Bologna, lively historical city in Italy

Updated: Jun 9, 2021

Bologna is a beautiful historical city in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, known for its excellent food, its long history with Etruscan, Celtic and Roman roots, and having had the first university in Europe (1088!). In the mediaeval ages, it was one of the seven most populated cities in Europe.

Bologna is rich in culture and history, it is a student city and it is doing well economically. It is also popular among foreign students who go there to have a great time learning the Italian language.
