I would highly recommend a visit to this little anatomy theatre, which will give you some idea of life as an 19th century medical student. Aside from that, the woodwork is amazing, a real work of art in itself.

Beautiful building, the true heart of Bologna University, the oldest in Europe. A must see in this beautiful city.

A beautiful courtyard and walls covered with crests and heraldic symbols cannot prepare you for the delights of this palace. The highlight is the rebuilt Anatomical Theatre coupled with the glimpse of university library. At almost a km long, the book stacks stretch as far as the eye can see.

Fabulous place to visit. Rich in history, art and architecture. The anatomy room is a must to see. The wood carvings are of high quality. Also close your eyes and imagine that you follow the first human anatomy class 3 centuries ago.. The libary is another must do! Sid down between all these historic books in law, medicine, history, ..

It was a thrill to see the 500 year old building. The anatomic theater saw many important medical discoveries. The library is not to be missed.
