What Can You Do In Bologna?
There is plenty to do and see in Bologna, from the historical towers dotting the cityscape to some of the more modern inclusions that make it a cultural hub.
The Piazza Maggiore is one of the most well-known attractions in Bologna, in part because of its centralized location and in part because of some of the more ornate details on the buildings surrounding it. The Basilica di San Petronio is found here as are a number of other grandiose buildings.
The Archiginnasio, at one time, the main building comprising the University of Bologna complex. It dates all the way back to the 16th century and has numerous historical architectural components reminiscent of Italy during that time. The portico with frescoes on the ceiling is the main attraction here.
If you want to enjoy a bird's eye view of the city, climb the almost 500-step stairway of the Asinelli Tower and enjoy the fruits of your labor. The views of Bologna span 360 degrees and are breathtaking.
To truly soak up the sheer amount of culture found in Bologna, look no further than this grouping of streets that serves as a popular marketplace. The Quadrilatero boasts delis almost bursting with fresh meats and cheeses and vendors selling everything from art to fresh fruits and vegetables.
