Bologna

It is called “the learned” because it holds the record for the oldest university in Europe , where Dante, Petrarch, Pascoli and Pasolini all studied. It is also called “the fat” due to its gluttonous gastronomic tradition , constituted by tortellini in brodo, tagliatelle al ragù, lasagne, mortadella sausage and squacquerone cheese, accompanied by tigelle bread and fried gnocchi, all washed down by a bottle of Pignoletto or Lambrusco. Last but not least, it is called “the red” because of the colour of its roofs and its traditional left-leaning politics.

Bologna is a truly unique city, with an exceptionally rich cultural, artistic and culinary heritage, and a vibrant social calendar throughout the year. It is a Mediaeval city laced with Romantic charm, criss-crossed by more than 40 km of arches and colonnades lining the main thoroughfares, just waiting to be discovered on foot. Lauded by poets and singers, you can admire it from above if you can brave the climb to the top of the Asinelli Tower , which is used as the symbol of the city. You can also lose yourself amid its markets – the largest of which is the Mercato della Piazzola in Montagnola Park – and take a stroll around the monuments of the impressive square that is Piazza Maggiore.

When the sun shines, you can climb onto the saddle of a bicycle or motorbike to savour the spectacle of the green hills surrounding the city, or take a trip outside the city to Faenza, where the ancient craft traditions of pottery are very much alive and kicking.
