Bologna - the Food Capital of Italy!

Bologna is one of Italy's most iconic cities for food, art, and architecture, yet it is not often visited by mass tourism.

It is home to the world's oldest university, the tallest tower in Italy, and it is the birthplace of Bolognese Sauce - shall we call it Ragu? Sauce? Gravy? Whatever you call it, it originated here, and not a single Italian will tell you it can be better anywhere else. It is the birthplace of Tortellini, Tagliatelle, Ravioli, and its surrounding area exclusively produces Reggiano Parmiggiano cheese, Parma Prosciutto, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, and the "Motor Valley", home to Ferrari and Lamborghini!

Bologna is considered a major food capital in Italy... for Italians! It boasts a rich and diverse culinary history. It goes far beyond it's namesake pasta sauce and Mortadella. Ask any Italian what the most important thing to do in Bologna is, and they will all say EAT!
