City in 🇮🇹 Italy with a population of around 390 thousand people.

Bologna is a city of contradictions. It’s a university town, yet its streets are filled with ancient churches and towers. It’s a modern city, yet its narrow alleyways and covered markets have changed little over the centuries. It’s a city of art, yet its most famous export is probably Spaghetti Bolognese. Bologna is a city that takes a little getting to know. But once you do, you’ll find a wealth of things to see and do. The city’s main square, Piazza Maggiore, is a good place to start. It’s surrounded by some of Bologna’s most famous buildings, including the Basilica of San Petronio and the Palazzo dei Notai. Nearby is the world’s oldest university, the University of Bologna, founded in 1088.
