    In August, we were in Bologna. I think it's great that cinema offering an open-air in July and August at the place - it is definitely an experience! A bit too bad I found it anyway, because the cinema building a bit dominated the place. Still worth seeing and having a ticket for the cinema in the evening for sure a highlight!

  • Yes, one of those places with pillars where you can whisper in one corner and it will be heard at one on the opposite side... Place with lots of history.
  • Nice place to chill
  • Lovely building
  • Fantastic palazzo overlooking Piazza Maggiore. The architect is the same man who designed the Kremlin in Moscow. The belfry every year sounds the day of liberation.
