This is a channel that runs through the medieval city. There's nothing interesting here, but you can look at it if you are nearby.

A strange window and a bridge view to one of the only remaining canals that once supplied water and traffic to Bologna. Worth a few minutes of your precious time to see and understand what was Bologna like in ancient times.

Pretty rad little spot for a cool picture. It's pretty crowded so you'll have to wait in line to get your photo, but it's along he path to the city so it's worth the quick stop.

Finding this, quite literally, hole in the wall is half the fun! Journeying through side streets to find the place where tourists are looking through a hole in the wall was interesting. The view of the canal was itself unexpected. A neat glimpse of this...More

We found the little street that has the Reno channel visible and roof a couple of pictures. If you have 5min to walk there do it!
