PIAZZA MAGGIORE Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore began as the “platea communis”, the place where people gathered and the market was held. It was one of the most important urban projects in Medieval Bologna, built to give prominence to the seat of city government and create a place for the market
THE 2 TOWERS Both of them leaning, are the symbol of the city and the most prominent of the Towers of Bologna. They are located at the intersection of the roads that lead to the five gates of the old ring wall (mura dei torresotti). The taller one is called the Asinelli while the smaller but more leaning tower is called the Garisenda. Their names derive from the families which are traditionally credited with having constructed the towers between 1109 and 1119.
THE ROMAN RUINS OF SALABORSA WHEN THE ROMANS DESIGNED THE city of Bologna in the 2nd and 3rd century BC, they really built it to last. And last it did: Excavation of the historic center of Bologna in the 1990s uncovered the two main streets built during the Roman Empire, still intact beneath the gorgeous Salaborsa Library in the city’s most popular piazza.
At the end of the tour you will take a walk back to your hotel or else hang out in the city center
