Bologna is the capital of Emilia-Romagna, famous for its historical palazzos, the “Due Torri” and for being home to one of Europe’s oldest universities.

During your city break in Bologna you should visit Piazza Maggiore, which was built in the 13th century, walk up and down via Indipendenza, Bologna’s most frequented street, packed with restaurants and gelaterias and walk under the city’s characteristic “porticos”. Sala Borsa, Bologna’s public library, whose glass floors reveal ancient Etruscan ruins, the Basilica of San Petronio, a gothic masterpiece, and Le Due Torri Garisenda and Asinelli, a vestige of Bologna’s medieval beginnings, are definitely worth a visit. Climb the winding staircase of the Asinelli Tower and marvel at the splendid city view.
