Destination overview:

A delightful fusion of history, politics and traditional cuisine, the city of Bologna is arguably one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Situated in the north of the country, it is only in recent years that visitors from outside of Italy have discovered just how much this vibrant city has to offer. Take a flight to Bologna to discover the home to Europe’s largest old town, history is an important part of the overall make-up of Bologna. The famously lopsided twin towers of Asinelli and Garisenda keep an ever-watchful eye over the glorious old town, with the magnificent 15th century Piazza Maggiore taking centre stage. Bologna has gained a number of affectionate monikers over the years; the russet-coloured buildings which typify the city giving rise to the nickname of La Rossa (the Red One). Another famous term for the city is La Grassa (the Fat One), given in honour of its rich historic legacy of producing the finest Italian cuisine. The restaurant menus here are full of tempting local specialities such as tortellini, prosciutto, mortadella and turkey with pecorino cheese. Home to Europe’s oldest university, founded in the year 1088, Bologna has a large student population. As a result, the nightlife scene here is hip and vibrant, the city’s many bars and clubs opening into the early hours of the morning. This concoction of historic legacy and cosmopolitan culture makes Bologna one of Italy’s most absorbing and fascinating cities to visit.
