Bologna might call the image of processed meats to mind, but in reality Bologna is a city of industry, culture, education, and food. There are so many reasons to visit this Italian city, it has earned it rank as the #1 most livable city in Italy and we’d like to show you why!
For just a small sample of the things you can see here in Bologna, you could do worse than to start at the University of Bologna, the oldest university in continuous operation in the world, founded in 1088. Wander the Basilica di Santo Stefano, an interlocking series of churches whose architecture contains the multitude of influences that have gripped Bologna. For a wider grasp of Bolognese history, visit the Museo della Storia di Bologna (Museum of the Story of Bologna). Grab a coffee and watch the crowds pass by at the Piazza Maggiore, where the students and business people mingle. And enjoy the view of (and from) the Towers of Bologna, the most iconic structure in the city.
