... mosaic tiles and lots of little bars and restaurants. All old but mostly well maintained. Main piazza and duomo had medieval look and were huge. Church was designed to be biggest in Europe till Papa stepped in. Taxi to Ducati 20€ for museum tour which had to be booked and was a bit disappointing cause factory closed this week. Lots nice bikes including first model Cicolino (small puppy) 100cc. Lots ...

One big letdown for us was that we were in Bologna in August, which is holiday time for Italians. It doesn’t matter so much in the smaller towns or more touristy areas, but in Bologna, at least half (probably closer to 75%) of the city were away on holidays. ...
