Roadtrippin' + Bologna Adventures

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Hey hey, y'all! :) As of right now, I am packing to come back home! Blog posts have been late due to wifi not always being available at hotels/coffee shops/what have you, so Italy-related stuff will be going up over the next few days, along with other fun posts I've been wanting to share with you.

So, without further's what we did in Bologna!

June 14, 2014

So, at this point, we were en route to Venice...or just to our hotel, which happened to be 20 minutes from the boat that would take us there.

On our way, we decided to make a stop in Bologna. This stop wasn't on our original itinerary, but our tour guide suggested it. Once we all decided to go, we parked our bus in Bologna - also called "Bologna Rossa" because of its red bricks - for adventures.

I LOVE that city. It was much less tourist-y than the cities we'd visited thus far, and it just made me happy in general.

We visited two churches, ate at a cafe (where I had lasagna), and did some shopping.

I felt I could really explore Bologna. Landmarks there were easy to get to if you had a map. Also, the city itself was gorgeous. Shops were housed under ornate porte-cocheres (arches and all!), and the entire town just had that authentic Italian feel. :)

Next stop, Venice!
