Bologna is a lively historic city in the Po Valley, in heart of the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. It's a pretty area of rolling hills that is notably wealthy and well-educated. Emilia-Romagna is also home to supercar companies Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. If you're hiring a car in Bologna, it may not be one of their models, but you'll soon find this is an easy city for driving around. The A13, A14 and A1 motorways give access to the rest of Italy and the city itself has an inner ring road, the SS64, giving access to all areas. All the medieval heart of Bologna is within this SS64 ring.
