Bologna, a historical capital of culture, was founded by the Etruscans in the VI century B.C. Bologna sits in the southern part of the historically and gastronomically famous Po River plain, a natural crossroads in northern Italy. Bologna's location was important not only for the trading of goods but also for the exchanging of ideas and the disseminating of culture. The Università di Bologna, founded in 1088 is the oldest university in the western world.

Bologna is famous for its porticoes. Dating back to the 12th century the porticoes were used to enlarge houses to support the growing University community. Today 350,000 people call home, of which 100,000 are students. Bologna, Italy's culinary capital, is also famous for its food. Among the Bolognese culinary contributions are tortellini, tagliatelle and mortadella. Furthermore, Bologna is surrounded by the famous food/wine regions of Parma, Modena, and Tuscany.

Bologna is very accessible, being served by an international airport and one of the main hubs of the Italian railway system. Within easy access is Florence (1 hour), Milan (1.5 hours), Venice (1.5 hours), Rome (2.4 hours) and the ubiquitous Italian countryside of Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany.
