See Basilica di San Petronio, Archiginnasio Palace, the old University of Bologna, Two Towers, a medieval food market, and other city highlights. Stop at the oldest bakery in Bologna to sample a torta di riso (rice cake). Then, continue to the city’s ancient chocolate factory, where the first sfoglia nera was created, and sample its chocolate specialties. Afterward, get a taste of cured meats and cheeses with local breads and wine at a deli. There are two more stops on the sampling feast: a pasta laboratory for homemade egg pasta and a gelato shop. Receive a cookbook with a selection of traditional recipes, and get ready for an afternoon nap.
