Top things to do in Bologna 

Though Bologna may not have canals, cliff-side villages, or historic ruins like other major Italian cities, it more than makes up for that with rich cultural attractions that give visitors an authentic Bolognese experience. The city is filled with spectacular museums and landmarks, fine shopping options, and immaculate dining spots that are a notch above the rest of Italy.

Popular museums in Bologna

Given its immensely vibrant past and rich history, one of the best ways to learn the stories of Bologna is through visiting its museums. The city is filled with world-class institutions that will leave you fascinated and intrigued. Here are some of the best museums in Bologna.

Museum of Modern Art in Bologna (MAMbo)

Known simply as MAMbo, this museum is located in the heart of the city’s art district — Manifattura delle Arti. Unlike other museums in Bologna, MAMbo displays modern art in visual form and boasts a permanent collection that follows the history of Italian art starting from World War II until present day. 

MAMbo bag policy

Guests can’t bring their bags inside the museum and must leave them in the designated lockers on the ground floor. A more secure alternative would be to leave your things in one of Bounce’s luggage storage locations.

Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna

Also known as the National Art Gallery of Bologna, this impressive museum is comprised of 30 halls used for both permanent and temporary exhibitions as well as conferences and workshops. The museum also houses an incredible collection that features works by some famous Italian artists such as Raphael, Titian, Reni, Guercino, and Perugino. 

Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna bag policy

Large bags are prohibited inside the galleries, and the museum provides lockers for storage. Because the lockers may be booked or too small, the best alternative is to store your things with Bounce. Find our nearest luggage deposit partner on the Bounce app.

Palazzo Poggi

This building was initially built for the Poggi brothers during the mid-1500s and has been converted into a museum. It hosts an extensive collection of different branches of science including anatomy, physics and chemistry, natural history, and geography. 

Palazzo Poggi bag policy

Oversized bags or backpacks are not allowed inside the Palazzo Poggi. To avoid inconvenience, deposit your gear with Bounce.

Shopping in Bologna

When it comes to shopping options, Bologna can keep up with the well-known shopping cities in Italy like Milan and Rome. From luxury and designer brands to novelty items and trendy Bolognese fashions, you’ll find plenty of retail spots in Bologna.

Minutes from Bologna Central Station, there are also plenty of fantastic food stalls in the area where you can grab a quick bite of street food after all the shopping.
