The Cosmopolitan city of Bologna is the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. The fame of more renowned Italian cities, such as Rome or Venice is the reason why Bolbasilica ogna is often bypassed by tourists, something which adds more appeal to the city. Plan your holidays with ebooking and discover the city with the oldest university in the world.
The local cuisine, which goes far beyond the world famous spaghetti Bolognese, is one of the region’s major appeals. But Bologna has a rich historical heritage and its world famed university as well as the huge array of museums, make it one of the cultural centres of Italy. If you are thinking for a place for booking your holidays, Bologna is a great choice.
Once there, there are two monuments which are mandatory stops when visiting Bologna: The Basilica of St. Petronius and The Basilica of St. Stephen. The former, named after the city’s patron saint, is the largest church in Bologna and the fifth largest basilica in the world. Located in Piazza Maggiore, it is one of the most tourist attractions. On the other hand, the Basilica of St. Stephen is located on Piazza St. Stephen and it includes the oldest church in the city.
You must not miss the Fountain of Neptune either. Sculpted by the world famous sculptor Jean Boulogne de Douai, it is located at Piazza Maggiore, as the Basilica of Petronius. We recommend you to visit it at night, when the figure of Neptune and his trident are wonderfully illuminated. Finally, The Two Towers are also a very popular attraction among tourists. Considered to be one of the city’s major landmarks, these towers were built in the 12th century. Located at the end of Via Rizzoli, one of the towers can be climbed, offering stunning views over the city.
