British Airways has started flights on a new route from Heathrow Airport to the Italian city of Bologna.
The new daily service left Heathrow for the first time at 9.30am on April 29, and will depart for northern Italy at that time throughout the year.
It is hoped the route will help ease the burden on Gatwick Airport, which currently has 20 Bologna-bound British Airways’ flights per day.
Situated in the Emilia-Romagna region of the country, Bologna is one of the most picturesque cities in northern Italy.
Holidaymakers can sample coffee shops, bars, or even some authentic Bolognese sauce at one of the restaurants on the Piazza Maggiore, which is one of the largest squares in the old part of the city.
The Piazza Maggiore and the surrounding area is inspired by the Renaissance period, with its legacy in plain sight at Palazzo D’Accursio situated nearby.
Just around the corner is the iconic town hall, which boasts a large collection of art produced by a variety of famous Italian painters.
If you prefer the countryside, then why not venture slightly outside town to the medieval town of Dozza.
The small cobbled streets and brightly decorated buildings make the sleepy town of Dozza the perfect option for a day trip.
