3 DAYS IN BOLOGNA FROM APRIL 26, 2019
Bologna is a city I’m totally in love with. Sono innamorata di Bologna!
I lived there the first 3 years of my life and my Mum always giggles when she reminds me of how I grew up eating tortelli (that’s how they call ravioli in Bologna) and tortellini every day, and that she and the nanny used to have to feed me together because I was too fast for just one person with a tortellino on her fork. In fact, I would loudly protest if another one wasn’t there for me already, PRONTO! I can easily say I haven’t changed much since then. ?
My love for this wonderful city isn’t just due to the AMAZING food it offers. I just realised how many people have no idea of how beautiful she is (yes, Bologna is a Lady!). A few days ago somebody told me he thought Bologna was just an industrial city, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Bologna is a true jewel with her rich architectural treasures, from beautiful Medieval buildings to ancient palaces and towers, breathtaking churches, plus museums, art collections, quiet and luscious parks and a lot more. And the Bolognesi are laid back, kind and with a great sense of humour.
So this beauty is definitely worth a visit!
And then, there’s her food! If you love food like I do, then Bologna is paradise.
The little markets, the fresh pasta shops where you can see busy sfogline – the fantastic pasta ladies typical of Bologna – make their tagliatelle and tortellini faster than light, the ancient botteghe where they sell beautifully aged Parmigiano and incredibly tasty salumi (cured meats) plus the newest Eataly – the biggest one in the world with its 100.000 square meters and 48 restaurants! – all make of Bologna a dream destination for foodies.
That’s why Style in Travel had the brilliant idea of organizing a culinary holiday in this amazing city with/for me!
Join me in the discovery of foodie paradise Bologna!
We fly directly to Bologna and spend 3 great days together in a beautiful boutique hotel. This trip includes one cooking lesson and excursions to an organic Parmesan cheese producer, an aceto balsamico tradizionale producer and Fico Eataly!
