This orthorectified image shows urban areas in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. Visible near the right edge is the city of Bologna, the capital city of the region. The city lies between the Po River and the Apennine Mountains, which are visible in the lower part of the image.

More specifically, Bologna is located in the Padana Plains, at the foot of the Apennines, between the Reno and Savena river valleys. The provincial territory stretches out from the western edge of the Padana Plains on the border with Ferrara to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, ranging from 29 meters above sea level in the suburb of Corticella and 54m downtown to 300 meters above sea level in Sabbiuno and the Colle della Guardia, and 1945 meters above sea level at Corno alle Scale.
