"Bicycle" Bologna Transportation Tip by alemir82

Bologna Transportation: 68 reviews and 72 photos

Going by bicycle is probably the most popular way of getting around for students. One can be purchased nearly anytime of day from your friendly drug dealer/bicycle thief on Via Zamboni. The going price for a "recycled" bicycle is generally 10 euros, but if you're patient you can generally haggle them down. Just be sure to listen for "psst bici" when you pass by. Be forewarned however, that the lifespan of a bicycle is relatively short. The general rule of thumb is to buy a lock and chain costing three times what you paid for the bicycle. Even then it will most likely be stolen during the course of the year.
