WELCOME TO THE PENSIONE MARCONI, A CITY CENTER HOTEL IN BOLOGNA

LET US TELL YOU HOW YOU AND YOUR FAMILY CAN ENJOY YOUR VISIT IN THE HEART OF EMILIA
 

It is the city of knowledge, of delicious cuisine, and of artists: Bologna is home to a unique heritage and, during your stay at the Pensione Marconi,  a hotel located in the city center, you will be enchanted by this wonderful destination you can visit with family every time of the year. You can enjoy the city also for a quick visit, if you only have 24 hours to unplug.  Even a low budget permits to sleep and eat well in a city that offers countless services.  Let’s explore curiously interesting sites, have children reveal the city’s 7 secrets,  visit the Towers, gardens and museums where it is possible to play and learn about art without getting bored.

What can you do in Bologna in one day? If you think you will only stay one night there with your family, booking your room at the hotel near Bologna’s city center you can admire the enchanting historical city center. On Via Piella (Piella Street), you can find the first of the city’s 7 secrets, a mysterious Venice:  the little window overlooking the Moline Canal, which crosses through the city.  Atop the Asinelli Tower, you can discover a unique 360-degree view, and a broken vase, symbol of the city’s political power.  In Piazza Maggiore (Maggiore Square), right under the door, you can talk to one another through the wall, as if you had a cordless phone. Up along Strada Maggiore (Maggiore Street), stop at Corte Isolani and look up: try to find the three arrows stuck in the old palace’s wooden beams.  Did you find them?

What can you do with your family in Bologna during the weekend? If you have the chance to stay in Bologna overnight for more than one night in your city center hotel , there is more to enjoy for young and not-so-young.  Take your children to the Giannino Stoppani Library on via Nazario Sauro (Nazario Sauro Street), which houses countless books and multimedia materials for children. Go to the Margherita Gardens Park for a picnic; it is just around the corner from the city center and considered the city’s largest primary green space. With its English-style architecture, the park is home to a variety of tree and plant species, a small lake with fish, turtles, ducks and little boats, rides, electric car tracks, an inflatable castle, a trampoline and a caterpillar-shaped train running on dedicated tracks. Organize a treasure hunt to find the “Villanoviana” hut, a replica of ancient huts built by locals 2800 year ago with straw, dirt, and wood.  The entire Park serves as a green lung and a place of enchantment for children.

Museums open to children . After a quick nap in the hotel, take your children to museums that offer laboratories or tours specifically designed to tickles children’s curiosity. From Pensione Marconi , you can easily reach the Zoology Museum, which showcases embalmed animals from XVI-century collections and dioramas of Italian sites. In the Museum of Communication, you can enjoy Mr. Shadow’s magic show and an exhibit on radios, gramophones, cinema and mechanical musical instruments. Laboratories, workshops and guided tours to the Mambo, the Pepoli Palace and the Museum of Industrial Heritage, allow children to learn rudiments of science while having fun.
