There is no shortage of things to do in Bologna. From strolling through the picturesque porticoes that line the streets to enjoying the stunning panoramic view of the city from the summit of the iconic Asinelli tower or bearing witness to the grandeur of the Piazza Maggiore. Proudly bearing the badge of food capital of Italy, there are endless options in the quest to find the best restaurants in Bologna. But not to miss is the famous Tagliatelle al ragù from Trattoria Anna Maria or a helping of authentic Lasagna from a family-owned trattoria like Ristorante Bolognese followed by a scoop of Crema Mediterranea from gelateria Galliera 49. You’ll also want to explore Quadrilatero, the oldest market in Bologna, and every foodie's dream brimming with fishermen, butchers, "salaroli" and craftsmen. If you’re in search of more unusual things to do in Bologna try looking for the Whispering Corners of Palazzo del Podestà or go in search of the charming 12th century canals still visible today.
