Trips to Bologna and its surroundings
Beauties and highlights in the hinterland
The distinctively fascinating hinterland of Bologna features large towns and a whole lot to see. Traces of pre-Roman history collide with aspects of modern life. Imola is particularly known among motor sports fans for its race circuit, yet also features splendid palaces. Dozza with its impressive fortification is located nearby. The biennale wall painting festival turns the small town into an open-air museum. Pontecchio Marconi is home of a grand villa that served as an extended laboratory for experiments by the Italian radio pioneer and physics Nobel laureate Guglielmo Marconi. Those interested in Italy’s Prehistory need to visit the ancient town Marzabotto, site of the best-preserved Etruscan settlement.
