Bologna

 

Bologna is a mid-sized city located in north-central Italy.

It is well-known for its beautiful, well-preserved town center, marked by miles of covered walkways (“porticos”) and an architecture dominate by rich colors — terracotta reds, burnt oranges, and warm yellows.

Bologna is home to the oldest university in the Western world, founded in 1088.

The city is also famous for its cuisine (la cucina Bolognese). A good place to find it is the city’s food district, the Quadrilatero.
