What travelers say:

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.
