轻轻的一个蚊Piazza Maggiore is located in the center of Bologna. It was built in 1200. To the north of the square are two medieval palaces built in the early thirteenth century, and to the south is the Basilica of San Pietro, which was built in 1390. , Has not yet been completed. In the center of the square is an open-air cinema, where movies are shown every night (with commercials). Bologna is my favorite Italian city, with simple and elegant architecture, clean and tidy. Here is the first university in Europe-the University of Bologna. Bologna is a wealthy city, and famous car brands such as Ferrari and Maserati were born here.
享受生活的每一天Palma Cathedral is really beautiful. The unique petal window can project the shape of petals only one day a year. Although it is not very symmetrical, it is as beautiful as the irregular color projection.

It might not have the canals of Venice, the quaint cliffside villages of the Cinque Terre, nor the ancient ruins of Rome, but that certainly hasn’t held Bologna back from being one of Italy’s most unique, beautiful, and underrated cities.
Often overlooked in favour of Italy’s other tourism heavy hitters, Bologna, capital of the northern Emilia Romagna region, is where some of the country’s best food, architecture, and people can be found.
In fact, Bologna’s nicknames sum it up beautifully: La Dotta, or the learned, for its university - Europe’s oldest - and the educated that flock there. La rossa, the red, for its beautiful UNESCO-protected terracotta-hued medieval buildings and porticoes, and progressive left-leaning society. La Grassa (the fat), a nod to its richly delicious standing as Italy’s gastronomic capital.
What’s more, the city remains almost undiscovered by the foreign tourists that flock elsewhere in Italy, which makes for a beautifully authentic, immersive local experience as you wander the streets shoulder to shoulder with locals, not flag-waving tour groups.

Bologna is worth visiting and here are some reasons why. Firstly, Bologna is the gastronomic capital of Italy just as Lyon is in France. In fact, the city is often called The Fat because of its irresistible food specialities (see number 9)! Bologna is also a city of unique historic architecture found in the porticoes (see number 4), beautiful churches and, of course, the Due Torri (see number 1) which dominate the skyline and are the symbol of Bologna.
Bologna is in northern Italy and is the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region. Bologna is accessible by car, train or plane and the international airport is located 6 km from the city. There are buses from the airport to the train station and the commute is approximately 20–30 minutes. From Bologna’s railway station all the major attractions are within 1.5 km. Alternatively, you can take a taxi from the airport to your hotel.

Been Staying at Shelborne for a few years now.
The hotel has a great Vibe soon as you walk in with Grande Lobby.
I had the opportunity to stay in many rooms and all were great, specially the Town houses facing the Pool.
2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms, real spacious. the biggest room I have ever stayed in, in Miami Beach. Which have been a lot of rooms in the last 15 years.
The Hotel as a whole is VERY clean.
The service is great, from Front desk, to Food to Pool staff.
Armando has been a great Host every time, I stay for business or vacation with family. He runs a tight ship.
When it comes to Shelborne, I dont think about where to stay, I alway book my stays there when in Miami Beach.

Walking around Bologna.
Spring is blossoming all around us and hopefully the new season will brighten our future.
Bologna is a gorgeous city. Walk around the city, the parks. Get lost, smell the flowers and replenish your soul.
The Basilica of San Domenico in Bologna this is not too known to tourists, yet it’s one of the richest churches in Bologna in art history.
It was erected by the Dominican Friars as a place to store the remains of San Domenico di Guzman, founder of the order and who arrived in Bologna around 1200. Inside there are priceless works of art by authors such as Guercino, Filippino Lippi and Ludovico Carracci.
In the Chapel of San Domenico stands the ark embellished with sculptures by Michelangelo, Nicola Pisano, Alfonso Lombardi and surmounted by a marble cornice modelled in 1469-73 by Niccolò da Puglia called “dell’Arca”, also author of the Lamentation over the Dead Christ (Compianto sul Cristo Morto) preserved in the church of Santa Maria della Vita.
The masterpiece of Renaissance inlay is the wooden choir of Fra’ Damiano da Bergamo, defined by contemporaries as the eighth wonder of the worldand also admired by emperor Carlo V.
The church also has a bell tower, erected in 1313 in Gothic style and 51 metres high. While the Convent of San Domenico houses a private theological university and the Library with a heritage of 90.000 volumes that span from Dominican philosophy, to Dominican theology, history and spirituality.
Walking around Giardini Margherita is one of the most relaxing things you can do in Bologna, especially during the sunset.
The park is nice and there’s a chalet on the pond where you can have a coffee and relax.
The pond is filled with fish, turtles, ducks and swans. If you can, bring something to feed them (although they never go hungry).
On the hillside of the park, there are a basketball and a volleyball fields, and during spring/summer trampolines and cotton candy!
#beautifulsunsets #travelinspiration #unforgettableexperiences #awesomepic #urbanexplorer #naturalwonders
Giardini Margherita is the most popular park in Bologna as well as the largest covering 26 hectares.
It’s quite common for the locals to meet and relax there during the weekends, or enjoy a refreshing drink/ice cream/granita during the summer.
Inaugurated in 1879 as Passeggio Regina Margherita, the park still maintains most of its original layout inspired by the English Romantic parks. While the park was being laid out, an Etruscan burial ground was discovered where the magnificent travertine grave at the side of the central lawn was found.
On the southern side of the pond there is a short open-air stretch of the ancient Savena canal (1176), one of the waterways that once characterized the city.

The Fountain of Neptune, nicknamed “Al Żigànt”, “the giant", in the bolognese dialect by the locals because of Neptune’s size, is located in Bologna in Piazza del Nettuno.
It was build and completed between 1563 and 1565 by the Palermitan architect Tommaso Laureti.
The statue was an early design by Giambologna.
In the centre of the tank of the fountain, there is a base where there are four Nereids holding their breasts, from which jets of water emerge.
The base is decorated with pontifical emblems, ornaments that - connected to four cherubs - hold dolphins (which are allegorical representation of major rivers from the then-known corners of the world: the Ganges, the Nile, the Amazon River, and the Danube.
In the centre of this base raises the majestic figure of the Neptune sculpted by Giambologna's; the statue is a typical expressions of the manneristic theatricality.
The Neptune stretches his left hand in a lordly gesture, appearing to be aiming to placate the waves; this posture is interpreted as symbolic exaltation of the new power of the Pope Pius IV: just as Neptune was the master of the seas, the Pope was the master of Bologna and of the world.
A local anecdote also tells of a particular expedient put in place by Giambologna, who intended to find a way to make Neptune with the larger genitalia, without being discovered and admonished by the Church originally made him censor the statue. The sculptor designed the statue in such a way that from a particular angle the thumb of the outstretched hand of Neptune seems to appear directly from the lower abdomen, suggesting an erect genital.
As proof of it, in the pavement of the square there is a black stone, also called "of shame" placed in a very specific point (at the foot of the entrance staircase of the Salaborsa library).

Over the centuries, particularly between the 12th and the 13th century, Bologna was a city full of towers. Almost all the towers were tall (the highest being 97m), defensive stone towers; the number of towers in the city was very high, possibly over 200.
There are now 25 towers left without counting the hundreds of bell towers in the city.
The Two Towers, “Le due torri”, both of them leaning, are the symbol of Bologna, and the most prominent of Bologna. (Until 1919, there were 5 towers in this square)
The taller one is called the Asinelli while the smaller but more leaning tower is called the Garisenda. Their names derive from the families which are traditionally credited with constructing them between 1109 and 1119.
The Asinelli Tower was used by the scientists Giovanni Battista Riccioli (in 1640) and Giovanni Battista Guglielmini (in the following century) for experiments to study the motion of heavy bodies and the earth rotation. In World War II, between 1943 and 1945, it was used as a sight post: during bombing attacks, four volunteers took post at the top to direct rescue operations to places hit by Allied bombs.
Later, a RAI television relay was installed on top.
Architect Minoru Yamasaki is thought to have been inspired by the Towers when designing the World Trade Center during the 1960s.
The Garisenda Tower today has a height of 48 m with an overhang of 3.2 m. Initially it was approximately 60 m high, but had to be lowered in the 14th century due to a yielding of the ground which left it slanting and dangerous.
It was cited several times by Dante in the Divine Comedy and The Rhymes (a confirmation of his stay in Bologna), and by Goethe in his Italian Journey. The Two Towers have also been the subject of an eponymous poem by Giosuè Carducci as part of the Barbarian Odes. Charles Dickens wrote about the towers in his Pictures from Italy.
You can still visit and climb to the top of the Asinelli Tower.
