Italy Preview: Bologna!

 

If you’ve been following my Instagram,  you may already have enjoyed a taste of my orange-hued explorations in northern Italy. Though this weekend I’m heading to the coast to hike the seaside route of my dreams, I spent my first few Italian days in “la rossa”: Bologna.
I don’t have my computer and can’t upload photos from my DSLR, but wanted to share some more colorful shots in the meantime until I return stateside next week!

Though the city is historically fascinating, this view was all a country girl like me could ask for!

 
There are so many secret gardens, walled courtyards, and rooftop terraces hidden in every building.

   
 
If I ever felt like grey, wintry New England was depriving me of the warm side of the color spectrum, Bologna has more than cured my deficit.

   
And the street art is plentiful, too!

 
Like this 14th-century gryphon, I’ll no doubt be very cranky and exhausted by the time I return: but I can’t wait to share my travels with all of you!

Have you ever visited Bologna or Italy in general? I’d love to hear any stories or memories you have to share!

  1. The pictures are so beautiful and make me want to go travelling somewhere warm instead of being on a flight to iceland tonight…. Enjoy the rest of your vacation and I hope the weather stays good for your hike πŸ™‚

    • I hope you’ve arrived safely in Iceland and are settling in all right! ❀ Now that I'm back home and landlocked again, both Iceland and Cinque Terre/all seaside, warm places in general sound pretty nice to me.
