... 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. The Cafe Zamboni has the best spread according to the travel bible Trip advisor. We had a G & T each and also had a full meal. Not a bad deal for 8 Euro a head.
Home and Bed. Long drive to Baleggio on Lake Como tomorrow. Gonna try to had an early start, not bloody likely!
... and one of the staff had spent time in Dublin at Blackrock College, so spoke great English with an Oirish accent. Well, an Italian one anyway! The really cute thing was the Nativity Scene (Presep as they are called here) where all the figures were fashioned with wine corks and caps.

... one that told us about the buffets that many restaurants have. For the price of one drink, you can eat all you want between about 5 -7 pm. We did that one night at his recommended place and the food was great.
Bologna is not on the big tourist map, but that's part of the charm. If you're a foodie at all, then you have to give this place a visit. You won't lose any weight here, but you'll be damn happy you came.
