Heart of Italian Cuisine

A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Venture out of the city with trips to Florence (Florence Academy of Fine Arts, Gallerie Degli Uffizi, &more). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Le Due Torri Torre degli Asinell, contemplate the long history of Basilica di San Domenico, and pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa di San Giacomo Maggiore.
