Bologna is a city of ancient origins and one in which the arts, history and culture fused and gave rise to a noteworthy architectural complex. The regional capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna is known as The Red, because of the color of its roofs, The Scholar, being home to one of the oldest Italian universities, and The Fat, due to its gastronomic delicacies.
Why visit Bologna? For the characteristic great-arched porticoes which accompany you along the main streets of the city, sheltering you from the elements in the colder seasons and providing cool shade in the hotter months.
In the heart of the city you will find Piazza Maggiore, whose perimeter is delineated by significant architectural works: the Palace of King Enzo, the scenographic Palazzo dei Banchi, the majestic Basilica of San Petronio, the Palace of the Notaries, Palazzo d’Accursio, Palazzo del Podestà, and the famous Neptune Fountain.
