Bologna, the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, is situated in the north of Italy and is well known for its large number of churches, cathedrals and museums.
Le Due Torri is the most famous historical monument in Bologna. You must climb to the top for a magnificent view of the city. The highest of the two towers is 98 metres high and has almost 500 steps. The archaeological museum, the Basilica, the Cathedral of San Pietro and the Mediaeval and Renaissance Museum are also certainly worth a visit.
Art-lovers must visit the Pinacoteca. This artistic centre of Bologna is known for its collection of masterpieces from different periods. You can take a break from all this beauty on the magnificent Piazza Maggiore, a fascinating square in the centre of Bologna.
