Calling all book-lovers to the city which encloses the oldest university in the world (1088, which, according to our calculations, is quite some time ago).
Join one of our book-mad local Bologna hosts and discover why the city’s nickname, la dotta (the learned one), extends far beyond its academic past.
Among the locals you will also find many writers, lecturers, musicians, film-makers and artists, all of whom are dedicated to and passionate about their city’s culture.
Follow your host as you explore the independent bookstores and spectacular libraries together, truly immersing yourself in a world of words, knowledge and intrigue.
The city’s main library is built on an archaeological site - ask them to fill you in on all the details as you sleuth into the past.

Ah, there really is something to be found in the hushed world of books, archives and remembrance, isn’t there?
