The Portici of Bologna

The Porticoes of Bologna are an important cultural and architectural heritage of Bologna and represent a symbol of the city. No other city in the world has as many porticoes as Bologna. They cover more than 38 kilometres only in the historic centre. They reach up to 53 kilometres if those outside the mediaeval city walls are also considered.

The carnival of Menton bears some similarities to its cousin from neighbouring Nice: a parade of large heads, confetti streams, flower battles, Mardi Gras celebrations and finally the burning in effigy of “Majesty of the Carnival”.
