Love Italian food? Marvel at Italian architecture? Then tuck into the northern city of Bologna, where the red hues of the buildings are almost as dark and inviting as the city's famous Bolognese sauce.
Bologna accommodation is pretty appealing too, with many of the best hotels set in historic buildings...
A marvellous medieval skyline casts shadows on the squares and streets of Bologna, the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region in the north of Italy, where an animated local population – many of whom are students – add vibrancy, fresh attitudes and exuberance to the fascinating fabric of this historical city: a fabric as colourful as the nearby lush green hills; the vivid blue skies above; the greens of old rooftop domes; and the reds, oranges, yellows and browns of Bologna's buildings.
Known as “la rossa”, for the favoured reds of the architecture and left-wing political beliefs, and also “la grassa”, or the fat lady, for reasons that will become apparent when you sample the delicious local cuisine – whatever you call Bologna, getting to know this fair city is easy thanks to friendly locals and easy-going manners.
