The three hour walk that is described on the map of Bologna that you can get for free at the tourist office at the Piazza Maggiore, takes you there. It's well worth the visit, although the glass floor is so scratched it's hard to see the remains of the old city.

A nice public library with an interesting basement. A few tiles on the ground floor are made of glass to allow one to see some archeological ruins beneath. You're better off going downstairs and pay the paltry entry fee to see the ruins up close. Overall, an ok place to visit - not a "must-see"

Worth going down for a look, especially since the glass floor panels were so dirty u cant see thru them!

I got the impression from some reviews that this was a must-see place, but was rather disappointed. It's more for city-dwellers I should think than visitors. all sorts of libraries - for Bambini, adolescenti etc, and a part glass floor so you can see ancient Bologna underneath, but the facilities are aimed at locals and the coffee-shop I thought not appealing when there's so much else in the city.
