From “la Grassa” (the Fat One) to “la Dotta” (the Learned One) and “la Rossa” (the Red One), Bologna has as many nicknames as it has charms. The epicenter of Italy’s culinary culture, this city is also the seat of the oldest university in the western hemisphere and boasts terracotta-tiled rooftops as far as the eye can see. Today, it also blends the crackling energy of thousands of students with the staid elegance of house-proud locals who keep the city in picture-perfect shape.
