  • old building

    Bologna Favorites

    The impressive Porta Saragozza was built in 1860, upon the remains of its medieval precursor. It is located in the most wertern part of the city walls, in the vicinity of Stadio Comunale Renato dall'Arra, which is home of F.C. Bologna. Porta Saragozza was designed by Enrico Brunetti Rodati, the gate is made of two large towers topped with...

  • San Apollinare church

    Ravenna Favorites

    This basilica was built by Theodoric sometime after 500 AD as an Arian cathedral (in the same era as the Arian Baptistery) dedicated to Christ; it was converted into a Catholic church dedicated to St. Martin around 560. The dedication was changed again in the 9th century to St. Apollinare, first bishop of Ravenna, when the saint's relics were...

    Rimini Favorites

    Rimini is one of the most famous seaside resorts in Italy thanks to its 15 km-long sandy beach, over 1,000 hotels. In this area the water is shallow and the ground sandy, so it is nice, agreeable and safe to take a bath, especially for children. Only far out on the open sea, the water can be somewhat deeper, a modest 100 m. I had only half an hour...

  • Churches and Squares

    Bologna Favorites

    The 15th century church of Madonna di Galliera is located in Via Manzoni, very close to Via dell'Indipendenza. This old and beautiful church, which is almost hidden between the medieval houses, is worth of seeing. The church feature a great facade but its beauty is almost invisible because it is covered by atmospheric pollution. This church used to...

  • San Vitale church

    Ravenna Favorites

Nice Italian style old town with central square, other nice places. Tomba di Dante – Dante’s grave. Mausoleo di Teodorico , guess the name says it all, I liked it. Also you can go...

    Rimini Favorites

    Check ITALIA IN MINIATURA in Viserba di Rimini, that shows you Italy's most important architectural treasures only in a very small scale. Or have a great time in AQUAFAN in the nearby Riccione where you can splash around for a whole day. Or take your kids to MIRABILANDIA amusement park (50km up the coast from Rimini, 10 km south of...

    Ravenna Favorites

    The Duomo is in the south of the town and, no surprises here, it's located in Piazza Duomo. It has been described as a Baroque hodgepodge and it certainly offers something different to the Byzantine nature of the town generally. Having said that, when you enter and are confronted by what is a relatively bland interior after you've viewed the...

  • Portici

    Bologna Favorites

    This is one of the typical porticoes of Bologna, which have a total length of around 40 Km. Originally, the porticos were made of wood which later on had been replaced with brick. Palazzo Isolani and Palazzo Grassi are typical existing examples of building that underwent enlargement. Porticoes dominating in every street in downtown and if streched...

  • Mosaics

    Ravenna Favorites

    Purely by chance we happened to arrive in Ravenna at the same time their first mosaic festival was on. Purely by chance (not really, I stick my head into old churches all the time) I walked into this old building and lo, there was a mosaic exhibition. Better still, it was free. Of course, these were not the ancient mosaics that Ravenna has become...

  • Piazza Maggiore

    Bologna Favorites

    Piazza Maggiore represents the heart of the town; its ancient buildings and glorious history make the square one of the greatest throughout Italy. It is the best possible starting point for exploring the old core of Bologna. I still remember well my first visit to Bologna, which was long ago, and the sensation I felt when getting on this square. So...

  • Mausoleum Galla Placida

    Ravenna Favorites

    Mausoleum di Galla Placida, San Vitale, San Apollinere in Classe and Nuovo. Watching a 'horse-whipping to music' contest in the main square one evening! And sitting outside the cafe's all afternoon sipping wine or fresh peach juice cocktails.

  • Piazza Nettuno

    Bologna Favorites

    Piazza del Nettuno is situated right next to Piazza Maggiore and it is the most vivid square in the city always crowded with locals and tourists. It is probably the best known meeting point in Bologna and resting post for visitors after long strollings around. The square is completely open in direction of Piazza Maggiore and opposite of it to Via...

  • Excursions and map

    Bologna Favorites

    In some cities, you will find big charts with city maps. In some, orientation is easy, some cites will provide you with free maps. But none of the sentences is true with Bologna. The old town center is very large with a lot of smaller streets. That means that you will need a city map, if you don't want to get lost. I did not found a free city map,...

  • Towers

    Bologna Favorites

    Bologna is called "La Turrita", which means packed with towers, because of its countless towers. Only fewer than 20 can still be seen today and among them Torre Asinelli and Tore Garisenda are the most famous and considered to be the emblems of the town of Bologna. Between the 12th and the 13th centuries the number of towers in the city was very...
