Since my husband has already posted pictures of most of the things we saw in Bologna the second day we were here - I will post pictures from the walking tour he bailed on. We went into a couple of places that require tickets so it was worth the exhaustion of all the walking.
We visited the University of Bologna established in 1088 and still in use today. According to one website there is only one older still in use university in the world - the University of Karaouine in Fes, Morocco dating from 859.
Though not one of the most famous churches in Bologna, Santa Maria della Vita contains a set of statues showing the very emotional lamitation of Christ's death by Niccolo dell'Arca. Bologna was not an area for marble, so he sculpted in terracotta.
The last picture is a typical street scene.
