A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Get out of town with these interesting Bologna side-trips: Florence (Basilica di Santa Croce, Gallerie Degli Uffizi, & more) and Leaning Tower of Pisa (in Pisa). There's still lots to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Torri degli Asinelli e Garisenda, pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa di San Giacomo Maggiore, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica - Santuario di Santo Stefano, and contemplate the long history of Basilica di San Domenico.

To see traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Bologna route planner.
