HAPPENINGS AROUND TOWN

From passing the morning in a museum to staying out late on the town, this chapter gives a general overview of what Bologna has to offer. Discovering your own favorite spots is half the fun, so don’t limit yourself to what’s here.

As always, start with the URP in Piazza Maggiore, which has extensive listings of concerts, plays, cultural events, museum exhibits, tours of the city and more. The city’s website, www.comune.bologna.it, has listings in Italian and English, as does the University of Bologna’s website, www.unibo.it. For information about nightspots, cinema and leisure, try the websites www.bongoclub.it, www.2torri.it (an e-magazine for Bologna) and www.anidride.com. La Repubblica and Il Resto del Carlino also list local arts and entertainment events every day. Dove magazine, found in most bars and pubs, also has entertainment listings. Additional information about tempo libero in the greater area may be found in Chapter 9: Provincia.
