Urban Rafting on the Canals of Bologna

How cool is it that Bologna is restoring its canals? Did you even know that there are canals in Bologna? Not on the order of Venice — Bologna’s water comes from rivers, not the sea –but the effect is enchanting nonetheless. The canals were built between the 12th and 16th centuries, and five remain. The largest, the Navile, once had its own port (1) and linked Bologna with the Po River.

As you can see in the above video, you can go rafting on them!

The current plan, announced last year, is to expose one section of underground canal and part of a Roman bridge. More may come. This article details the restoration plans.

Of course, Bologna is included in several Tour Italy Now itineraries, like the 8 Day Dolce Vita Tour.
