Bologna is a city with elegance and one beautifully colonnaded medieval grid, so get your comfy shoes on and get walking. A city which magnetically pulls you towards the historical center, exploring the colourful side streets which all lead to cafes, restaurants and shops.
Book a ticket at the 1763 theatre which has welcomed some of the world's greatest composers, including Rossini, Verdi and Wagner. If you are a motor head, then visits to the Lamborghini, Ferrari and Ducati factories are a must.
Why not taste historical ice-cream flavours and create your own gelato, at the new ice cream museum. Food lovers, explore the vinegars of Modena, the hams of Parma, parmesan cheese or even an authentic cooking class.
