Bologna ©
A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Get some cultural insight at Basilica - Santuario di Santo Stefano and Basilica di San Petronio. Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna and Bologna Fotografata. Tre Secoli di Sguardi will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Bologna: Padua (Incantesimi di Alberto & Basilica di Sant’Antonio). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Piazza Maggiore, appreciate the extensive heritage of Strada Maggiore, pause for some serene contemplation at Santuario di Madonna di San Luca, and take an in-depth tour of Museo Civico Medievale.
