Bologna is home to one of the best cuisines in Italy—where favorites like tortellini and were created—but it can be a challenge for travelers to find down-to-earth meals in the restaurant circuit.  With this tour, a guide takes you to at least half a dozen restaurants and cafes serving dishes away from the tourists. It’s an immersion in local gastronomy with pasta, salumi, pizza, wine, and gelato.

* A traveler said: "No question, this was the highlight of our trip and the activity that is squarely at the top of my list to repeat on our next visit. Marzia and Sisto are the most warm and wonderful hosts. First, we toured the historic market and then went to their home for a cooking lesson and dinner. We started with a sparkling red wine and had mortadella and prosciutto that Marzia and Sisto purchased from the market during the tour. Delicious!! The fresh pasta lesson was fun and a real eye-opener about what it takes to make fresh pasta—- it’s more work than we imagined and we have a real appreciation now for this craft. We also made tiramisu with Marzia and it was the best I’ve ever tasted. I cannot adequately express what a lovely evening this was and how lucky we are to spend an evening with this couple in their home. An amazing and unforgettable time!"
