A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ferrara (Centro Storico Ferrara, Palazzo Schifanoia (Palazzo della Gioia), & more), Museo Ferrari (in Maranello) and Modena (MEF-Museo Enzo Ferrari, Acetaia Giuseppe Giusti, & more). And it doesn't end there: take in panoramic vistas at Torri degli Asinelli e Garisenda, get advice or help at Palazzo Comunale, contemplate the long history of Basilica di San Petronio, and make a trip to Piazza Maggiore.
