Welcome is Bologna

Promenade In the Land of Taste

University town, hospitality centre, but especially gastronomical capital: Bologna’s reputation for gourmet eating began in the university colleges as early as medieval times and has never stopped since, reaching the modern era and remaining unbeatable to the very day. The same kind of epicurean delight that was tasted in the ancient taverns is still enjoyed nowadays. Many promenades wander through the hidden pockets of the city’s culinary secrets: markets, museums, festivals that pass on and renovate the traditional Bolognese recipes. Yes, because eating well has always been a trait of Bolognese people, thanks to the abundance and authenticity of the products coming from the fertile fields and hillsides surrounding the city as well as the convivial nature of its citizens.
