bologna la rossa (bologna part 3)

this weekend i went to san marino (so excited to share those photos with you!) but first i have to play catch up with bologna! heather and i climbed torre degli asinelli and saw cute, little and crooked torre degli garisenda right next to it. these photos are by far my favorite.

this city is known as "

bologna la grassa

(the fat, for it's delicious food),

la dotta

(the learned, because it is home to the oldest university in europe),

e

la rossa

(because of all of its red roofs!)"
