The cityscape of Bologna is enriched by elegant and extensive arcades (or porticos), for which the city is famous. In total, there are some 38 kilometres of arcades in the city’s historical center and over 45 km in the city proper. The arcades make it possible to walk for long distances sheltered from rain, snow, or hot summer sun.
