Bologna is a city in northern Italian Emilia-Romagna Region.

The city itself is not generally on the tourists “to do” list.  Therefore it does not attract the vast crowds of people you would associate with Florence or Rome, however, this does not necessarily mean it is not worth a visit, in fact quite the reverse.

Bologna is a beautiful city with lots of historic attractions of value. The twin towers are the main focal point of the city.  It is also the home of Bolognese and there is an abundance of local foods for you to enjoy.

It is also home to the world’s oldest university and has a very big student population which means there is a wide array of nightlife to sample.

With great rail connections if you get bored of the city you can hop on the train and Parma (home of Parma ham) and Modena  (home of balsamic vinegar) is within easy reach.  Train fares in Italy are generally very reasonable.

    1. Indeed, the only drawback is Italy’s night life is not as good as Spain or England 😀
