Bologna might not be your first pick for a city trip to Italy. Though, we are sure you will be surprised by the character and the diversity of this city. If you have the time we suggest you to climb to the top of Torre Asinelli, the tower built in the 11th century with 498 steps a good calorie burner and allowing you a great view over the red roofs of Bologna and the surrounding green hills. Another interesting site in the city is the Archiginnasio, the first seat of the University of Bologna, the oldest university of the Western world, founded in 1088. While you are in Bologna we also recommend you to have a taste of the real local culture, exploring the speciality of Tortellini. Try the sage and butter tortelloni, tagliatelle al ragù, mortadella, crescentine with cold cuts and soft cheese like stracchino and squaquerone, all to be washed down with the local white wine Pignoletto or red Lambrusco.
