Visiting Bologna & Ravenna this month.

Jump to last reply

I'll be flying to Bologna in 3 weeks and plan to do a day trip to Ravenna and another nearby town (need suggestions) by train. In the immediate area, I've only been to Parma, Modena, Mantova and Verona within the last few years. I've never been to Ferrara, but I heard it is more gloomy than vibrant/fun (true/false?). Far from being fluent, I can communicate in Italian, read Italian newspapers and understand TV talk shows on RAI so I hope to enjoy more local places/events where I can find more in depth experience. I'm not too big on indoor museums but am looking for more outdoor places/events/festivals.

Most importantly, it would be great if I can get current info/tips on remarkable FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS from Fodorites.
