A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Get out of town with these interesting Bologna side-trips: Castello Estense (in Ferrara) and Modena (Acetaia Villa San Donnino & Acetaia Giuseppe Giusti). There's lots more to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Torri degli Asinelli e Garisenda, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica - Santuario di Santo Stefano, don't miss a visit to Piazza Maggiore, and partake in some friendly competition at Secret Zone.
