week of Oct. 8th accomodation expensive!

We are looking at staying in Bologna from Oct. 6th to 11th. I can find some very reasonable accommodation for the weekend, (the 6th and 7th), but then prices seem to about triple on Monday. Is this always the case, that weekdays are more expensive, or is there something going on like a convention or festival?

Thanks!

Bologna is a major exhibition/trade show centre and yes there are shows during that period. See 2012 calender of events. As you have found prices double, and even more, during these periods.

the hotel market in Bologna is mainly geared to the fair so tariffs are boom/bust.

While they move in pack, I've found instances whern even close to fair events, some hotels could have keener prices for a single night: happenstance, you have to search and be willing to change hotel however.
