A centre of the Renaissance movement and filled with architectural delights, the city of Bologna is one of Italy's greatest treasures. Often overlooked and in the shadow of Venice and Florence, this city can be a great respite after fighting the crowds of tourists vying for space in the bigger cities. You'll find magnificent sienna-coloured buildings, marbled sidewalks and porticos, not to mention a myriad of restaurants and cafés.

Walk into the old town and you'll find the sweeping Piazza Maggiore and adjoining Piazza del Nettuno, which form the centre of the old town. Located here are some of the city's most gracious medieval and Renaissance buildings.

Driving through the region is recommended, as there is much to see and do. Florence and Venice are only a few hours drive from Bologna. There are also several nearby attractions to add to the appeal of this important Renaissance town.

Bologna is renowned for its fabulous restaurants, serving the very best of Italy's cuisine. Gourmets come here in hordes to sample the cuisine: the pastas (tortellini, tagliatelle and lasagna verde), and the meat and poultry specialities (zampone, veal cutlet bolognese and tender turkey breasts in sauce supreme).

Bologna's commercial power might well be owed to its felicitous location between Florence and Venice. Its university is the oldest in Europe (founded 1088) and has for years been a hub of art and culture. Through the centuries Bologna has been one of Italy's great powers and, in the city today, a discernible economic strength pervades.

Bologna's central location makes it reasonably easy to get to. Bologna is linked to Milan by the A1 Autostrada del Sole. Eurostar trains run from around Italy and buses run regularly from just about everywhere. Bologna's international airport (Guglielmo Marconi) is just northwest of the city.
