Bologna, a must see in Italy. But not only see, somebody can tell you is a must taste immersed in a perfect Italian downtown.
Bologna is famous for being the cradle of the oldest European university, built here around the year 1000, by the famous jurist Irnerio.
Numerous and illustrious students studied in the Alma Mater. They are destined to become immortal celebrities. From here passed: Copernico, Erasmo of Rotterdam, Dante, Petrarca, Pico della Mirandola, and many others.
Particularly famous for its law studies, the University is also known for its faculties of medicine and surgery, engineering and others, which still attract large numbers of students.
Even Federico Barbarossa, aware of the fundamental importance of the structure, protected the place as an independent research and study centre.
Bologna has a characteristic that makes it immediately recognizable. These are the red bricks with which many of its houses are built.
Even the two towers that mark the entrance into the city, built for strategic and defensive reasons, recall the peculiar color.
The red porticoes of Bologna are also famous, as they have a flavour of the past. Walking along these arches is an experience that we recommend to everyone, as well as the opportunity to admire the small shops and shops that arise here. Those who love to walk can not 'miss the opportunity to climb' up to the Church of St. Luke.
