Go right to the source of the local delicacies of Emilia Romagna
Fab foodie tours
All the gastronomic choice here in Bologna can be a bit overwhelming to the uninitiated, which is why the tour company Italian Days Food Experience can serve as a great introduction to the scene, with routes in the city and throughout Emilia Romagna that include learning about the production of the raw materials which go into the local cuisine. One very popular tour, for example, takes you to a concern which makes Parmigiano Reggiano; a farmhouse specialising in traditional balsamic vinegar; and a factory which turns out the famed cured prosciutto di Parma. Other options include truffle hunting and cooking classes. A delicious way to get to know the area, for sure! www.ItalianDays.it.
