Archaeology

A representation of Bologna’s archaeological sites from the early Villanovian settlements, to the Etruscan "Felsina", or to the Roman "Bononia". Though sometimes they are not accessible to visitors (for instance the ruins of the Roman Theatre in Via Carbonesi not open to the public), many traces of the ancient Bologna speak of the city’s history through the centuries. A history that is also revealed in important sites located in the surroundings, such as in Marzabotto, Castenaso, Monterenzio, San Lazzaro, Ozzano and in many other places in the province.
