Drive straight from Ravenna to Bologna town center and walk to the monumental heart of Bologna, Piazza Maggiore. Around this square are Bologna’s chief sights: impressive medieval buildings, such as the Palazzo del Podestá, the Palazzo Comunale and in the adjoining Piazza del Nettuno, the Palace of King Enzo, built in 1244. Here you will also admire the Neptune Fountain, the masterpiece by sculptor Giambologna. The most impressive building in the square is the Basilica of San Petronio. One of the largest basilicas in Christendom and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in Italy built between the 14th and 17th centuries. The wide interior features important works of art by several renowned artists.
Do not miss the fascinating sundial on the nave floor. Continuing along Via Archiginnasio, you will see the harmonious palace that once served as a university campus. From here you will proceed to one of the most typical features of Bologna, the Leaning Towers, which became to symbolize the city.
Some free time will be allowed for shopping in the city center, before reaching a local restaurant for a typical “Bolognese” lunch. In the early afternoon, re-join your coach and drive back to Ravenna.
