BOLOGNA
Bologna the “Learned”, the “Fat” and the “Red”

Bologna the “Learned”, the “Fat” and the “Red”

Living Place Hotel is situated in Villanova di Castenaso, not far from the centre of Bologna, a city of 500,000 inhabitants with a fascinating and ancient history. Known as “Learned" for the oldest university in the Western world, "Fat" for its rich culinary tradition and culture of good food, and "Red” for the colour of the bricks used to build the towers and palaces. The charm of the historic city has been preserved, full of traces of its glorious past. But at the same time, it offers endless diversions, including food and wine trails, bars and night life, exhibitions, and events and offers related to the very active cultural and artistic scene in the city.

What to See

What to See

For history and architecture lovers, Bologna is full of places to visit. The ideal starting point has to be Piazza Maggiore, the pulsating heart of the city, where you can admire, in one go, the Basilica of St. Petronio, Neptune and his fountain, the wonderful Palazzo Re Enzo, the Palazzo Comunale, also known as the Palazzo d’Accursio, the Palazzo del Podestà and the Palazzo dei Notai.
The Basilica of St. Petronio, dedicated to the patron saint of the city, is one of the largest churches in Europe. Built in the Gothic style, its size is imposing despite never having been completed. Another site not to miss are the Two Towers, built in brick for defensive purposes, called the Torre degli Asinelli and Torre Garisenda, the higher of the two. The complex of the seven churches, with the exceptional Basilica of St. Stephen, is also worth a visit. Lastly, we should mention the spectacular Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca, which dominates the city from the top of the Colle della Guardia.
