You have to get to the top of the leaning medieval Asinelli Tower to see the true red-rooftop grandeur of Bologna, one of the most important Italian cities. The historic city core here is truly spectacular reaching as far as the eyes can see across the ochre-colored Emilia-Romagna terrain. Bologna is an essential Italian destination. It boasts the oldest university in the world, its cuisine is among the most well-known in Italy and abroad, its sights are the masterpieces of art. Apart from the iconic leaning Two Towers, give yourself some time to wander around the expansive Old Town of Bolognia stopping by the elaborate cathedral facades, marveling at the beauty of countless palazzos of the past, getting into a loophole of the local tastes at the cafes and restaurants.
