Even with Italian high standards, Bologna is noted for la dolce vita . Its university is Italy’s most historical and well regarded; its council is among the country’s most progressive, showering money on a wide range of cultural pursuits; and its cuisine is widely regarded as the finest in Italy. Bologna’s distinctive cafe lined arcades lend the town an aristocratic air that’s hugely appealing.
