Our base for this fascinating Italian short break is the understated yet truly historic city of Bologna. Bologna’s series of atmospheric squares are linked by twisting alleys and tiny streets. You’ll also visit Parma, with its sublime cathedral home to the famed Palazzo della Pilotta, a huge complex of brick buildings, housing works by Correggio among others. And finally, Ravenna is nothing short of a masterpiece with a host of religious buildings, wonderfully adorned with superb early Christian paintings and the world’s finest mosaics. Together with the iconic culinary delights in this region: Parma ham, Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, wild boar and truffles - this relaxing short escorted Tour of Bologna, Parma and Ravenna is a true recipe for success!
