Photos of Bologna

Bologna is a great city to live in. Small enough not to feel overwhelmed, but large enough to offer enough culture and amusement for even Andrea. And of course, having all those bars and restaurants that spill into the outdoors in the summer is wonderful (here is Keiko enjoying her cappucino at the trendiest bar in town).

The two leaning towers and the Neptune fountain are the city's landmarks and I just love the covered sidewalks which make walking around town doable all throughout the year (there are more than 20 miles of porticos throughout the city). The main square, Piazza Maggiore, is a great place to hang out and hosts the fresh food market next door. The third photo above is the entrance to Andrea's office.
