Venice to Bologna Drive?

Any suggestions for a good city to stay in overnight between Venice and Bologna? I'll be traveling by car in early September and don't know the area at all. A quiet, romantic city (and hotel recommendations, if possible) would be ideal. Thanks!

You probably don't need to stay overnight, I think it is a fairly quick trip. There are three Bolognas listed on Mapquest. If you are going to the one in the north, Verona is a lovely city that I think is on the way.

It really is no distance in a Car, Venice - Bologna, you would not need to stop off half way,

Venice to Bologna is 148 kilometres, autostrada virtually all the way. Really no need to break your journey as you should do it comfortably in under 2 hours. Much better to maximise your time in Bologna

Thanks for all the comments. I'll be staying in Bologna for a week after a few days in Venice, but hoped to fit in one more city to visit on the way. Is it not worth it?

Verona is not on the route from Venice to Bologna but well worth a visit.

It would not be too much out of your way and you can get to Bologna from there easily too.

Venice to Verona approx 1 hour.

Verona to Bologna approx 1.15 hours

Here's another vote for Verona - We stopped in Verona on our way from Venice to Bologna - we stayed at Hotel Victoria and enjoyed both the location ( a short walk to the arena area) and the ambience (victoria@hotelvictoria.it)
