The tourists in Bologna

Great town. It is my favourite Italian town so far. The others prefer Florence to Bologna but not me. I like the wide streets and bigger shops. The people are very chic and stylish and very friendly.

... good dinner, but again quite pricey, especially the wine.

We decided it did not deserve a second drink, and walked onto to nice, little wine bar for a nightcap and a final taste of Bologna. Michael described it as a cross between Siena and Naples. The charm and atmosphere of Siena, combined with the size and frantic pace of Naples.
A great city though, which we are looking forward to exploring more fully ...

... of elegance and character to the city. Most of them are reddish hues of marble and were built in the Middle ages.
We are hoping to visit the Sanctuary of the Madonna Luca tomorrow and the longest portico in the world goes up to it which is 4 kilometres in length. They built it to carry the Madonna's painting up the hill as a pilgrimage since the 12th century and is still done today. Apparently in the old days people ...
