I was taught that the oldest by far was Al-Qarawiyyin University in Fas, Morocco, which was founded by Fatima Al-Fihri in 859. According to Wikipedia it is the oldest degree-awarding academic institution. The University of Bologna is the oldest European-style university, as clarified by this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_oldest_universities_in_continuous_operation. So I believe using the term 'oldest' here is a bit unfair.

I'm not sure but I remember reading in the news that Venice did actually put a limit to the number of tourists, at least in some areas

Just a grammar note regarding that clue: it should either be 'has considered' or 'has been considering' capping the number of tourists.

I'm italian but I did the most errors possible to show myself how much I hate what this country has become the only ones I chose to do right were the artistic ones and Trento (which would be, btw, much better if it was in modern day Austria), speaking of Austria,Marie Therese of Austria once said "the Italians are an ungovernable people, even if we offer them privileges" that explains everything, of course, not all italians are like this, but (sadly) the majority is...

i think he is talking about the recent elections held in Italy on march 4th 2018, and subtly disagreeing with the majority of voters who chose either a populist party (5stars movement) or a racist/neo fascist party (Lega). Anyway i found my hometown, my birthplace AND my favourite city in this quiz so YAY!
