Beautiful Bologna

Bologna, Italy
I've just got back from a wonderful few days in Bologna. I absolutely adore Italy, so I've pulled together my top few things to see and do while you're in the historic capital of the Emilia-Romagna region...

Dinner at Pappagallo - Definitely more of a special occasion kind of place but the menu is the perfect balance of fancy and tasty. Order from their extensive wine list and finish your bottle alfresco as you watch the piazza at night.

It's also worth mentioning another food favourite, which is De Fabio Bros - this one isn't for the faint hearted. A great family run Italian restaurant in the heart of the city. They bring all of the courses directly to the table, where you help yourself to as much or as little of each course as you'd like. Genius! We ended up eating so much during the starter as we were under the impression it was the main course too! The staff are incredibly welcoming and can never do enough to help.

Drinks at Nu Lounge Bar - A really cool, eclectic cocktail bar in the center of Bologna. I didn't get the chance to try the food, but if the drinks are anything to go by I'm sure it'll be great. It had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and some of the most impressive cocktails I've ever seen. I'd definitely recommend trying the Love Potion!

Coffee in the Piazza Maggiore - It's what the Italians do best! We sat for hours watching the world go by while sipping coffee. It costs a little more to sit outside but it's definitely worth it if you're a people watcher like me.

Shopping on Via d’Azeglio - Tipped as the 'meeting point of the city' the Via d'Azeglio is the social heart of the city and the place to head if you're into shopping. The street stretches everything from high street to high end including personal favourites Zara, Gucci and Sephora.

Visit the Fountain of Neptune - Last but not least the Fountain of Neptune, located in the Piazza del Neptune, next to Piazza Maggiore. A life-size bronze statue of the Greek god of freshwater.

Until next time, Beautiful Bologna.
