Bologna - The Capital of La Dolce Vita

Even with Italian high standards, Bologna is noted for la dolce vita . Its university is Italy’s most historical and well regarded; its council is among the country’s most progressive, showering money on a wide range of cultural pursuits; and its cuisine is widely regarded as the finest in Italy. Bologna’s distinctive cafe lined arcades lend the town an aristocratic air that’s hugely appealing.

The foodie scene is alive and well in this city they nickname la grassa (meaning 'the fat' - referring to the good living the city is so well known for) with lively and theatrical markets and tiny delicatessens to keep you busy and hungry!

Bologna is one of our most popular cooking holiday destinations, as a result we know only have 4 holidays left for 2009! Our holidays to Bologna are great for a quick culinary getaway! For just £849 per person you can spend 3 nights/4 days, cooking up a storm in this delightful corner of Italy! Just book yourself into a spa for the week you get back!

I see I miss something by only passing by Bologna in a night train ... Have to come back!

Tuscan Way said...

Pleased to see people getting the same enjoyment out of Tuscany that I do. The landscape is magical, the food beyond description, and the locals are the friendliest on Earth. It really is a place that must be experienced to be understood. In interest of full disclosure, I do offer Tuscan food and wine tours. Next time you are in Tuscany stop on by. Drop me a line at if you have any questions.
