Bologna, soon

Jump to last reply

I will be based in Bologna for 8 days in Late December/earlyJanuary and would love to hear your recommendations. I posted earlier www.fodors.com/community/europe/winter-in-bologna-venice-and-rome.cfm and got some good tips from Sandralist, dfourh and leely2. Also LowCountryIslander's trip report is terrific and I've picked up other tips from the archives, but if anyone has anything fresh to add, I'm listening.

Since my original post I've cut out the three nights in Rome, (and changed my hotel in Bologna) though I'm still going to Venice for four nights. A few years ago I went to Modena, Castelvetro and Vignola, and was enchanted by the region. This seems like a good opportunity, and Bologna is a great train hub, making day trips easy.

I plan to go to Florence, where I've been a few times but NEED to go to the Uffizzi. I'm also thinking about Ravenna, Ferrara, Faenza and Parma, though maybe not all four. I think four day trips total will be enough. That will still give me three full days to putter around Bologna. I will be spending a lot of time at the food markets!

Restaurants I've noted as appealing are Gianni, Sergehi, and dal Biassanot, I have several others too, but if you have a favorite, I'd love to hear it.

I'll be staying at the Hotel Novecento.
