Terracotta roofs of red and orange shades make up the colourful city of Bologna, one of Italy’s true hidden gems. Located in the Emilia-Romagna district in the north of the country, Bologna is famous for its cuisine and being the birthplace of Bolognese sauce.
Piazza Maggiore is Bologna’s main plaza where you can enjoy shopping in boutique stores, rummaging through book shops and sipping coffee al fresco at one of the many outdoor cafes. One of the biggest and oldest squares in Italy, it is surrounded by medieval buildings like the Palazzo del Podesta and the giant Basilica of San Petronio.
For the best views of Bologna, head up to the top of Asinelli Tower. Built in the 12th century, Bologna’s largest tower is taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. You can climb the 498 steps in this medieval structure and look out across the beautiful Emilia Romagna.
