Bologna, the city of porticoes is a magical place that still maintains traces of the Roman Empire and was built during medieval times and it is certainly worth a visit.
Bologna has plenty to offer when it comes to opportunities to have fun and learn about the culture of the place. The Garisenda and Asinelli towers, the Fountain of Neptune in Piazza Maggiore, the Mercato Antico and Via Indipendenza are just some of the attractions on offer in the heart of Bologna, which offers a cultural experience befitting a city with such a rich and vibrant history.
But there’s more to Bologna than its historic centre. The Via degli Dei is one of the most popular routes to explore for people who come to Bologna looking for a regenerative experience that brings them into contact with nature. Dating back to the Etruscan era, the route is now designed to start in Bologna, before moving on to the arches of San Luca and finally arriving in Tuscany via the Passo della Futa. The experience allows visitors to admire the beauty of Bologna, sample some traditional food and wine from the Emilia-Romagna area and soak up the gorgeous landscape that surrounds the city. If you’re planning on exploring the Via degli Dei, you can organise your stay in Bologna on the basis of the route and to accommodate any other needs you may have.
Furthermore, Fico Bologna is Italy’s biggest exhibition of organic products and crops from Eataly. With over 20,000 sqm of farm and factory space, Fico Bologna offers visitors educational activities and events that shine a light on the culinary traditions of Italy and - more specifically - Bologna.
