We've broken this down into two sections. There are 9 neighborhoods and include large areas. Some neighborhoods are broken down further by zones.

Sede del quartiere: Neighborhood office

Borgo Panigale is now part of Borgo Panigale-Reno district. It's home to Ducati and the Bologna Airport.

Bolognina

Bolognina in the 1990's was a rough zone but it has changed dramatically. It's a pleasant and quiet neighborhood. It's technically outside of the wall but offers most of the same conveniences of being inside the wall. The zone is diverse and inexpensive.

Corticella

Lame

Marconi

Saffi

Barca

Santa Viola

A working class neighborhood. You won't find much nightlife here but it's right across from the University area.

Galvani

Colli

Often described as the Hollywood zone of Bologna. It's one of the most expensive areas in Bologna with many luxury homes. There's a few vineyards here too. You'll feel totally detached from the city while still being close to the city.

It's a hilly area so I don't recommend this area unless you plan on taking public transit or have a vehicle of your own.
