2 BOLOGNA the city center Bologna s historical center is surrounded by a ring-road (the viale ) which traces the path of the 14 th century medieval city wall, which was torn down at the turn of the 20 th century, though some parts of it are still intact. Mostly all of the wall s 12 gates (the porta ) are still standing or have been restored. The gates are used today for access into the city center and are named after the main streets: Porta Castiglione, Porta Saragozza, Porta Mascarella, etc. Piazza Maggiore is Bologna s main square. Here you will find the San Petronio Basilica, the municipal building, a 24hr pharmacy, a picturesque open-air food market (just off to the left if facing the basilica), the public library Sala Borsa, the Neptune Fountain (a popular meeting point), the Palazzo Re Enzo, and the tourist office (for maps, gifts, theater tickets, event information, etc.). The University buildings are found throughout the center but most of the departments, offices and libraries are in Via Zamboni. Other university streets include Via Mascarella, Via Belle Arti, Via Belmeloro, Via delle Moline, Via Centrotrecento, Via Irnerio. A few websites that can help you discover Bologna: Imparare la lingua italiana è come salire su una grande collina. Continuo ad arrampicarmi e so che arrriverò in cima! Michelle,

3 HOW TO COMMUNICATE... CELL PHONES The four main cellular companies in Italy are: TIM Wind 119 (customer service number) Via Indipendenza 19 Via Irnerio 8 Via delle Moline 22/A/B Piazza della Mercanzia 6/E-6/F Via Indipendenza 41 Vodafone Tre Via Ugo Bassi, 21/H-L Via Indipendenza 1 Via Irnerio 23 Via Irnerio 10 Via Indipendenza 25/A Via Marconi 77/2 RECHARGEABLE CELL PHONE CARDS Pre-paid cell phone cards are sold at cell phone stores, newsstands and tabacchi. They can usually be purchased in various amounts from 10 and up. MAKING CALLS WITH YOUR CELL PHONE OUTSIDE OF ITALY If you travel to other countries, you should put a significant amount of credit towards your calls ( ricaricare il cellulare ) before leaving Italy. Your Italian provider will automatically switch to a local provider when you enter another European country, but credit can run out quickly since calls and texting will cost more. Some cell phone companies have designed plans with more economical rates for customers who want to use their cell phones while travelling (for example: Tim Senza Confini, Vodafone Passport). You would have to check if these types of international plans can be added to your national plan and what countries they are valid in. CALLING THE U.S. FROM ITALY AND RECEIVING CALLS IN ITALY FROM THE U.S. Calls to the U.S. from Italy with a cell phone usually cost around.50 or.60 eurocents a minute, with an additional charge (usually about.15 eurocents, depending upon your plan) when you pick up the call. (When you receive calls from within Italy there is usually no charge.) However, if you receive calls from the U.S. on your cell phone you will be charged, and the amount/minute will depend upon your calling plan. Most students use Skype (or Skype Out), Gmail videochat, etc., to make international calls home. Land lines are quickly being phased out with the increasing use of cell phones. If your apartment has one, bills are due on a bi-monthly basis. If you have a contract with Telecom, you will have to pay a subscriber s fee ( canone fisso ) in addition to the calls. Your calls will not be itemized on your bill unless this service is requested. A cheaper way to call abroad from a landline is to use a prepaid international phone card, such as the Europa card or Tiger card. They are sold at newsstands or in tabaccherie. The cheapest time to call domestically in Italy is between 6.30 pm and 8.00 am. To make international calls dial: 00+country code+ local area code+ local phone number. For example, to call the United States, you would dial the local area code + the phone number. 3

4 To receive a call from the U.S., the person calling you must dial: cell phone number, or, only for land lines, your local phone number. 39 is Italy s country code. 051 is Bologna s area code. You can find more information on making international calls in the White Pages section Cap e Prefissi: You will find a list of all foreign country codes as well as rates for international calls. To find information such as Italian area codes or zip-codes go to INFORMATION NUMBERS 1240 pagine bianche / white pages pagine gialle / yellow pages 170 for an international operator to make a collect call (in this case, Telecom Italia must be the provider) 187 Telecom Italia customer service EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND PROCEDURES The Italian equivalent of 911 is 118. No matter which of the following numbers you call, your emergency will be taken care of rapidly. The main Italian emergency numbers that you should memorize in your cell phone are: 113 Police/ambulance (Polizia di stato/ambulanza) 112 Local Police (Carabinieri) 118 Medical emergency-ambulance (ambulanza) 115 Fire department (Vigili del fuoco) Even if you ve run out of credit on your cell phone, or have forgotten your PIN, verify if you can still call for an emergency. You may notice the option SOS if you try to make a call with no credit or on the cell phone screen before inserting the PIN number. Other useful emergency and/or non-emergency numbers: Vigili urbani (to report noise, illegal activity, loitering) Bologna police station (Questura di Bologna) US Embassy in Rome* US Consulate Florence (Lungarno Vespucci, 38, Florence)* Gas or water problems (HERA) Electricity problems (ENEL) or Farmacie di turno (for pharmacies open after hours; updated lists are also posted outside of pharmacies) Guardia Medica** (quartieri San Vitale, San Donato, Santo Stefano e Savena) Guardia Medica** (quartieri Borgo Panigale, Reno, Saragozza, Porto e Navile) *The U.S. Consulates General in Italy have created a Facebook page to provide students with general information. To visit and join, search: American Citizen Services for US College Students in Italy. **to see a general doctor at night or during the weekend for non-urgent medical problems BCSP STAFF CELL PHONE NUMBERS Keep these numbers saved in your cell phone for any emergency or need: BCSP Resident Director, Dr. Andrea Ricci BCSP Student Services Coordinator, Danielle Di Leo

5 INTERNET / WIRELESS INTERNET Wireless internet is available in the BCSP office. You will also find that many students apartments have ADSL or wireless internet connections. Shortly after arriving in Bologna, you will receive a packet from the University of Bologna with information about the university, including your libretto for recording grades. One of the information sheets will include your UNIBO address and password. The first time you access your account you need to change the password. Wherever wireless is available, connect to the wi-fi labeled IPERBOLE_WIRELESS. After connecting, try to access any site and you will be re-directed to a log-in page. Type in your username and new password, click on the option Studenti and click log on. A new window should come up that says you are connected and how much time you have remaining. You have an allotment of 3 hours daily. For more information go to: and Or for a list of hot spots in Bologna s city center go to: COMPUTER ROOMS AND FREE INTERNET ACCESS IN BOLOGNA: Sala computer universitaria (more than 250 computers) Palazzo Paleotti Via Zamboni 25 Monday Saturday 9am 10pm Biblioteca Sala Borsa Piazza Nettuno 3 Monday 2:30 8pm Tuesday - Friday 10am 8pm Saturday 10am 7pm 60 and 30 minute sessions Sportello Iperbole For a list of University of Bologna study rooms c/o Ufficio Relazioni col Pubblico (URP) ( sala studio ) and their opening hours go to: Piazza Maggiore 6 Monday Friday 9:30am - 6:30pm (last sign up at 5:30pm) Saturday 9:30am 1:30pm Maximum 1 hour sessions. Reserve your time in advance. Biblioteca d Arte e di Storia di San Giorgio in Poggiale Via Nazario Sauro 22 Monday Friday 2pm - 7pm Saturday 9am 1pm Maximum 1 hour sessions INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS In case you will need to have an internet service installed in your apartment, the most popular internet and telephone providers in Italy are: Alice - Telecom: Infostrada: Fastweb: 5

6 Before ordering an internet service, make sure that your area has adsl or fiber optic coverage. Please keep in mind that there may be a significant wait before your order is processed and the connection made available. Students that do not have internet in their apartments, or have to wait a very long time for internet to be installed, usually purchase an Internet wifi key from any of the cell phone companies (TIM, WIND, VODAFONE or TRE). MAIL Post offices in Bologna are open from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm Monday through Friday and from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm on Saturday. The central post office in Piazza Minghetti and the post office in Via Grimaldi (off via Lame) are open from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm (but on Saturday only from 8:00 am to pm). To look up a specific post office in any Italian city for exact location and hours go to and under Servizi utili in the top right hand corner, select cerca ufficio postale and proceed from there. Stamps and envelopes can be purchased at any post office or tabaccheria. If you send a package with Poste Italiane, you will need to purchase a yellow poste italiane box. Other boxes, especially if they have brand names or images on them, will be rejected at the post office. Avoid the post office if you are sending letters and cards. Simply go a tabaccheria, have your envelope weighed, and purchase the stamps directly from the tabaccaio. Mail boxes are located outside post offices, and often outside the tabaccherie. Each box has two slots, one Per la città, while the other is Per tutte le altre destinazioni. Some postal terms: Terms for letters Posta Prioritaria = priority mail ( 1,60 to send a letter to the U.S.) Posta Raccomandata = registered mail Posta Assicurata = insured mail Postacelere 1 plus = urgent, next day (Mon-Fri) delivery letters or mailing documents up to 3kg within Italy Terms for packages Paccocelere 1 plus = urgent, next day (Mon-Fri) delivery of packages within Italy Paccocelere Internazionale = express shipping up to 30kg Pacchi per l estero = ordinary shipping by air or by boat You can have your mail sent directly to the BCSP office, rather than to your apartment. The correct mailing address is: STUDENT S NAME c/o Indiana University - BCSP Via Malcontenti Bologna Italy (If necessary for shipment you can provide the BCSP office number or your cell phone number. BCSP office tel ) Important information for having packages sent from the U.S. to Italy: Remind your family not to send cash. Each item must be described accurately. Avoid insuring shipments. Take new items or gifts out of original packaging to make them seem used. Do not ship cosmetics, lotions or other sanitary products as they may be subject to costly customs controls. Avoid shipping foodstuffs. Packaged, sealed foods may make it through customs if packaged with other 6

7 non-food items. Provide an estimated value for each item. Items estimated at 22 or less will most likely not be taxed. Contents estimated between 22 and 150 will most likely be taxed at 20% of their value. Additional customs taxes may be applied to any shipment. Even used photocameras and computers may be taxed. The best way to avoid customs costs is to buy what you need in Italy, whenever possible. Use an international courier service to ensure fast delivery to Italy with a tracking number. The tracking number allows you to trace the shipment. Customer service numbers for major US couriers in Italy are: FedEx UPS Mail Boxes Etc. locations in Bologna (Mail Boxes Etc. also offers Western Union services): Via Massarenti 8 bis Via della Grada 4/F Via Amendola 2/A Via Niccolò dall Arca 2/A (www.mbe.it/locator.php) FAXES Most photocopy shops ( copisterie ), photo shops, stationery stores (cartolerie) and tabacchi provide fax service. For school-related documents, the BCSP office can fax something on your behalf. You may also receive faxes at the BCSP office; the fax number is (+39) LAUNDRY LAUNDROMATS (LAVANDERIE/ LAVANDERIE A GETTONE) LAVA & LAVA, Via Irnerio 35 PULITO VELOCE, Viale Giovanni Vicini (angolo via Andrea Costa) 6 LAVANDERIA ORIANI, Viale Alfredo Oriani 12 (between Via Murri and Via Mazzini) DRYCLEANING (LAVASECCO) Express/next day dry-cleaning is rare in Italy. Expect to wait at least 2-5 days for your clothing to be ready. Lavasecco chains like Dagnini will ask your name and phone number and give you a tessera, or customer card, which is free. The chains, like Dagnini, are more economical. Dry cleaners tend to be rather expensive in Italy.

8 I consigli di cucina del Cuoco Superiore (aka Leo, BCSP Spring 2011) Provate la seguente ricetta Cappelletti Fantasia a casa: Mettere sale grosso nell acqua mentre bolle. Attenzione ai tempi di cottura. La pasta deve essere al dente! Ingredienti: Cappelletti (De Cecco) - almeno 80 grammi a porzione (abbondante) Sugo di pomodori secchi (Barilla) - alcuni cucchiai (a piacere) Peperoncini (a secondo del gusto- attenzione, sono piccanti) Mozzarella fresca- tagliata a fette A fine cottura, scolate la pasta e riversatela dentro la pentola a fiamma bassa e poi aggiungete il sugo e i peperoncini sempre mescolando. Mettete la pasta nei piatti e guarnite con la mozzarella. Quando non c è una cucina per cucinare, mangiate in questi posti: BOUNTY, Via delle Moline 6, per pranzo durante la settimana. Per 5-6 euro: un panino o un insalata e una bibita, e per finire, un caffè PANINI FARCITI, in Via Petroni, 2-4 euro per un grande panino. LA TUA PIADINA, in Via Borgonuovo, 5 euro per una grande piadina. Inoltre, per cena vi propongo: TRATTORIA BELFIORE, Via Marsala 11: è economica e sono specializzati nei piatti bolognesi. DA BERTINO, Via Lame 55: ordinate la lasagna - la migliore in tutta Bologna. C è anche l arrosto servito sul carrello che dovete ordinare e costa quasi 16 euro, ma la porzione è sufficiente da condividere tra due persone. TRATTORIA BIAGI, Via Savenella 9/A: i tortellini in brodo sono il piatto migliore, ma non ordinate il secondo - non vale la pena. Il PORTICO, Via Augusto Righi 11: da non perdere la zuppa di pesce per due persone. Per trovare delle buone ricette online vi suggerisco: Italian food is so good yet so simple. All risotto is, is rice in a frying pan while stirring in broth very slowly and you ve got 5 star quality food. Collin,

9 ACCESSING YOUR MONEY Bank hours in Italy Banks are open Monday-Friday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm and usually in the afternoon from 2:40 pm to 4:10 pm (opening times in the afternoon may vary from bank to bank so it s better to check in advance). Withdrawing money from an ATM The most convenient way to retrieve money from your home bank account is by using one of the many Bancomat (ATMs) in various locations throughout the city. You can withdraw cash with Cirrus cards as well as with credit cards, such as Visa and Mastercard. Look for the stickers on the bancomats to know if the machine accepts Cirrus transactions or your credit card. Usually the major Italian or Bologna-based banks will have these options, such as: UniCredit, Intesa Sanpaolo, Carisbo, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, Banca di Bologna, Banca Popolare di Milano. Since most banks charge a service fee for each international ATM transaction, it makes sense to withdraw the largest amount available at one time, rather than make more frequent withdrawals of lesser amounts. Daily withdrawal limits will vary according to bank; some permit withdrawals of 250 per day, others up to 500 per day, etc. Immediately notify your bank if you lose your ATM or credit card. Save the international customer service numbers in your cellphone and keep a photocopy of the cards. It is a good idea to have a backup ATM card or credit card with cash advance service so that you do not risk remaining without money. Make sure to keep your pin numbers separate from your card and wallet. You could memorize them in your cell phone under a secret name. Currency exchange Any of the following post offices in the city center will exchange dollars/euros and vice versa: Opening hours: Mon-Fri 8:30am-13:30pm. Sat 8:30am-12:30pm. Piazza dell Otto Agosto, 24- the post office closest to the BCSP office Via Cairoli, 9 Strada Maggiore, 82 Opening hours: Mon-Fri 8am-6:30pm. Sat 8am-12:30pm. Piazza Minghetti - Bologna s main central post office Via Grimaldi, 6 Currency may also be exchanged at the train station in Piazza Medaglie d Oro at the Forexchange counter, open 8:30am-8pm Mon-Sat, except for Dec 25th and Jan 1st. There are three different currency exchange possibilities all on the ground floor at the Bologna airport: Post office Carisbo bank, open Mon-Sat 7:30am-6:30pm. Travelex, open everyday from 6am-10pm (also sells international calling cards and Italian cell phone provider debit cards). Urgent money transfers You can use Western Union (no bank account necessary) to send cash from the U.S. to Italy or vice versa. The transfer is immediate as money is sent from a Western Union location to another Western Union location. Banks usually require more processing time for international money transfers. To find the location nearest you, go to these links: 9 The Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena in via Rizzoli allows foreign students to send bank wires (at a reasonable commission charge) without having a bank account. This service is useful for whoever needs to pay rent through a bonifico bancario.

10 TRAVEL & TRANSPORTATION BUS ATC Azienda Trasporti Comunali Tel You can buy tickets, get free bus maps or ask for information about any bus route at any of the ATC information offices located around Bologna: Via IV Novembre 16/A (near Piazza Maggiore) Piazza Medaglie d Oro (at the train station) Piazza XX Settembre (at the Via Marconi and Via Lame intersection) Bus tickets may also be purchased at the tabaccherie or at some newsstands. You must validate your ticket as soon as you board the bus by inserting the ticket in the white ticket machine at the front or the back of the bus. Some buses (but not all of them- indication is on the outside of the bus) have red ticket machines that allow you to purchase a 1-hour ticket on board. The red ticket machines only accept exact change. The bus driver does not provide tickets or change, except for the BLQ airport bus. If by chance the ticket machines are not working, notify the driver. Controllori (ATC inspectors) board buses at random to make sure all passengers have a validated ticket. If you re caught without a validated ticket, you will be fined (up to 150). The inspectors will ask to see your passport or permesso di soggiorno in order to write up the ticket, or verbale. Fines will have a deadline indicated on the verbale, and they can be paid at any of the ATC information offices listed above. Late fines are subject to additional fees. Types of tickets (for bus rides within Bologna s urban area): Orario - 1,20 purchased at an ATC office, tabaccheria, newsstand, etc, or 1,50 purchased on board with exact change valid for 1 single ride of 60min and you can transfer to different buses within the hour. Giornaliero - 4,00 valid for 24 hours from the first validation (The ticket needs to be validated just once, at the beginning of the first bus ride.) City Pass - 11 valid for 10 rides each ride 60 min. long each time you get on the bus you must validate the pass. The City Pass is impersonal; therefore, if you are traveling with 4 friends, you can validate the City Pass 4 times, as if you each had 4 separate tickets. Aerobus Percorso Centrale (or Corsa Semplice) - 3,00 valid for a single 60min ride within city limits. Aerobus BLQ 6,00 - valid for a single 60 min. ride to or from the airport. Impersonale Studenti 27,00 - monthly ticket. Must be validated just once at the beginning of the first ride and remains valid until the last day of the month (for example: you buy the ticket Oct 1, you validate the ticket Oct 1, the ticket expires Oct 31. Or you buy the ticket Oct 15, you validate the ticket Oct 15, the ticket expires Oct 31.) You must show ATC your UNIBO student ID card or other proof (i.e. libretto universitario) that you are a student in order to obtain this type of ticket. Each time you board the bus, you will need to have this proof of identity with you in case the controllori check tickets. Bus schedules Most buses run until 1:00 am. Schedules are posted at bus stops or on the ATC website. Hours are different for weekdays, feriali, and weekends/holidays, festivi. 10

11 Bus etiquette A few seats are reserved in the front of all buses for senior citizens and the disabled. If you are sitting in one of these marked seats and see an elderly or disabled person board the bus, it is respectful to move to another seat or stand. You may see younger people on the bus offer their seats to the elderly or women accompanied by children. You should board the bus from the front or back doors. The middle doors are for getting off the bus. You may have to make an exception to the rule when the bus is extremely crowded and it becomes impossible to move closer to the exit doors. Beware of pickpockets on crowded buses and keep an eye on your belongings!! TAXI COTABO CAT COSEPURI / Auto blu (because the taxi is dark blue rather than the typical white car) The three taxi services listed above are available 24/24. There will be an extra surcharge if you call a taxi to pick you up. You can also go directly to a taxi stand. There are several stands throughout the city (Piazza Maggiore, the train station, Piazza Malpighi, Via Santo Stefano at the corner of via Guerazzi, via Indipendenza in front of the Hotel Regina, Viale 12 Giugno in front of the Appellate Court). A trip from the train station to the BCSP office in Via Malcontenti will cost approximately 5. A trip to the airport from the BCSP office will cost about 20. Costs will vary if late at night, very early in the morning, or in traffic during commuting hours. Remember: -Taxis cannot be hailed on the street. -There are surcharges on luggage. -Drivers are not tipped. However, you may want to tip a driver 1 if he/she helps you with loading your bags into the trunk. You can also call a taxi by sending an sms to: Write the city (Bologna) and precise address. You will receive a response sms from the taxi company with the car identification number and wait time. TRAINS Bologna s train station is one of the major train stations in Italy. It is located in Piazza Medaglie d Oro, close to the city center, and served by many bus lines. For example, bus #25 is very frequent and stops in Piazza Maggiore. The ticket office is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Complete schedules are posted in the train station waiting area and/or along the platforms, binari. Schedules and purchasing tickets You can view schedules on-line: or You can also buy tickets from the CTS - Centro Turistico Studentesco, which offers discounts to students, in viale Filopanti 4/m, open Mon-Fri from 9,30am-1:30pm/2:30pm-6:30pm and Sat from 10am-12:30pm. Some travel agencies make Trenitalia reservations but apply a surcharge, around 2/ 5 per ticket: WALLABY VIAGGI, Via dell Indipendenza 67 SALVADORI VIAGGI, Via Ugo Bassi 13 Types of trains The highspeed trains are: Frecciarossa (aka Eurostar Altavelocità), Frecciargento and Frecciabianca (aka Eurostar City). With the Freccia/Altavelocità trains you can get from Bologna to Florence in 37 minutes, from Bologna to Milan in 1 hour and from Bologna to Rome in 2 hours and 20 minutes. Normal-speed trains (with more economical ticket prices) are the Intercity (IC), Regionale Veloce (RV) and Regionale (R). 11

12 Validating train tickets You do not have to validate Freccia/Eurostar/Altavelocità or Intercity tickets because a reservation is required. Usually when you reserve a seat, you do not need to validate the ticket. Tickets without reserved seating (such as Regionale or Euronight trains) must be validated before boarding the train by punching the ticket in one of the yellow machines found throughout the station or along the platforms. If you are travelling on a round-trip ticket, you need to validate the ticket twice (going and returning). Before planning your trips always remember to check for strikes. The website is constantly updated with national and regional strike information. This information is also usually published on the Trenitalia/Ferrovie dello Stato websites. Please remember to sign the Vai in Viaggio??? sheet in the office when making travel plans. For your own safety, we need to have a contact number where you can be reached when you travel outside of Bologna. If you have a cell phone, make sure we have the number and that you either leave the cell phone on or check your messages. Reimbursements All passengers are entitled to a bonus if the train is delayed or if the heating or air conditioning units were malfunctioning during the trip. To request a bonus, go to the train station and ask for a bonus form, un modulo per un bonus, at the Ufficio Assistenza Clienti or at the ticket counter. Fill in the form and attach your ticket. Find the address of the destination train station on the back and send the form+ticket to that station. (For ex: if you travelled from Bologna to Roma Termini, you will send the bonus request to Roma Termini.) AIR TRAVEL Guglielmo Marconi International Airport Bologna s airport is the third most important airport in Italy. You can reach the airport by taxi or by using the Aerobus-BLQ service (starting at 6am and ending at 11.40pm). The ticket costs 6,00 and may be purchased on board. Travel time from the airport to the city centre is about 25 minutes. For the Aerobus timetable and bus stops go to: STUDENT TRAVEL AGENCIES CTS CENTRO TURISTICO STUDENTESCO, viale Filopanti 4/m, tel , Mon-Fri 9:30am- 1:30pm/2:30pm-6:30pm and Sat 10am- 2:30pm. *At CTS you can purchase an ISIC internationl student id card, in case you were not already issued one in the United States. It costs 10 and you ll need a student ID card or documentation verifying your enrollment status at your home school. HOTELS A passport is necessary to check into hotels in Italy. If you do not have your passport, the hotel will not proceed with the check-in. Italian anti-terrorism laws (and other European countries have similar rules) require that hotels give a list of all guests to the local police station. 12

13 INTERNATIONAL ENTRY/EXIT COUNTRY REQUIREMENTS If you are studying abroad on a U.S. passport, and you plan on travelling to other countries outside of Italy, or the EU, check the U.S. Department of State website (travel.state.gov), for entry/exit requirements, such as a visa, or for information on safety/security/required vaccinations. Check the requirements for all countries that you will be passing through. If you are not studying abroad on a U.S. passport you should look for this type of information (for exampledo you need a visa to visit any countries other than Italy?) on the website of your native country s consulate or embassy in Italy or contact your passport country s consulate/embassy in the destination country. RENTAL CAR COMPANIES A few aziende autonoleggio in Bologna include: Hertz Via del Triumvirato 84 (near Marconi Airport) Via Amendola 16 (near the train station) Sixt Via del Triumvirato (at Marconi Aiport) Viale Pietramellara 35/1 (near the train station) Budget Via del Triumvirato (at Marconi Aiport) Via San Rocco 11 BICYCLE Probably the most convenient, ecological and economic way to get around in Bologna is by bicycle. Just be careful in traffic! Buy a used bike to reduce the possibility of theft. You can find used bicycles in bicycle repair shops or you can visit the websites and bologna.kijiji.it/ or check the classifieds in newspapers such as Secondamano, Il Bo or Il Resto del Carlino (Bologna section). Here is a short list of places where you can buy bikes in Bologna (a longer list is kept in the BCSP office along with a map of bicycle paths, piste ciclabili, in the city center): Bicycle, Via Petroni 22/A (tel ). Sells and buys used bikes. Opening hours: 9am 7pm. Tandem, Strada Maggiore 90/c (tel ). Sells new bikes and buys them back when you leave. Opening hours: 8:30am 12:30pm; 3:00pm 7:00pm. La bottega del ciclo, Via Massarenti 90/a-b (tel ). Il Market delle 2 ruote, Via S. Donato 1/c (tel ). Opening hours: 8:30am 12:30pm, 3pm 7pm. The municipality, Comune di Bologna, gives residents the opportunity to rent bikes for free from Piazza XX Settembre (in front of the Autostazione ), or in Via IV Novembre (in front of the ATC office), off Piazza Maggiore. In order to rent bikes you have to register in one of the various ATC offices in Bologna (see the BUS section of this Guide for addresses). You will be given a key to unlock the bike, and, after using your bike, you have to bring it back to the ATC bike rack by a certain hour. You can rent bikes from 7.00 am to pm. When you register, ask if there are fines that you would have to incur if the ATC bike is stolen. Bicycles sold by street vendors in Piazza Verdi are stolen bikes and it is illegal to purchase these bikes. Be careful where you leave your bike. Bike theft in Bologna is rampant, and can happen anywhere you park your bike outside along a street. The only way to try to prevent theft is to buy a strong lock and chain, and always try to secure the bike to an immovable object, such as a lamp post. Try to avoid wrapping the chain around the wheel, as the thieves will detach the wheel to steel the bike. 13

14 If you walk along Via Zamboni on a hot summer night, you are accompanied by the hushed chants of bici, bici.. and after if you answer you can get a bike for as cheap as 10 euro (15$). There are times where they tell you to wait five minutes five minutes so that they can go steel the bike right then and there to sell it to you. Seeing as almost everyone gets their bike stolen at least once while living in Bologna, you come to find that the cheap bike you buy one day is the same cheap bike someone else will buy a week later. When first arrived in Italy I thought going the stolen way was very tempting, however being a believer in karma I decided to try to use it as my last resort. Instead I put up an announcement on sites like Kijiji.it and Bakeca.it for a bike with a basket, light, and bell for around 35 euro. I was able to get some bites and decided to get one for 40 euro with everything I asked, which I thought was a steel since most legit bicycles cost 60 euros and up in Bologna bike stores. Waiting for the seller at the door of San Donato I was surprised to see a little old man turn the corner o a bubbly pink bike, basket and all. I paid him and became an official Bolognese biker. Seeing as the last time I road a bike I was seven, let s just say that my first commute to class was a wobbly one. I think I realized the other day just how much love I have for my bicycle. I rode into town to meet up with a friend and his roommate. Needless to say it started to rain, so I decided to go straight home. My bike on the other hand would be spending a bleak night locked up on an obscure street in the center, right under a tow away sign. I woke up in the morning with a sick feeling that my bike had been towed or even more likely stolen overnight. If it had been towed I would be in utter shock that in Italy getting internet in you apartment takes more than 2 months but one unattended bicycle is confiscated in less 24 hours. So pretty much I power walked to Via Marconi in hopes that my bike didn t get stolen. When I saw the pink rusty paint of my bike I swore, like a mother to a lost child, that I would never leave it alone again. I should really name it. Alessandra, For updates and info on BIKE AUCTIONS for students sponsored by the Università di Bologna and the Comune di Bologna to promote legal bike sales: The associations scatenati and l Altra Babele will buy your used bike at the end of year or semester, repair it if necessary, and put it up for auction. For more information about buying or selling used bikes write to or or call ,

15 MEDICAL CARE Bologna is known for its innovative health care, considered amongst the best in Italy. EMERGENCY CARE For medical emergencies dial 118 to call an ambulance, or go to the nearest 24 -hour emergency room (Pronto Soccorso) at any of the following hospitals: Policlinico Sant Orsola (www.aosp.bo.it) Via Albertoni 15 (just outside Porta San Vitale or Porta Mazzini) Ospedale Maggiore Largo Nigrisoli 2 (off Via Saffi, outside Porta San Felice) Tel Istituto Rizzoli (for orthopedic emergencies during the day) Via Pupilli 1 (at the upper end of Via Castiglione, next to San Michele in Bosco church) If you go to the pronto soccorso, and it is not a real emergency, the hospital may ask you to pay a minimal fee, otherwise called il ticket in Italian, equal to about 18/25. GENERAL CARE Non-emergency medical care is obtained from a private doctor. Doctors and specialists indicate their offices with signs marked Ambulatorio. Patients usually call ahead for an appointment. Here below you will find a list of medical professionals that you can contact directly or with the help of BCSP. Word of mouth is also an excellent way to find a good doctor so don t be afraid to ask around! Dr. Stephen Williams (American general practitioner) Via D Azeglio 61 Tel cell (Dr. W prefers to be contacted by sms for appts or prescriptions!)

(This is more or less what dentists in Bologna charge.) As an Indiana University - BCSP student, you may have a 15% discount. You may need to show your student ID card or the letter from BCSP that declares you as a student. Dipartimento di Scienze Odontostomatologiche (University of Bologna School of Dentistry/ Orthodontics/Oral Surgery) Via S. Vitale 59 Tel Hours open for student visits (just walk-in, no appointments): 8:30am 11:30am, Monday Friday The visit costs 50. If you show your UNIBO student ID card, you will get a 25% discount. Ask the dentist about the prima visita. It may not be possible to just have a cleaning. You may have to have a full dental consultation (the prima visita ) and then return for a cleaning at another time. You could try to explain that you are an exchange student, and therefore you do not need to develop a dental history with the dentist in Bologna. PHYSICAL THERAPISTS Dr. Marco Orsi (speaks english) Via Emilia Ponente, 34 Cell CHIROPRACTORS Dr. Paul Caruso Via Cracovia, 5 (between the end of Via Mazzini and the Parco dei Cedri in San Lazzaro) Tel DERMATOLOGISTS Dr. Nicola Venturo Via Oberdan 7 Tel GYNECOLOGISTS Gynecologists in Italy usually work privately, in hospitals and through the universities. Therefore, they may see patients only 1 or 2 days or afternoons a week. Some have secretaries that make appointments; 16

17 others make appointments on their own and may not respond right away. The visit usually costs around 100, but may cost more for additional testing. Dr. Stefania Tabanelli (speaks English) Via Libia 20/6 A Tel cell Dr. Tabanelli is a well-known gynecologist in Bologna. Her visits are costlier than the norm ( 150), but include most gynecological exams. When you call to make an appointment, you may want to ask what exams you will have/need, and the total cost. Dr. Micaela Bonavia (speaks English) Poliambulatorio Airone Via Massarenti 46 (in front of Sant Orsola Hospital, 10 minutes walk from the Due Torri or bus #14) Tel Dr. Leda Bertocchi Via D Azeglio 63 Tel OPHTHALMOLOGISTS Dr. Sergio Cascione Via Marconi 44 (Poliambulatorio San Camillo) Tel or Via Emilia Levante 137 (Villa Laura) Tel cell Dr. Sandra Tonelli Piazza San Francesco 2 Tel BILINGUAL (ENGLISH/ITALIAN) CERTIFIED COUNSELOR Linda Moffa , Linda s parents are Italian. Linda grew up in Massachusettes and attended Mt. Holyoke College. She is similar to an on-campus college counselor in the U.S., although not associated with UNIBO. She will refer students to a psychologist, if necessary. Linda is also available to help students with academic and career decision-making. PSYCHOLOGISTS/PSYCHIATRISTS The University of Bologna offers a free Counseling Service (SAP- Servizio di Aiuto Psicologico) to all enrolled students. The SAP office does not provide emergency counseling; therefore, if you need immediate care, refer to the list of private practitioners below (the visit will cost around 75) to schedule an appointment as soon as possible, or go to the emergency room, Pronto Soccorso (see the Emergency Care section at the beginning of this Medical Care section in this Guide). The SAP office is located on the 2 nd floor of the University of Bologna Psychology Department in Viale Berti Pichat 5. It is open Monday Friday (excluding holidays) from 9am 1pm. Walk-ins only; no appointments. To schedule an appointment, go to the SAP office, fill out a questionnaire, and leave your telephone number. In approximately two days you will be called to begin counseling. The counseling service consists in 4 appointments (1 each week). If the counselor deems necessary during the fourth appointment, you may be prescribed additional free therapy. However, usually the four appointments are sufficient. SAP counseling is provided in Italian, but, upon request, it may be possible to schedule an appointment with a psychologist that speaks English. It would be best to indicate this preference on the questionnaire the first time you go to SAP. 17

18 Private-practice psychiatrists/psychologists: Dr. Selleri (psychiatrist specialized in young adult psychology, speaks English) and Dr. Francesco Berti Ceroni (psychiatrist, speaks English) Via Vallescura 2 Tel , Cell (Dr. Selliri), Cell (Dr. Ceroni) CONTRACEPTION Preservativi (condoms) are available in all pharmacies and in 24-hour dispensers located outside pharmacies or tabaccherie.

CENTER FOR WOMEN AGAINST VIOLENCE La Casa delle Donne per non subire violenza Via dell Oro 3 Tel The center offers a variety of services such as: telephone counseling, in-person counseling, support groups, and documentation for research on the issue of violence against women. PHARMACIES AND PRESCRIPTIONS You can have prescriptions filled at any pharmacy, but they have to be prescribed by an Italian doctor. The pharmacist may ask to see your codice fiscale, which is indicated on your UNIBO student ID card. Ask the pharmacist for a receipt, scontrino. Send the receipt (you could keep a copy for your records) to your U.S. insurance company for a reimbursement. Typical over-the-counter medications, such as aspirin, cold/throat relief, vitamins, may be purchased without a prescription. If you use an over-the-counter medication in the U.S., and you would like find a similar product in Italy, bring the bottle with you or know the main ingredients. For example, the Italian head-ache medicine called Moment contains mostly ibuprofen, like Advil. Momendol contains naproxen, like Aleve. Tylenol s main ingredients are acetaminophen/paracetamol, like Italy s Tachipirina or Efferalgan. For any doubts or concerns, consult Dr. Williams (on the first page of the Medical Care section in this Guide.) Remember to tell pharmacists and doctors about allergies to any medicines and their ingredients. 18

19 Just like in the U.S., Italian pharmacies sell generic brands, which usually cost less. Pharmacies take turns being open on Sundays and holidays. The list of Farmacie di turno are posted outside, usually near the door, of all pharmacies. The Farmacia Comunale in Piazza Maggiore is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Body temperature in Italy/Europe is considered normal from 35.5 C up to 37 C = 98.6 F. A light fever may be between 37 C and 38 C. 38 C = F. 39 C = F. 40 C = 104 F. A 41 C fever and above is considered severe, and you should seek a doctor immediately or go the emergency room. HERBAL MEDICINE SHOPS Erboristerie (natural, homeopathic stores) are everywhere in Bologna. Some focus more on herbal remedies, others more on ecological/cruelty-free beauty products or vegetarian/vegan food, essential oils, teas. (Some pharmacies also sell homeopathic products.) (For health food stores, see the supermarkets section in the following pages.) A few erboristerie in centro: Artemisia, Via A. Righi 7/A La Bioprofumeria, Via San Vitale 36/H, Elisir d Isis, Via dell Indipendenza 40 Erboristeria Montanari, Via Marsala 23/A Erboristeria Verde Essenza, Via Rizzoli 40/B Erboristeria La Madia, Via Fusari 6 Barbalbero Aromatario, Via Broccaindosso 16/A Erboristeria della Stazione, Piazza delle Medaglie d Oro 2/4 L Erbolario, Via Orefici 4/A L Erica, Via Marconi 30/A L Agrifoglio Erboristeria, Via San Felice 118 La Salute Parafarmacia, Via Barberia 20 Being here in Bologna gives you so many opportunities to try new things. My friend and I found out about a class that teaches you how to make pasta by hand, and she convinced me to go. I am a disaster in the kitchen, but I agreed to go nonetheless, and I had the time of my life. This really awesome old lady who has been making pasta for something like 12 years came and taught us how to make the dough, roll it out, and cut and bend it into different shapes. At the end we got to eat everything that we made, and it was absolutely delicious! The lesson took place at a gorgeous little bed-and-breakfast out in the countryside, and it was definitely one of the most authentic Italian experiences that I have had here so far. Even if you are a little skeptical at first, I highly recommend going out on a limb and trying things like the pasta class, because it really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!- Megan,

20 SAFETY Bologna is generally a safe city. Use the same common sense caution in Bologna as you would in any major American city. For example: be aware of your belongings at all times; store wallets in deep backpack pockets or completely zip your purse; do not take your wallet out of your pocket or purse if someone asks you for money; be aware of your surroundings at ATMS; avoid being too friendly if someone stops you on the street for any type of information or money; do not take dark or isolated streets home at night; opt for a taxi rather than a bus if it s late. Be realistic about being a foreigner and how this may draw attention to you. After being in Bologna for a few weeks or months, it is easy to feel more blended in. However, something about your clothing, your accent, your stature or appearance may communicate that you are foreign, or American, or at least of anglo-saxon culture. General guidelines: Use common sense when walking around the city, especially in the evening or at night. Be aware of your surroundings, and do not venture where you do not feel comfortable. Parts of Bologna s city center to avoid, especially at night, are Piazza Verdi and Via Petroni, Piazza XX Settembre and the areas around the train station, Parco Montagnola. Be particularly careful on crowded buses, at bus stops and food or flea markets. These are primary locations for pickpocketing wallets or cell-phones. Be aware of how you are holding your bag or if it s open. If you are carrying a backpack, turn it with the pocket facing you. If, for some reason, you have a lot of money on you, put it in a few different places, so that if you do get pick-pocketed, at least you won t lose everything. Bike theft is a major petty-crime industry in Bologna: if you buy a bike, do so legally and purchase along with it the strongest lock you can find. Try to walk in groups at night or, if walking alone, walk in well-lit areas. Avoid dark ally ways, parks and parking lots. Do not retrieve money alone from an ATM machine, or bancomat, at night. To avoid having to walk alone at night, always carry an extra bus ticket and enough money for a taxi ride home. Never hitch-hike! Avoid street vendors and anyone who approaches you asking for money. Dealing with theft. If your wallet is stolen you should cancel immediately all atm cards, credit cards, etc. If your cell-phone is stolen, report the incident and number to the cellular company. Go to the Questura s Ufficio Denunce and file a denuncia (report) immediately. The Ufficio Denunce is located in Via degli Agresti (off of Piazza Galileo). It is open 24 hours a day, every day. You will need to make a list of everything that was in your wallet/purse. If your wallet or cell-phone is found, you will be contacted by the Questura. Bring a valid form of ID with you to the police station, if possible. If your University of Bologna ID card is lost or stolen, go to the Questura to file the denuncia (as described in the above paragraph). Take a copy of the denuncia and a fototessera to the Ufficio Relazioni Internazionali on Via Zamboni 33. Please notify the BCSP staff before filing the denuncia and before going to the UNIBO International Relations office in via Zamboni 33. Contact a BCSP Staff Member Please keep your cell phone charged (both battery and money-wise) at all times as this is the most efficient and the only way we can quickly reach you. It is imperative that you keep the BCSP staff updated with your current contact details ( and cell-phone number). In the event that the BCSP staff finds it necessary 20

21 to give your phone number or address to any BCSP affiliated person for emergency purposes only, we will presume that you give permission to do so. Please notify us in writing if you request that your contact information not be divulged. GROUP EMERGENCIES (ACT OF TERRORISM OR NATURAL DISASTER) In the event of an emergency caused by a major, tragic event please send a text message to any of the BCSP staff members to notify them about your safety. In the interim, the BCSP staff will attempt to contact all students. In the case the telephone network is down, students are required to gather at Neptune Fountain, should that location be unaffected, within 2 hours of the event, to meet with a BCSP staff member. Information about theft and emergency procedures are also on the BCSP website: EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND PROCEDURES The Italian equivalent of 911 is 118. No matter which of the following numbers you call, your emergency will be taken care of rapidly. The main Italian emergency numbers that you should memorize in your cell phone are: 113 Police/ambulance (Polizia di stato/ambulanza) 112 Local Police (Carabinieri) 118 Medical emergency-ambulance (ambulanza) 115 Fire department (Vigili del fuoco) US EMBASSY AND CONSULATE GENERAL NUMBERS Rome Milan Florence Naples PASSPORT / PERMESSO DI SOGGIORNO Keep a photocopy of these documents with you when in Bologna. When you travel outside of Bologna, you need to have the original documents on hand. 21

22 SHOPPING & SERVICES Most stores in Bologna are open from 10am 1pm and from 3pm 7:30pm.
