Sights in Bologna

Where a grand past meets fascinating modern life

The urban area of Bologna was already populated 3,000 years ago during the era of the Villanova culture. It has since seen many a ruler come and go. The museums, monuments and churches of Emilia-Romagna’s capital testify to this past. Bologna is also home of the oldest university in the world with its numerous old and new faculties still carrying the spirit of 950 years of science. Art and culture meet glorious shopping roads and delightful trips onto the hills of this multifaceted city.
