The Northern Italian City of Bologna

Located in the northern region of Italy, Bologna is the country’s seventh most populous city. Like many cities in Italy, Bologna is a fountain of history and culture. In fact, the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2000. And later became a UNESCO ‘City of Music’ in 2006. So, if there’s one thing that’s for certain, its that Bologna and the Arts seem to go hand in hand.


Bologna offers a musical vitality, fostering genres from jazz to electronic and everything in between. The Teatro Alla Scala, Teatro Comunale di Bologna and Arena del Sole are three of the most frequently used theatres. Often known to host regular live performances and spectacles. Not to mention that the facades of the buildings are an impressive sight in themselves.


And speaking of impressive structures, we of course can’t forget about the many Cathedrals and Basilicas littered throughout the city. After all, like most cities throughout Italy, religion plays a large part in its culture. Our most unmissable sights have to be that of the hilltop Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca, the Basilica di Santo Stefano, and certainly the Cattedrale Metropolitana di San Pietro. The combination of the intricate architecture and stunning interior frescoes and chaplets truly is mesmerizing. But these are just a very select few of the cities spectacular Churches!
