Often neglected in favor of Italy's more famous hotspots, Bologna has plenty to offer, from food to art to hidden secrets. Bologna is known in Italy as "La Dotta, La Rossa, La Grassa," which translates as "the educated, the red, the fat." "Educated" is for the city’s university, the oldest in Europe and home to such intellectual greats as the novelist Umberto Eco. "Red" refers both to the red bricks that most of Bologna’s historic buildings and porticoes are made from, as well as the city’s history of leftist politics. And "fat," of course, is for Bologna’s culinary history, which is based on creamy pasta sauces and rich meat dishes. Bologna’s historic center has been beautifully maintained, its original Roman street plan still discernable today.
