|New Addiction: Tagliere Misto (Tamburini)|
Per usual, the itinerary revolved around where to eat the next meal. And making the most of Bologna's central location! We had a day in Venice together, enjoying a delicious appetizer at Bancogiro near the Rialto fish market and an awful scammed plate of calamari fritti at hotel restaurant near the stazione. This is why I find venice hard to be one of my favorites. Food is pricey, bad food is pricey, and it's not easy to stumble upon gems that you can later rave about. It's actually impossible. You have to go to a top notch top price place if you want to eat well in Venice an sometimes even that can disappoint! Viva Bologna!
Jung made day trips to Modena, and Torino without me. I went to Florence with him, hitting my favorite spots and never missing the climb to San Miniato in Monte.

|L'ultima cena, Al Voltone|
BO concluded the foodgasm with my new all time favorite Al Voltone, that I discovered with my mom at Thanksgiving and where I am now a frequent customer :) Tagliere misto, crescentine, tigelle, ravioli e vino. The perfect fulfilling end to a week in Italy!
