People claim to come here for study, politics or quirky medieval architecture. Secretly, it's for Italy's best pasta. Bologna is self-described as 'la dotta, la grassa e la rossa' (the learned, the fat and the red). The city claims to have laid the intellectual foundations of Italy (it founded Europe's first university), it is universally praised as the country's gourmet capital (its offerings go way beyond the meaty bolognese pasta sauce), and it's the nation's centre of left-wing politics (the communist party has governed local politics for most of the post WWII years). And if the city was located almost anywhere else in the world, its architecture and cultural history would gain greater attention - it suffers in comparison to its close neighbors Florence, Venice and Milan, but few places wouldn't. This trail attempts to capture that essence. It could be done as walk in a few hours to orientate yourself around the city, or better enjoyed over two or three days while taking your time.

Amazing. The characteristic arcades are majestic and unforgettable. Many restaurants to stop at for some great food too.
