Bologna is ideally located in Italy because of its central location.  It lies north of Florence and Rome, south of Venice, and southeast of Milan.  This makes it a major transport hub for Italy (and for that matter, Europe as well). It's served by a network of high-speed trains and an airport with easy access to most major cities in Europe. 


Bologna is a vibrant and scenic city and home to Europe's oldest university.  Because of its long history, Bologna has a wonderful array of cultural sights, fantastic architecture, and high-quality museums.  Bologna is regarded as Italy's food capital. It is an ideal location to learn about health care and discover all that Italy has to offer.
