Bologna hotels for all tastes
In the window of Tamburini's deli, Bologna, there are great wheels of Parmesan, rich cotechino sausages, handmade tortellini, bottles of aged balsamic, porcini mushroom pastes, Parma hams and even cubes of fried custard (that's right), traditionally eaten with boiled meats here. It's like Antonio Carluccio's fantasy supermarket sweep.
The north-east Italian region of Reggio Emilia is home to all these treats... no wonder its capital is known as 'Bologna la grassa' - which roughly translates as 'Bologna the big porker'.
And this being a university town, one of the oldest in the West, there are plenty of places to eat and drink well for a few euros. Take a seat in one of the osterias tucked under the grand marble colonnades for great, cheap pasta and live music.
As for great hotels in Bologna, whether you're looking to hideaway in the medieval backstreets or for renaissance elegance, we have something to suit every taste. Buon appetito!
