The hotel is a nice business hotel. Well located but difficult to locate by GPS as it is on the opposite side of a major highway. Friendly helpful staff.

Walked up yo main square and cathedral and back thru labyrinth of lane ways with covered footpaths ...

The last time I was in Bologna was in 2009, with Karen when we were celebrating my 50th birthday. At that stage, I wasn't terribly excited about the city, but Karen loved it, especially the university culture and the food - one of the town's nicknames is Le Grasse (the fat one) because of its food culture and legacy. Ragù (bolognaise sauce) was invented here, and apparently the locals get quite offended if you call it spag bol !! Garth had it for dinner last ...
Then we entered a small alcove caretaken by what looked like a 14th century man. On the walls was a display of the layout of the front face of this church, but it looked different. Again Womby and Goldy quietly debate what this meant, each one thinking they were smarter than the other and new more. Until we read that the powers that be over time couldn't agree o n how they wanted their church to be finished, so it was never finished. Ahhhhhhhh, research can be ...
