Basilica di San Petronino is a good place to begin.Originally intended to be larger than St. Peter’s in Rome, the church was never finished, but is still impressively grand. Side chapels are each the size of a small church, and on the floor of the nave a meridian line acts as an astronomical sundial. In the small museum look for the drawings for completing the half-finished façade; numbers 10-12 were submitted by Andrea Palladio.
Le Due Torri: Tall towers once crowned many of the city’s the palaces, but only two remain, the Asinelli and Garisenda, standing side by side and leaning at alarming angles that rival the Tower of Pisa. Climb the taller Asinella’s interior stairways for stunning views of the city.
Visit the Basilica San Dominico. Saint Dominic died in the Bologna convent of the order he founded, and is buried here. Among the city’s most revered treasures, his tomb is carved in marble by artists that include Pisano and Michelangelo. Don’t miss the outstanding wood inlay work in the choir.
