Bologna, the "Red City" is home to the oldest university in the Western world, "Alma Mater Studiorum", founded in 1088. It is also one of the most pleasant cities I visited in Italy. Its cuisine is simply, heavenly. It is widely known as the Red City because most of its buildings are of a red hue and also its left-leaning political tradition. The city is also full of fabulous monuments and buildings including this Neptune Fountain built in 1563 and Bologna's very own leaning tower- which is taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa and it is still leaning.
