The arcaded streets (Portici) of the historical center still preserved a medieval aspect characterized by the leaning Asinelli and Garisenda towers, both built in 1109/19. Many medieval palaces are in this area of the city. Comfortable ramps of access allow the entrance at “the Basilica of san Petronio”, the Cathedral of Bologna, and at “the Palazzo dell’Archiginnasio”, site of the most antique University of the occidental world. Right now, it is one of the biggest Italian Municipal libraries.
