InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Bologna

Hello to all Americans in Bologna! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Bologna? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Bologna which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Bologna rivals most cities with its culture and cuisine. The Italian food capital is a busy city known for its beauty, delicious cuisine, vibrant nightlife, ancient architecture, and much more! With the bus and train services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in one of the surrounding towns of the metropolitan area of Bologna, which are just a short journey away from Bologna’s center.

Although Bologna has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Bologna, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
