A city famous for its cuisine, Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in the world, founded in 1088.
Attractions like Le Due Torri Torre degli Asinell and Bagno 76 Eden make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Bologna: Maranello (I Love Maranello, Adrenaline & Extreme Tours, &more), Santuario Madonna Della Provvidenza (in Castelfranco Emilia) and Bellaria-Igea Marina (Bagno Renzo & Afrika Beach). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica - Santuario di Santo Stefano, get engrossed in the history at Museo Civico Archeologico, ponder the world of politics at Palazzo Comunale, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica di San Domenico.
