A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Castello di Verrazzano and Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bagno Bambu and Le Mura. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bologna: Castello di Uzzano (in Greve in Chianti), Castello Estense (in Ferrara) and Florence (Ponte Vecchio, The Baptistery of St. John, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica - Santuario di Santo Stefano and do a tasting at Castello del Trebbio.

To find maps, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read Bologna trip planning website .
