Bologna Piazza Maggiore

star-5
618 Reviews

Bologna’s beating heart is Piazza Maggiore, in the city’s old center. A classic example of Renaissance town planning, it is one of the most graceful public squares in Italy.

The pedestrianised square is surrounded by the Basilica di San Petronio, the Palazzo Communale (city hall), palatial public buildings and Bologna’s trademark covered walkways ringed by arches.

Sit at an outdoor cafe to enjoy people watching in the sunshine during the day, and visit in the early evening to see the beautifully floodlit Fountain of Neptune, sculpted in 1566.

Red for the colors of the bricks with which the towers and palaces were built and for the political alignment of the inhabitants and for the car and engine houses that are located between Modena and Bologna. Dotta because it has the oldest university in the world. Cradle of culture. Fat for food (tortellini, lasagna, mortadella) and for the rounded shapes of the Bolognese girls. A three-day guided tour with guide and guide to discover the secrets of Bologna and its surroundings. A journey for everyone, a 360 ° view of the capital of Emilia thanks to our certified guides and escorts.
