Bathing Beauty Bologna Italy. A great place for street photographers. A very nice city and thanks to Rick Steves, very few American tourists. Yes, ignore Rick Steves. He does not recommend visiting Bologna, I say go there and not only for the Bathing Beauty. While this image is obviously a store mannequin, there are many fine places to see. And for street photography, it is ideal for the reason that street performers abound. It is also a great base for train travel to cities like Florence or day tours to Parma, Rimini or Ferrara.
