Bologna Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Bologna is a city of art, home to the School of Painting which included the Caracci brothers and Guercini; a city of learning, thanks to its famous university, one of the oldest in Europe; and a city of plenty, with fertile agricultural land and fine gastronomic traditions, which have made the city a temple of Italian cuisine. It is also known as “Bologna the Red”, a name with political connotations which originally referred to the red brick of its buildings, towers and 37km of arcades.
