Why would you wanna go there? Does your gf study there?
OP here, let's just stick with evaluating Bologna's LMEC program. I am not interested in other programs at the moment even though they may be better.
I've heard good things about the city and also got a decent scholarship.
The city is absolutely awful. Bologna is dirty, filled with beggars, broken glass, dog s**t, and graffiti. In particular around Piazza Verdi. Food is great and cheap, and Italians are very laid back and friendly.
