Best Time To Visit
Apr - Sep
The locals like to say that a Bolognese innkeeper caught a glimpse of Venus in her bedroom and dashed to his kitchen to create a dish inspired by her beauty, in the process contributing tortellini in brodo to the world. We're not sure how accurate that story is, but Bologna - the food capital of Italy, which is seriously saying something - is surely the best place to learn how to make it, along with rich ragùs, carnival sfrappole (sweet fried pastries), and all manner of other delectable dishes.
