The University of Bologna Reviews
The greatest university in Italy! Dec 27, 2009
I was lucky enough to study at the oldest University in Italy and also the world! It is unlike any other and scattered throughout the city itself. It seems to intertwine with the city and has become the beating heart of Bologna.
As you wander around the University you can view a wide demographic of the Italian youth culture. Renowned for it's foreign community and rebellious tendencies, a walk around this zone can be quite an experience. You can hear the operatic music spilling into the streets or gaze at the punks with their beasts meandering about aimlessly.
The various University building often have delightful courtyards that contain an array of fine architecture and artwork.
It is the perfect place to escape the touristy dominance of your Italian trip and finally appreciate a moment of true Italian life.
