Watch our video itineraries as we explore this gourmet city in Italy for two days. We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in Bologna – with the beautiful portico lined sidewalks – we had our best meal ever in the world here. Take the train from Milan and arrive right in downtown Bologna.
Bologna is the lively, historic capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, in northern Italy. Its Piazza Maggiore is a sprawling plaza lined with arched colonnades, cafes and medieval and Renaissance structures such as City Hall, the Fountain of Neptune and the Basilica di San Petronio. Among the city’s many medieval towers are the Two Towers, leaning Asinelli and Garisenda.
