The structure of a typical Italian meal is similar to anywhere else around the world; it includes breakfast (colazione), lunch (pranzo), a snack (merenda), and dinner (cena).
As soon as you bite into that succulent tortellini, you can tell it is love at first sight. They are a huge part of the Bolognese experience.
Enjoy fresh plump tortellini stuffed with the freshest ingredients and served with a rich and creamy sauce at the local restaurant in Bologna for a delicious mind-blowing treat!
I went into a magical trance and into foodie heaven when I first stepped foot in the food markets of Bologna.
The Archaeological Museum, also known by its former name the Death Hospital, is found at the Galvani Palace.
It has many historic exhibitions featuring archaeological collections of the city of Bologna.
There are over 30 museums in the magical cultural city of Bologna, some are privately owned, some individually standing, while others are in universities and churches.
The St John Church (Holy Crucifix Church) in the Santo Stefano complex was built in the 8th century, although the complex started being built in the 5th century originally by St Petronius.
Lunch is considered the most important meal in Italy. If you are visiting on vacation, be sure to stop by the local trattoria for an authentic Italian dish!
The first actual garden of Bologna is the Parco della Montagnola (Giardini Pubblici Montagnola). It is located in the old town and is rather large relative to the other parks in the region.
You can find the Basilica di San Petronio on the main square of Bologna, the Piazza Maggiore. This historic church is one of the largest churches in the world.
The architecture at the Santo Stefano square is so well thought out! Tourists can explore many churches all at once since they are all connected.
The principal food markets are the Central Market and the Erbe Market. If you are looking for a place to buy delectable, fresh produce and meats, then these are the places to go!
