It may not be as popular as Florence or Venice, but Bologna is a city that should not be missed! Like most Italian cities, Bologna is a top spot for great food and some even claim that is Italy’s culinary capital! Bologna offers every type of pork product imaginable, lasagna, tortellini and of course spaghetti Bolognese. Travel to nearby Modena to taste balsamic vinegar in its birthplace.
Food may be a priority when visiting Bologna, however the city also has one of the largest and best preserved historic centers among Italian cities with some great sights to check out. Stop by Piazza Nettuno to see the fountain of Neptune, visit the famous Lamborghini Museum, explore University Quarter, home to the oldest university in the Western world or simply walk around the city to see the beautiful terracotta-roofed architecture and porticos.
