Bologna Italy;

Our first day in Bologna Italy, and we find the streets busy, many of the streets closed for a festival, bands and buskers performing everywhere and tents up in Piazza Maggore giving away and selling samples of their Mortadella.

San Petronio is the patron saint of the city and the two towers are one of the Bologna’s most famous landmarks. The skyline of  Bologna is distinctive with about 20 of the medieval towers remaining, power symbols belonging to the richest families. It must have been like the Manhattan of the middle ages! The twin towers here have become the symbol of the city.

I did participate in the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk, one of two or three here in the city of Bologna, and these are just two of the many images taken during the day.
