Le Stanze is one of the most beautiful bars travelers will ever see. It is located in what used to be a chapel, decorated with original frescoes that date back to the 17th century. The antique feel of the place deeply contrasts with the modern art and photography that is usually on display. The mix of different time periods is somehow refreshing. Visitors should come here to enjoy an appetizing drink and snack in one of the most unusual settings Bologna has to offer.

Osterie have recently become almost synonymous with restaurants, but this one has kept true to its origins and does not serve food. Instead the focus here is on wine and an authentic, no-frills meal, with no added distractions. Visitors get to bring their own food, which they will be able to enjoy on the long wooden tables, sitting side by side with others. Great wines and beers are served here, starting at only two Euros.
