Our fall week in Bologna, in the Emilia Romagna region, promises to be a food & culture lovers delight. Bologna is ideal for anyone wanting to learn about real, authentic Bolognese cooking, art and culture. Fondly known as "Bologna La Grassa" or Bologna the Fat, this city is Italy's culinary birthplace.
Emilia Romagna is home to the King of Cheeses - Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Not to mention home to the original stuffed pastas such as Ravioli and Tortelloni. Arrive at your four star accommodations, settle in and unpack and prepare for our welcome celebration dinner. Our home for the week will be a centrally located four star hotel. The week will include private day trips to Ravenna & Ferrara, a visit to factories that produce products such as Parmigiano Cheese and Prosciutto, one private cooking class, as well as a private walking culinary tour where we will visit some of the city's most beloved shops. A private culture walking tour will allow us to get to know our host city. Spend a memorable fall week in Bologna! Enjoy seasonal meals, art, culture and Italy's Dolce Vita!!
