Got to the airport and found out that your tickets are not valid anymore? The lady at the information desk cannot help you?

Things happen, and there is a lifesaver for cases like this. Check out a story on how our loyal user made this all work and spend almost nothing on it.

We also have a story on roaming to be cut off  – both happened with Yolla users when they were on a trip. Take a look at them to always be prepared for anything!

Touristic Highlights

Thanks to the rich history of the city and the whole region, Bologna boasts many distinctive sights. Luckily, the perfectly preserved historical center is easy to discover on foot – all the must-visit spots are within walking distance from each other.

I strongly encourage to take a couple of days on sightseeing to explore all the magnificent places with no hurry. Besides, one can find all the historical data and useful information on all the sights online (see Useful links), and I’m going to share my own perfect path I would use to show around people coming to Bologna for the first time.
