Bologna

Bologna

In 2007 I was invited to give a lecture at the University of Bologna. I added a few days to my trip to explore Bologna itself and to visit Florence. I had a great time, although, of course, the weather helped. Bologna is famous for its arcade lined streets. The Asinelli Tower, the highest of the Two Towers, offers amazing views of the city and surrounding landscape. As in any Italian town you can just walk into a church and happen upon some amazing painting or altar piece. I’d love to go back one day, if only to taste more of the delicious gelato for which Bologna is famous.
