coffees to kickstart the day went down nicely.
Now I am waiting to be collected before
heading to Catollica…

Excellent hotel that runs great specials
This was the nicest hotel we stayed at on a 5 city Italian trip. The rooms were absolutely beautiful with hardwood floors and paneling, the service was knowledgeable and friendly, and the amenities (workout room, included buffet breakfast, free internet connection downstairs) were superb. The location, right across the street from the train station, makes it a great base to explore Florence or Venice from.We stayed in the first week of June, 2003 when the hotel was offering special rates of under 100 dollars; I would be tempted to stay there again even at twice the price.
Starhotel Excelsior is very comfortable and convenient
My husband and I have just spent a week at the Starhotel Excelsior in Bologna and had a very enjoyable stay. The facilities and service were excellent, as was the food. Apart from a very good breakfast each day, we also used the Avorio restaurant one evening, and found the style and standard definitely gourmet. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. The hotel is very conveniently located opposite the station, which is the terminus for the airport bus and also makes travel to other towns in the area (or, indeed, elsewhere in Italy) very easy. The main park is close by and it's only a 15 minute walk to the centre of Bologna, which we found a very beautiful and civilised city.
