Certainly it is part of the most beautiful cities in Italy, not only for what citizens and tourists see in the artistic and architectural works that make Bologna unique, there is also a hidden side that perhaps not everyone knows.
It is the one that keeps under our feet and that nobody could imagine, that is the preserves of Valverde, better known as Bagni di Mario.
They are an evocative system of water collection dating back to the sixteenth century, with tunnels with a pointed arch, where you can admire the Renaissance decorations on the walls of the great octagonal hall and you can peek and explore its fascinating passages.
To be able to visit I Bagni di Mario it is necessary to pay a contribution of 10 euros in addition to the cost of the ticket which includes the full rate of 5 euros, the reduced fee of 3 euros.
They are located in Via Bagni di Mario 10, easily reachable by the Tper bus line 29.
