As all good days in Bologna should end (or anywhere, for that matter), you’ll join one of our hosts to experience the Italian tradition of aperitivo, the art of enjoying a drink and a few plates of small nibbles as you muse over what was undoubtedly a day well spent. We know it was well spent because, well, you’re in Bologna. Just let us know if your style sounds more like a delicious buffet of Italian morsels and a zesty spritz in a swanky cocktail bar, or you think you feel like more of a relaxed affair where you bring your own nibbles to the table? A cozy indoor bar loved by students and grandparents alike, or an outdoor terrace which sees locals huddling together with their glasses of prosecco, even in winter? If you want to indulge in all manner of tasty bites from a table groaning under the weight of pastas, cured meats and focaccia bread, your host knows just the spot, but if you feel like making your own aperitivo picnic from a nearby deli, there’s one bar which every single Bolognese local will tell you to visit - we’ll leave it up to your host to divulge the details! You could settle in to one bar for a few hours, or flit between two - variety is the spice of life after all. What a dreamy way to end your day.
