Bologna, Italy is one of my favorite Italian cities. It’s an inspiring place that is often overlooked. Located in Italy’s picturesque Emilia-Romagna region, it’s just 25 minutes by high speed train from Florence. It’s a must-see city for art lovers and gourmets. Here you’ll find plenty of great inexpensive fresh food and a bounty of great art. One of my favorite sights in the city is the Museo Morandi, which houses a large collection dedicated to the inspired still lives of Bolognese artist Giorgio Morandi. The city is also home to one of Italy’s oldest and largest universities, Università di Bologna (UNIBO), and has the undeniable vibe of a student city. Because of its central location between Tuscany and Venice, and the plethora of high speed trains connecting through the city, it also makes a perfect home base from which to explore the region.
