City Guide: Bologna

     Bologna is known as La Grassa meaning ''The Fat''.

     A nickname, the city earned for its good appetite and passion for yummy cuisine. The first that comes to mind about foods in Bologna is the world famous spaghetti Bolognese. In fact, locals usually miss it for such dishes as mortadella and tortellini served in local restaurants with sweet local wines.

     A cuisine in Bologna goes even far beyond these, but to taste it you need a stay there. Be it a room in cheap hotel in Bologna or in luxury hotel all available at Booked.net. You can check them out with maps, photos and secure forms.

     After you finish with your dining in Bologna, you should get involved with this city deeper to discover there more than tasty cuisine. For example, its medieval cityscape with Renaissance buildings and tiny cobbled streets lined with ornate arcades.

Other attractions include;

- Archaeological Museum, a location for antiquities including relics of Egyptian civilization

- Piazza Maggiore, a pedestrian-only square surrounded by the Basilica of San Petronio, the City Hall Building, the portico dei Banchi and the Palazzo del Podestà

- Via Rizzoli, the main streets of Bologna, but excellent for strolls

- Palazzo Comunale, a city hall with a collection of Renaissance paintings

- Torre degli Asinelli, a main symbol of Bologna

     The origins of Bologna date back to first Etruscans in the area in the 6th century B.C. and later they were replaced by the Romans. In 1088, the university was established in Bologna that makes of the city the oldest University City in Europe. By the 13th century, Bologna exploded with numerous medieval structures and became the second most important city after Rome in the 16th century.

     This is Bologna, a city detained in its past that is still reflected in the cityscape influenced by the famous painters like the Carracci brothers and Guido Reni. Anyway, Bologna is not as reluctant to any change as it is expected to be. For example, the works by Giorgio Morandi, famous painter of the 20th century are exhibited at the Giorgio Morandi Museum in the Town Hall.

     Bologna also wasn't long resistant to a plenty of nightclubs, discos and live music venues which sprang throughout the natty city to reshape it toward youth-oriented metropolis.

     Bologna is up to you whether a frozen in medieval time city or energetic destination, but one point is constant – the city fits best with Booked.net.
