National Gallery of Bologna
The source of the Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna’s fine collection came initially from the artworks looted from churches and monasteries by Napoleon on his Italian campaigns, and shipped off to Paris.
Make sure you see the stellar paintings by Giotto, El Greco, Titian and Raphael’s Ecstasy of St Cecilia.
Later highlights include works by Annibale Carracci and Guido Reni.
Buses run to Villa Spada, from where minibuses continue on to the basilica
