Bologna is beautiful illuminated and decorated, we drink hot wine and hot chocolate,  (so thick that you need a spoon) and it´s getting cold, but we still sit outside in a sunny spot for the late morning Cappuccino. The city is more than busy, Christmas shopping is obligatory, also the meal after shopping, you hardly find a table in one of the restaurants in the historic center of Bologna.

foodie tour bologna, tortellini in brodo

The famous dish “Tortellini in brodo” is the typical antipasti for Christmas day and the days before, all family members get a call to help rolling the Tortellini, so the family comes together, they chat, drink Sangiovese (local red wine) and roll.
