BOLOGNA

Bologna is a historical city. It is the capital and largest city of Emilia-Romagna (a region in northern Italy). Bologna is famed for the oldest university in the Western world, lively student population, exquisite food, typical brick terracotta-roofed architecture and porticos, theatre and nightlife.

Its architecture is noted for its palette of terracotta reds, burnt oranges, and warm yellows, hence the name of Bologna la rossa (Bologna the red). The extensive town center, characterized by miles of attractive covered walkways, known as "porticos," is one of the best-preserved in Europe. Tower of the Asinelli & Garisenda is the main symbols of Bologna. Torre degli Asinelli (built between 1109 and 1119) is 97.20 metres tall (330 feet), with 498 steps and an incline of 1.3 meters (4 feet). Torre dei Garisenda (closed to the public)is 47 m (162 feet) tall and has a lean of over 3m (10 feet). Both were built in the 12th century.

If you have money to spend go to Galleria Cavour, near Via Farini with a lot of chic high fashion shops and trendy outlets. Another shopping street is via San Felice near via Ugo Bassi with a lot of small shops that made artigianal dresses (sugarbabe), artshop (elzapoppin), art galleries and shoes and dresses shop.
