Via Clavature, 17/C, 40124 Bologna BO, Italy
What makes a meal great? I like to think it is a combination of atmosphere, company and, of course, the food. Starving for carbs to keep me going for the day full of museum and church hopping. We stopped at an unassuming little restaurant with...

Via delle Belle Arti, 17/A, 40126 Bologna BO, Italy
Bologna is well known for its culinary expertise, and one of the best restaurants in town to taste authentic Bolognese cuisine is at the Trattoria Anna Maria. This little restaurant serves only the best food from the Emilia-Romagna region of...

Bologna, Metropolitan City of Bologna, Italy
Bologna is a fantastic city in Italy, that not everyone has a chance to visit. I was lucky my friend was studying there so I looked at it as a fantastic opportunity to visit! The major landmark in Bologna is the Due Torri or the Two Towers. The...

Bologna, Metropolitan City of Bologna, Italy
The Italian word ciao has crossed borders and is a popular greeting all over the world, so "why shouldnt I use it in Italy?", (even Rick Stevens is using it) you could argue. Youre right, ciao is heard all over Italy, but its used by Italians to...

Bologna, Metropolitan City of Bologna, Italy
November 2011 ::: Meeting Alessandro Martini for the first time at 7.30 in the morning is like having a double espresso, twice in one go. He is as animated and bright as his jacket (in the photos). Only one other guest, an American lady by the...

Via di San Luca, 36, 40135 Bologna BO, Italy
The Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca has a commanding presence in the landscape overlooking Bologna. We arrived knowing that it was connected to town by a 2.5 mile portico some say can be seen from space. We dropped our bags at the hotel,...

Via Caprarie, 7, 40124 Bologna BO, Italy
The Atti boys have been making cakes, pies and even pasta for the people of Bologna since 1880, and they're still going strong. If you're just passing by, get yourself into the store and pick up something delicious to munch on.

Via Santa Caterina, 51, 40123 Bologna BO, Italy
Once step in ask for Signor Daniele, host and owner of this foodie heaven. His home made pasta and Tortellini in Brodo are memorable, and the "Culatecca" at the main wall with different vintages of Parma Culatello it made a memorable place to be....

Via Monte Grappa, 11, 40121 Bologna BO, Italy
When I travel, I visit places only once because I want to try everything. I went to Gelateria Gianni twice during my day and a half in Bologna. The map outside points out that all the ingredients used in their gelato come from the regions known...

Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
I had been skeptical of the Venetian gondola ride, thinking it too touristy and overpriced. Last summer, however, I discovered what is so special about this Venetian tradition. A gondola ride provides a unique view of Venice from the quiet...

Cannaregio, 3932, 30121 Venezia VE, Italy
Hanging out on the vaporetti—Venice's water buses—was one of the highlights of our trip. We hopped on and off them regularly but our favourite time was early evening, when the locals were taking their shopping home and the heat of the day only...

Castello, 1135, 30122 Venezia VE, Italy
We liked this rustic spot near the two main Biennale sites so much we went back twice. We tried simple plates of squid ink pasta and stewed octopus on one day and cold octopus salad and a completely different stewed octopus and squid dish the...

3006 S. POLO, Venezia, VE 30125, 30100 Venezia VE, Italy
It may be one of the fastest growing gelato chains across Italy and greater Europe, but that hasn't seemed to put a dent in how delicious and creamy and always good the gelato is at Grom. As I write this there are three locations in Venice: On the...

Calle Larga dei Bari, 1159, 30135 Santa Croce, Venezia VE, Italy
If you find yourself in Venice's Santa Croce neighborhood, and you're hot, or peckish, or both; try to locate the Alaska Gelateria on Calle Larga dei Bari. It's a quaint little place that serves up super fresh, artisanal scoops; possibly some that...

Salizzada San Lio, 5727, 30122 Castello, Venezia VE, Italy
La Boutique del Gelato in Venice's Castello district is a popular destination with locals and tourists alike. But depending on the time of year, or the person working behind the counter, the service and product can be hit or miss. The gelato is...

Calle dei Fabbri, 929, 30124 S.Marco, Venezia VE, Italy
The venue might be a little garish, and the location is almost always a nightmare to visit in the high season. But this gelateria has its merits. Some of its unusual flavors like Sacher Torte, are major stand outs in the Pantheon of gelato...

Calle de S. Luca, 4598, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
Be picky when in comes to buying pastries and other dainty desserts in Venice. Marchini Time is a small pastry shop in San Marco that is rammed with locals stopping by for a quick coffee and croissant at breakfast. It's also nice to come here for...

Murano, 30141 Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Famous for its long history of handblown glassmaking, Murano sits just a few minutes' ferry ride offshore in the Venetian Lagoon. The main attraction is the Glass Museum (Museo del Vetro), which recounts the history of glass through the centuries,...
