Are you planning to visit Bologna? Maybe you are wondering what to see in the city, which monuments and museums you should visit. The history of Bologna is rooted in a very remote past: the city was built in an area that was populated since the early Iron Age, and its urban centre and hills still preserve traces of the civilisations that lived and flourished there (Etruscans, Celts and Romans). In the Middle Ages the city was a “vertical” masterpiece and a model of living culture: more than 100 towers reached up towards the sky, and the most ancient university in the West was born there.
We have collected some pieces of advice and itineraries that will help you organise your visit in the alleys of the old city centre and the outskirts of Bologna.
