Day 1 Make sure you take an early flight so you can make most of your days. A bus goes right into town from the airport. one way trip is about 6 euros, but if you get the Bologna card at the airport, you can get a roundticket for free., well worth it: the Bologna card!
Just take the bus from the airport all the way to the final stop, the trainstation of Bologna. From there it's just a simple walk to the hotel. Early? No problems, rooms are ready in the morning, but if not: the reception will store your luggage!
15:00 Of course, during a birthdaytrip there has to be cake! When in August everything else seems to be closed, you can always check out Gamberini! (at independenza there are a couple of other places to go for cake!)
