The old towers, symbol of Bologna: Garisenda and Asinelli (98m, the highest masonry construction in the Middle Ages). Founded by the Etruscans who called it “Felsina”, during the Roman period it was known as “Bononia”; it later became a free city and, subsequently, a papal one.
Bologna is the seat of the oldest University in Europe and is actually Italy’s gastronomic capital, famous worldwide for the quality of life and the civic virtues of its inhabitants. Bologna has one of the best preserved historical centers in Europe; a single monument consisting in squares, towers, churches and buildings interwoven in a network of connecting porticos (about 37Km).
Bologna historical center is dominated by the moles of the old towers and is rich in churches and beautiful buildings that reveal the economic and social importance of this city in the past. Infact the urban layout of the historical center is still the Medieval one, with the defensive walls of the XIV century and its 12 gates.
Arcades are another typical element of this city: over 40Km of arcades, from the wooden ones of the Romanesque buildings to the Gothic ones (XIV-XV century), from those of the Renaissance and Baroque period to the most picturesque of the popular houses.
Bologna offers an architectural anthology of great effect! Bologna also has the largest portico in Italy, composed by 666 arches, climbing to the Guardia hill for about 3,5Km and reaching the Sanctuary of Madonna di San Luca.
The beating heart of the city, Piazza Maggiore (or Piazza Grande as the Bolognese call it and Lucio Dalla sang it) is the center of civil and religious life in Bologna.
Basilica di San Petronio
The Basilica of San Petronio is the most important and imposing church in Bologna as well as being the fifth largest church in the world. The construction work on the Basilica began in 1390 but went on for centuries. To make room for this temple, symbol of the city’s civic pride, the demolition of towers, private homes and eight churches was necessary.
La Torre degli Asinelli
The towers of Bologna are one of the distinctive features of the city. Of the many towers that were built between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, today less than twenty remain. These structures had both military and noble functions: they gave prestige to the family who ordered their construction.
The National Art Gallery of Bologna houses one of the most important Italian museum collections. The works shown here retrace the entire Emilian and Italian artistic process from the 13th to the early 19th century. There are works by Raffaello, Carracci, Reni, Perugino, Parmigianino, Tintoretto, Vasari, Guercino and many others.
I Canali di Bologna
Perhaps few know it, but Bologna has always been a city of water, a small Venice that is now largely hidden. The most suggestive glimpse of this unusual Bologna is discovered by opening a small window located in Via Piella. Here, as in a vision, the gaze opens onto the Moline canal, used for centuries to feed the water mills with which wheat was worked.
The Archiginnasio is the most beautiful palace in Bologna and certainly one of the most beautiful in Italy. Usually the hurried tourist passes in front of the entrance door, throwing only a distracted glance at the central portico.
