My wife loves Italy so we took the chance of a 6 day city break to Bologna, flights and hotel for £703 from Aberdeen Scotland, unfortuanately thro' CDG. The hotel was an €23 taxi ride from the airport and €9 to 14 from the Central (old) part of the city. Breakfast for two would have been €23 so we decided to shop at an adjacent supermarket, utilising money for the taxifares, coffee and excellent lunches in the city. ( Bus services were sparse) Apart from its relatively remote location, the Hotel's staff and the room we were given were really good, excellent wide bed, well appointed bathroom and very peaceful - however it appeared to be very underutilised and if you cared to look outside, covered in pigeon crap. We never used the restaurant, indeed the reception staff and a friendly Oz directed us to a nearby bar. Bologna is well posiioned for train trips to Venice and Verona (1hr30 at €40 for Prima class on the interregional trains, taxi fare €11-14 to the station) We know Florence and Milan fairly well so didn't bother going there. 5hrs in Venice were enough, far too many people doing what we were and I object to €14 for two very small beers which cost €3.75 in City centre Bologna. Verona is a cut above, no graffiti, friendly people and a truly excellent lunch (€64, gorgeous fillet steak/Italian savignon wine) 100mtrs east of the main square. Gripes - "e" ticketing which doesn't recognise pax names. Bubble gum chewing large American "adult" females ( I thought blowing bubbles was for kids?) and ofcourse the farce which is CDG.
