Bologna has joined an European project with the aim of making the city accessible for everyone who has got mobility difficulties or sensory problems like deaf or blind people. Many areas of the city have been defined as usable with paths studied in order to take in consideration the architectural barriers.

The most important architectural attractions are the Cathedral of St. Petronio, which is one of the biggest cathedrals in Europe and the Palace of Archiginnasio, in which you can find Anatomico’s Theater and Legisti’s courtroom, which is the first location of the University of Bologna.
