Bologna trip planner
A travel guide to the Italian culinary capital of Bologna
Bologna is a university town, a small city of stone streets and brick buildings rising above arcaded sidewalks bursting with shops. It has museums, churches, crazily tilting medieval towers, lively pubs, and more bookstores per block than just about anywhere else in Italy.
Bologna is also the hub of what is arguably Italy's culinary capital. The surrounding Emilia-Romagna region is home to prosciutto and parmigiano (both from Parma), tortellini, the classic ragù meat sauce (known in Italian as pasta alla bolognese) and, of course mortadella, that pinkish, finely graded lunch meat the world has come to know as bologna (though—outside of Oscar Meyer commercials—it's often misspelled "baloney").
