About Your Trip

In Italy, Bologna is known as La Grassa ('the Fat One') for its obsession with food and the richness of its signature dishes. Oven-baked lasagne; tagliatelle (any other pasta shape would be considered blasphemous) with ragu Bolognese; mortadella ham – the list is long and meaty. On this four-day getaway, you’ll be permitted – nay, encouraged – to indulge in all of it, with a gourmet city tour stuffed with tastings, a pasta cooking class, and a day exploring the wider Emilia-Romagna region, including stops at a Parmesan cheese dairy, Parma, and Piacenza.

        Accommodation

        Art Hotel Orologio (or similar four-star hotel)

        Location-wise, this boutique hotel can’t be beat. Its shuttered windows and wrought iron balconies open onto views of the Piazza Maggiore and the monumental Basilica di San Petronio. Rooms are eclectic, yet tastefully decorated, each one exhibiting a different twist on classic Italian style, with bold wallpaper, antique furniture and marble-clad bathrooms.
