Worth a detour if your in Bolonga but very easy to miss, it looks like a painting.its probably because the window is in the shade but the view is in the sun. Quite stunning actually.

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.

It is very possible not to notice it at all if you don't know it exists. The a.k.a. Little Venice in Bologna is worth a peek if you are passing by but I would not put it on my bucket list. To improve the experience,...More

Definitely stop by here when visiting Bologna and get a view of one of the historic canals through the city. You can also see the canal from across the street, but the window is a nice hidden gem nonetheless. Added bonus: you can combine this...More

The canal is cool to see through the window, though the other side of the street is a much better view. I’m glad we got to see this, but would make this a between stops activity, while walking Bologna- not something to prioritize.

It is a small window to see the small canal in Bologna, it is in the city so your possibility to pass-by it very high if you do check it.

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
