The Porticoes of Bologna: World Heritage Site

An important recognition has brightened the summer of 2021 throughout the Emilia Romagna region.

UNESCO has confirmed the uniqueness of the arcades of Bologna, architectural structures that cross the city for 62 km, 40 of which in the old town centre, declaring them a World Heritage Site.

Born in the Middle Ages as building abuses in order to acquire living space, they are now meeting points, alternative pedestrian routes, protection from bad weather.

It is said, in fact, that a true bolognese is able to cross the city from one side to the other on a rainy day without getting wet!

They shelter from rain and snow but they also shelter from the sun!

They work as wonderful unusual routes for our guides during our summer visits in the beautiful city of Bologna.
