Bella Italia also in the winter half-year possible: From 31 October, Ryanair is starting a new direct flight connection to Bologna in Italy. Flights will take place on Thursdays and Sundays, making a weekend trip possible.
As the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna (390,000 inhabitants) is primarily known as a university city. Founded as early as 1088, the university is one of the oldest in Europe and has over 80,000 students. The city is also the namesake of the Bologna Declaration, signed in 1999 (including tiered Bachelor's / Master's degree systems), which reformed the European Higher Education Area. Students in the Erasmus programme can benefit from this connection - especially because Ryanair is a partner of the Erasmus Student Network (https://www.ryanair.com/gb/en/plan-trip/explore/erasmus).
The Emilia-Romagna region is also known as the "Motor Valley". Traditional names such as Lamborghini, Maserati, Ducati and Ferrari are located here - which is a good fit for the automotive supply industry in the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region. A special attraction for sports car fans is the Ferrari Museum in Modena, which is only about 40 kilometres away from Bologna.
In addition to Bologna, Ryanair will also be flying to Palermo in Sicily in winter 2021/22.
