Where I've Been Down Arrow

Weekend In Bologna #tmBologna

I am currently in Bologna staying at the Blogville apartment in the "centro storico" part of town, surrounded by historial buildings and typically Italian arcades and alleyways. Frankie's update due to an earthquake in the area: as the bird flies blog - earthquake update Bologna is often referred to as the home of "The Fat" and "The Learned" because of its legacy of famous local delicacies and the fact that it boasts the oldest university in the world. I can already hazard a guess which group I'll fall into after my trip! I've been to Italy many times before but never explored this part of the country so I'm really looking forward to getting to know Bologna better over the weekend. When: Saturday 19th May - Sunday 20th May
