小鱼儿2015The landmark buildings of the city are the core areas of the city. During the tour, walking is the main area. The whole street retains the original things and state. The building itself is also very distinctive. I like the design inside.
小凌60The classroom is located on a mezzanine platform. The whole classroom has a sacred feeling. This is the earliest anatomy room in the world. They laid a foundation for modern medicine, so I still respect this place.
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.
_We***95According to legend, half of the halls will not be built. I feel that it will be very good if it is completed. I feel that the shape of the front is rough, like a large factory building. The murals here are quite exquisite, and the style of the building is very good.
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.
Bologna is the largest city (and the capital) of the Emilia-Romagna Region in Northern Italy. It is the seventh most populous city in Italy, located in the heart of a metropolitan area (officially recognized by the Italian government as a metropolitan city) of about one million. The first settlements date back to at least 1000 BC. The city has been an urban center, first under the Etruscans (Velzna / Felsina) and the Celts (Bona), then under the Romans (Bononia), then again in the Middle Ages, as a free municipality (for one century it was the fifth largest European city based on population). Home to the oldest university in the world, University of Bologna, founded in 1088, Bologna hosts thousands of students who enrich the social and cultural life of the city. Famous for its towers and lengthy porticoes, Bologna has a well-preserved historical center (one of the largest in Italy) thanks to a careful restoration and conservation policy which began at the end of the 1970s, on the heels of serious damage done by the urban demolition at the end of the 19th century as well as that caused by wars.
An important cultural and artistic center, its importance in terms of landmarks can be attributed to a varied mixture of monuments and architectural examples (medieval towers, antique buildings, churches, the layout of its historical center) as well as works of art which are the result of a first class architectural and artistic history. Bologna is also an important crossroad transportation for the roads and trains of Northern Italy, where many important mechanical, electronic and nutritional industries have their headquarters. According to the most recent data gathered by the European Regional Economic Growth Index (E-REGI) of 2009, Bologna is the first Italian city and the 47th European city in terms of its economic growth rate.
Giardini Margherita is the most popular park in Bologna as well as the largest covering 26 hectares.
It’s quite common for the locals to meet and relax there during the weekends, or enjoy a refreshing drink/ice cream/granita during the summer.
Inaugurated in 1879 as Passeggio Regina Margherita, the park still maintains most of its original layout inspired by the English Romantic parks. While the park was being laid out, an Etruscan burial ground was discovered where the magnificent travertine grave at the side of the central lawn was found.
On the southern side of the pond there is a short open-air stretch of the ancient Savena canal (1176), one of the waterways that once characterized the city.

The Fountain of Neptune, nicknamed “Al Żigànt”, “the giant", in the bolognese dialect by the locals because of Neptune’s size, is located in Bologna in Piazza del Nettuno.
It was build and completed between 1563 and 1565 by the Palermitan architect Tommaso Laureti.
The statue was an early design by Giambologna.
In the centre of the tank of the fountain, there is a base where there are four Nereids holding their breasts, from which jets of water emerge.
The base is decorated with pontifical emblems, ornaments that - connected to four cherubs - hold dolphins (which are allegorical representation of major rivers from the then-known corners of the world: the Ganges, the Nile, the Amazon River, and the Danube.
In the centre of this base raises the majestic figure of the Neptune sculpted by Giambologna's; the statue is a typical expressions of the manneristic theatricality.
The Neptune stretches his left hand in a lordly gesture, appearing to be aiming to placate the waves; this posture is interpreted as symbolic exaltation of the new power of the Pope Pius IV: just as Neptune was the master of the seas, the Pope was the master of Bologna and of the world.
A local anecdote also tells of a particular expedient put in place by Giambologna, who intended to find a way to make Neptune with the larger genitalia, without being discovered and admonished by the Church originally made him censor the statue. The sculptor designed the statue in such a way that from a particular angle the thumb of the outstretched hand of Neptune seems to appear directly from the lower abdomen, suggesting an erect genital.
As proof of it, in the pavement of the square there is a black stone, also called "of shame" placed in a very specific point (at the foot of the entrance staircase of the Salaborsa library).
The fountain is an icon, reflected in symbols, commercials and logos.
The trident inspired the Maserati’s logo.

Over the centuries, particularly between the 12th and the 13th century, Bologna was a city full of towers. Almost all the towers were tall (the highest being 97m), defensive stone towers; the number of towers in the city was very high, possibly over 200.
There are now 25 towers left without counting the hundreds of bell towers in the city.
The Two Towers, “Le due torri”, both of them leaning, are the symbol of Bologna, and the most prominent of Bologna. (Until 1919, there were 5 towers in this square)
The taller one is called the Asinelli while the smaller but more leaning tower is called the Garisenda. Their names derive from the families which are traditionally credited with constructing them between 1109 and 1119.
The Asinelli Tower was used by the scientists Giovanni Battista Riccioli (in 1640) and Giovanni Battista Guglielmini (in the following century) for experiments to study the motion of heavy bodies and the earth rotation. In World War II, between 1943 and 1945, it was used as a sight post: during bombing attacks, four volunteers took post at the top to direct rescue operations to places hit by Allied bombs.
Later, a RAI television relay was installed on top.
Architect Minoru Yamasaki is thought to have been inspired by the Towers when designing the World Trade Center during the 1960s.
The Garisenda Tower today has a height of 48 m with an overhang of 3.2 m. Initially it was approximately 60 m high, but had to be lowered in the 14th century due to a yielding of the ground which left it slanting and dangerous.
It was cited several times by Dante in the Divine Comedy and The Rhymes (a confirmation of his stay in Bologna), and by Goethe in his Italian Journey. The Two Towers have also been the subject of an eponymous poem by Giosuè Carducci as part of the Barbarian Odes. Charles Dickens wrote about the towers in his Pictures from Italy.
You can still visit and climb to the top of the Asinelli Tower.
The University of Bologna, called “Alma mater studiorum - Università di Bologna” or shortened in UNIBO is the oldest university in the world.
Although it existed before its creation in 1088, it is in 1088 that is was structured, hence founded, as an organised guild of students (hence studiorum), creating the modern concept of university and the first place of study to use the term universitas for the corporations of students and masters.
Still to this day, it is one of the leading academic institutions in Italy and Europe. It is one of the most prestigious Italian universities, commonly ranking in the first places of national rankings.
“Via Zamboni” has been made during the 19th century the Main Street for students as they can find many faculties and libraries but also cafes and pubs to enjoy the typical student life (movida).
Many of the buildings are worth visiting and you might find some hidden museums and treasures.
Otherwise, when in Bologna, just take a walk and stroll along the street and enjoy the vibe.

I thought I had seen all the most beautiful cities in Italy, but Bologna touched me with its beauty. This city not far from Florence and Parma is a little jewel. A student city, it is very lively during the day as well as in the evening, except maybe in summer.
There are lots of things to visit starting with the famous leaning towers Asinelli and Garisenda. Don't forget to buy your tickets online.
I really liked to climb on the Asinelli tower to see the city from 360° but also on the terrace of the Basilica of San Petronio which gives you another point of view and especially the one of the leaning towers.
Bologna is recognizable by the red color of the buildings, which brings a lot of charm to the city.
I also visited it at sunrise to see it differently. It was a real pleasure to walk there with no tourist.
Last thing to do before leaving it, go and see the last remaining canals. One of these canals is on the Via Piella. There is a small window that will give you a view of part of the canal. #awesomepic #unforgettableexperiences #travelinspiration #instagramworthydestinations
Bologna in Italy is also one of the most interesting city I have ever been in. The city which very strong in culture offers great variety of amazing food and wine. Take a look around the original architecture design of the city and the tower in the middle of the city is also amazing. Overall, I love staying here. #wintergetaway
#bologna is a city in central #italy and it is famous because nearby there are some speed cars manufacturers. I did not visit it because them but because the historical sights and the architecture. I really enjoyed the old style buildings and also the view from the top of the old tower of Bologna. It really worth a visit.
