Seen as one of the most important buildings in the Italian city of Bologna is the Archiginnasio of Bologna, which is currently used as a library and an anatomical theatre.

The building is grand, it has a two storey arcade with 30 archways and its impressive exterior is matched by its interior.
Situated in the centre of the city, the library and theatre is a short walk away from many other city sights. You can get there by bus, take the 11, 13, 90 or 93 which all stop close by.
