We spent some time in Bologna as part of our summer holiday. It is a beautiful city with numerous churches and museums as well as good food and shopping. The porticoes are magnificent and make walking round the city a pleasant experience in the hot sun. We were amazed by the height of the twin towers, even more so when we saw a model in one of the museums of the town in the Middle Ages when there were hundreds of them and every house seemed to have a tower. The churches were most impressive with so many different styles and decoration. I was also fascinated by the reliquaries containing the relics of various saints.
