Wise and ancient but also very young: the capital of Emilia Romagna enjoys a double soul, an expression of its absolute veracity, of the good pleasure of life
but also of its noble origins that reminds a rich past, of art, and of centuries-old history.
The learned, the red, the fat: welcome to Bologna
Learned because it is the seat of an ancient university, red for its amaranth-tiled roofs, fat for its succulent cuisine: this is Bologna, a city that will
welcome you with the cheerfulness and benevolence typical of the Emilian people.
The historical centre
Our tour starts from Piazza Maggiore, the heart of the city, located in the middle of the historic centre of Bologna which is one of the
largest in Europe.
The space, conceived since 120 as a town meeting place and meeting point between institutions, trade and spiritual power, has a late mediaeval layout and
numerous historic buildings: the Palazzo del Podestà with its long arcades full of bars and taverns; Palazzo Re Enzo, now
home to major events and demonstrations, which houses a beautiful courtyard with an ancient sandstone well as well as beautiful rooms such as the Sala degli
Atti and Sala Re Enzo; the Palazzo d'Accursio or Comunale, the contemporary seat of the Morandi Museum and open to visitors for its splendid
rooms: the Hercules room, the Town Council room, the Farnese room and chapel.
The square in front of the Basilica of San Petronio majestically dominates, the fifth largest church in the world dedicated to the patron
saint of the city. The unfinished façade is a magnificent example of mediaeval Gothic. Going up to the terrace of the basilica allows you to enjoy an
extraordinary panorama of the city.
A few steps from Piazza Maggiore, you will reach the church of Santa Maria della Vita which houses one of the most beautiful sculptures
in the world: the Compianto, seven terracotta statues of enormous impact, a cry of pain petrified by the art of Niccolò dell 'Arca for the dead Christ.
Nearby, in Piazza del Nettuno, we cannot overlook the sixteenth-century Fountain of Neptune, an iconic symbol of the city of Bologna as
well as the Torre degli Asinelli and the Garisenda, both very old, and built for military functions.
Still visitable, reaching the Torre degli Asinelli is over 97 metres high from through 498 steps that lead to the top. The Garisenda, on the other hand,
is only 48 high but owes its particularity to the slope due to the softness of the land, already famous at the time of Dante who mentioned it in his
At this point you can reach the Archiginnasio, not far away, one of the most important and historic buildings in the city, once home to
one of the longest-running universities in Italy. Upon entering, you will be amazed by the beauty of the courtyard and portico enriched by splendid cross
vaults. Inside you must not skip a visit to the anatomical theatre, the seventeenth-century study room of the medical faculty made entirely of wood.
You will immediately come across the most famous monumental complex in the city: the Church of San Luca, better known as the
Seven Churches. It is a complex of religious buildings, initially erected on a pagan at the behest of Bishop Petronius, who gave life to
an intricate ensemble of splendid and ancient mediaeval churches interconnected with crypts, courtyards, arcades, and cloisters.
The Bolognese arcades
If we have to talk about wonders, Bologna certainly has an impregnable primacy: its arcades. They extend for a total length of 38 km in the
historic centre, such as to become Unesco heritage in 2021.
Born after the year 1000, the arcades offered safe shelter from the weather and the sun, and were an effective solution even from the dirt and sewage present
in the street. Over the centuries, the network of Bolognese arcades has increasingly expanded, with contemporary styles at the time of construction.
In a city so rich in art, museums cannot be missing – e.g., the National Art Gallery, a former Jesuit novitiate, which collects a vast and
precious collection of works of art from 1200, the MAMbo, the museum of modern art in Bologna.
The window of Via Piella
We suggest one more last gem, the Finestrella di Via Piella, a delightful window from which you will have the feeling of being teleported
between the Venetian canals: here in fact a stretch of water forms a channel between the colored buildings, giving life to a picturesque and anomalous
glimpse of the city.
After a well-deserved gastronomic break in one of the many excellent taverns, consider leaving on board one of our cars rented from our offices
in Bologna to discover the ancient villages of the Emilia region, famous all over the world for their architectural and naturalistic beauties.
