College Tourist City Guide to Bologna, Italy

Culture in Bologna is typically Italian in it’s love of wining and dining. It is the food capital of the country, bringing a lot more to the table than just delicious Bolognese sauce. However, the youthful atmosphere created by the University has made Bologna much more fast-paced than the rest of the country. At the turn of the century, the EU declared it the European capital of culture, in 2006 UNESCO named it the “city of music” and in 2011 Bologna was ranked first in quality of life out of over 100 other Italian cities!
