Professional and well run Information Centre. Excellent help and advice on what to do in Bologna. Although she did up sell us it was good value for money. 72 hour card definitely money well spent.

Title says it all - rude, useless, no knowledge, pointless. Only advantage is that it is close to a few good coffee bars and restaurants!
