... There is a quaint Bolognian custom that these Cafes/Bars have aperitivi from 7 to 8:30 pm. This means that they lay on free food to people buying drinks.

Love to all, and many thanks for following our travels. Do keep reading ...

A great city though, which we are looking forward to exploring more fully ...

... where it looks like you can reach out and touch the Asinelli tower.

Our other favourite things in Bologna were walking down Via Dell Pratello, with a very unique, funky atmosphere and lots of cool bars (those that were still open!), drinking take away beers with the kids and holidaying uni students in some grotty piazzas, and the best gelato we’ve found outside of Rome so far (still not as good as Gelarmony though).
