    We drove up - not sure we were meant to but it was late in the day. Amazing drive up past the longest portico (in the world?). And views from the top are spectacular.

    Definetely one of the most beautiful and charming places I know, especcially in the evening when people are walking back and forth, either coming back from work, or going places to have a drink, or more just having a walk and enjoying the peacefulness and beauty of the place.

    Climbing a 97m tower is always going to be somewhat arduous but we made it to the top no problem. The wooden stairs are a bit worn but better and wider than a lot of other towers that we've been up. The views from the top are well worth the climb with panoramic views over the city.

    Fascinating history and very atmospheric. The information about the churches is well covered in the guide book (2 euros)

    A small place that costs just a few euros to visit - and is free for U16s. The rooms and corridors are beautiful and give an insight into academic methods of old.

    If you are interested in medicine this is a must to see in Bologna. Part of the Old University which is also very interesting. We went on guided walking tour and visited this place with our guide who was studying at the University. We learnt so much and felt like we had time travelled, learning about past students and anatomy dissections centuries ago.
    The library was worth spending time in as well.

    We took the #20 bus by the Basilica de San Francesco to the Arco Meloncello, where the Portico begins. Although it starts as an incline the pavement is even. The second third is steps which are not pitched very high. I was concerned (63F moderate shape) about the stairs but I had no problem going up or down. I do suggest bringing water if you are doing the walk in summer. We went up to the cupola (5 euros) for the view which was fantastic although the stairway is very narrow, there is a handrail. We were able to return on the bus, which we could pay for on board with our debit cards. Highly recommend!

    (Or maybe that should be ‘the belly’?) It was busy every day and evening we were there and there is loads of choice for places for food. Very pretty lanes too and the fact that it is all pedestrianised made it lovely to wander round.

    Not religious at all, but worth a visit to see the engineering and stone work. Another Italian beautiful cathedral. Worth a visit. There’s a meridian line that’s particularly interesting on the floor of the cathedral. The longest in Europe apparently.

    It absoultely takes your breath away! After a seemingly endless climb, you will get the best view on the city. We visited this site on a tour, and I must say it was one of the highlights for us!

    Although it was a slightly unusual museum it was a wonderful insight into how our forbearers began to get us to where we are today.

    These pioneers laid the foundation of our culture and science - you have to look past the somewhat dated but authentic displays :)

    No information in the guides and this is a must for history lovers. A Biblical group lamenting and made of terracotta. Unique and so emotional. Entrance fee. Unfortunately, museum was closed.
