Bologna, off the beaten track for many tourists, and so easily overlooked for Italy. It has skyrocketed to my favorite Italian city ahead of Rome or Florence. It is the city of porticos and stunning architecture, while its medieval offerings, art & artifacts are not as obvious and well know, they are equally delightful and far more accessible. What else is great, the people, they aren’t over run with dealing with the constant flow of tourists, they find us foreigners interesting and are only too keen to ensure you have a good time and get to see the best the town has to offer. Of course the food is fantastic too, but that is a given for where it is located in the heart of Italy’s food production region. GO!
