If you are looking for a 4-star hotel in a strategic position to easily reach Bologna city center, Best Western Plus Tower Hotel Bologna is the perfect solution!

An important crossroads between Northern and Southern Italy, the history of Bologna is connected to the influence of cultures and peoples that have contributed to the city's economic and cultural development over time.

Hundreds of towers give the city its unique appearance. In the past the wealthy families built towers to defend themselves against attacks and robbery from enemies and rivalling families: the Asinelli and Garisenda towers, both leaning, are the main ones still standing.

Moreover, you can't miss a visit to Piazza Maggiore, with its Basilica di San Petronio, the Sala Borsa (the public library) and the famous Nettuno statue inside the Fountain. 

The main symbol of Bologna, that made it famous all over the world, are its medioeval porticoes. Almost 40 kms long, these structures were used by craftsmen because they allowed more natural light, while repairing from the sun or bad weather. The most famous porticoes are the wood portico of Casa Isolani, the one near Palazzo Grassi and Case Reggiani-Seracchioli portico. 

If you love challenges and are the athletic type, you can run through the longest portico in the world, San Luca, that starts from the city and leads to the Sanctuary of Madonna di San Luca. 

When in Bologna, you cannot miss:

Built in the early XII century by the family of the same name, they are now the city's symbols. The two towers are both leaning and dominate the skyline in via Rizzoli. As a reminder of the role in trade during medieval times, the portico at their feet now houses a number of traditional craftsmen's' shops. The long climb up the 497 steps of the Asinelli Tower is a must, as it offers a breathtaking view of the city and the Bologna hills.

The Building was erected in 1562 for the purpose of creating a unified University campus, which had until then been spread out in several buildings. The entire building is heavily decorated with engravings and celebratory monuments of Scholars and thousands of emblems and names of students. The building was home to the University until 1803, when it became the Municipal Library.

The magnificent Anatomical Theatre inside the Archiginnasio Building owes its name to its characteristic amphitheatre shape. Designed in 1673 for anatomy lessons, it is built entirely out of fir wood and decorated with the statues of the twelve renowned doctors and the twenty most famous anatomists of Bologna.

Considered to be the “square of the people of Bologna”, Piazza Maggiore is located in the heart of the city and houses the main buildings of the political and religious powers. With your back to the façade of San Petronio, you face Palazzo del Podestà and Palazzo Re Enzo, with the Voltone del Podestà crossing underneath them. On the left the Palazzo Comunale (Municipal Building) closes off the square, and on the right the Palazzo dei Banchi, from which the most famous portico connects Piazza Maggiore to the Archiginnasio.

Commissioned by the Municipality of Bologna in 1390, the basilica should have been an immense cross with each one of the huge arms overlooking a different square. For economic reasons the project was downsized and only the longest arm was completed. Regardless, the Basilica of San Petronio is still one of the largest churches in the world.

Overlooking the square of the same name, this complex is also known as the “Sette Chiese (Seven Churches)”. In fact, the Basilica consists of a complex and original layout where the various, adjacent sacred buildings aim to replicate the holy sites of Jerusalem. Built on the structure of a temple dedicated to the Goddess Isis, the complex was reduced from seven to four churches during restoration work between the end of the 19th century and the early decades of the 20th century.
