Last month, I wrote a guest post on Susan Van Allen’s blog: Golden Days in Italy. Susan is the author of two books on Italy: 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go and Letters from Italy: Confessions, Adventures, and Advice. Both are loaded on my Kindle, primed and ready for my upcoming beach trip. In my guest post, I share some suggestions for how to spend one day in Bologna. The post was difficult for me to write: first of all, because I have too many favorite spots in Bologna. Second, the way I would spend a day in Bologna alone is different than the one I would suggest to a friend who has never been to Bologna. First time visitors should try tagliatelle al ragù, a piadina, and/or tortellini in brodo. I tend to eat vegetarian and lighter fare, especially in the hot, summer months. In my post, I tried to offer up a variety of options that included both traditional and contemporary Bolognese experiences. Third, I have a bike, which means I can zip around my favorite places in Bologna with the greatest of ease. I wanted to create an itinerary that was feasible for someone to complete on foot.
