Bologna is one of my favourite cities in Italy. It is a university town and has a lively young population. The city looks especially vibrant at night.
Outdoor tables appear in little streets lined with food stalls by day, and they soon fill with people out to have a good time.
Restaurants sit invitingly at the end of alleyways and beckon you in.
The basilica has been recently renovated and shines brightly at night.
Piazza Maggiore never disappoints.
Don’t miss Bolonga on your trip to Italy…and stay for at least one night. The city is easily reached by train. It is on the main line between Milan and Florence.
Italy Magazine is once again running its Blogger Awards for blogs about Italy. I would love it if you could nominate Bagni di Lucca and Beyond.
Last year my other blog Bella Bagni di Lucca won an award and it brought lots of new readers to the blog and more interest in our lovely village.
