the provincial capital of Emilia Romagna

The city was characterized in the Middle Ages by many high towers, nearly two hundred pieces and arcades, 40 km of arcades. Nowadays there are about 20 towers left. Towers "Garisenda and Asinelli" are the biggest and remaining towers, which were once used as a watchtower and status symbol of the families Garisenda and Asinelli. Today they symbolize the city of Bologna.
The medieval historic center is one of the largest and best preserved in Europe, full of squares, cafes, theaters and shops. One of the most beautiful squares in the city is Piazza Maggiore with magnificent medieval buildings that adorn this square. Like Palazzo del Podesta, the former palace which has now become the Tourist Office. Or how about Palazzo dei Banchi, Palazzo Poggi (university and museum), Palazzo dei Notai and Palazzo Accursio, town hall, a magnificent example of a nice marriage between the current modernity while retaining the charm at one time. Now houses here: the modern media library Sala Borsa in art nouveau style, and its Roman archaeological sites visible from a modern glass floor. Also the San Petronio Basilica and the Fountain of Neptune can't lack in this list. In addition to art and culture Bologna is also a culinary capital. Many dishes that we know come from here, such as Ragu meat sauce (alla Bolognese), mortadella, tortellini, tagliatelle, lasagne and also are well known fine wines DOC dei Colli Bolognesi. Bologna buzzing in everyday life and in the evening in the many pubs, theaters, galleries, libraries, squares and shops. In the charming small side streets of Piazza Maggiore you will find small shops with typical products and you will find there Il mercato nel "Quadrilateral", this is a lively and picturesque market of the Quadrangle, where old traditions and crafts are still preserved. A visit to the oldest and most renowned chocolate lab and a delicious aperitif in the most ancient enoteca should not be missed.
