Historical Architecture
khccThe city government building used to be a palace, but now it looks like an ancient building with historical significance, and it feels the same as the surrounding buildings. There are also many artworks in the building, but unfortunately the museum upstairs was not open when it arrived.

Square
Cultural Experiencial Area
轻轻的一个蚊Piazza Maggiore is located in the center of Bologna. It was built in 1200. To the north of the square are two medieval palaces built in the early thirteenth century, and to the south is the Basilica of San Pietro, which was built in 1390. , Has not yet been completed. In the center of the square is an open-air cinema, where movies are shown every night (with commercials). Bologna is my favorite Italian city, with simple and elegant architecture, clean and tidy. Here is the first university in Europe-the University of Bologna. Bologna is a wealthy city, and famous car brands such as Ferrari and Maserati were born here.

Best Experience in Bologna

Bologna is the home town of Giorgio Morandi, and you could see his creativity in many high end greyish buildings in the city, absolutely exquisite artworks. One of Europe’s oldest universities, Bologna University is located here; within its walls, you could feel yourself being transported back to the 5th century and its way of life. There is also the 5th century twin towers (Torre Garisenda & Torre degli Asinelli), the landmark of Bologna. From the top of the towers, you could have the full view of the beauty of this antiquated city. The areas around the twin towers are the best places to sample the local way of life. Even today, the city of Bologna still retains its Roman era architectural styles as reflected from the shops, restaurants, and cafeterias and of course the Fountain of Neptune, Palazzo del Podesta and the Basilica di San Petronio.
