Today, I fly to Bologna, the capital of the Italian region of Emilia Romagna. Using the #Blogville apartment in the heart of Bologna as my base, I’ll set out to explore the region’s many cultural, historical and natural attractions… and I’m sure there’ll be lots of awesome foodie experiences in between! Much has already been written about Emilia Romagna – check out the Blogville website for all the gorgeous posts, photos and videos – but I hope to uncover a few more gems (like this hidden canal in Bologna) and experience the region the Velvet way!
I’m really looking forward to exploring the gorgeous city of Bologna, as well as the historic towns of Modena and Ravenna. I’ll also be visiting the region’s famed Motor Valley (where Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati are based) and partying with the locals on the beach in Rimini during the Notte Rosa celebrations (the Italian summer’s New Year’s Eve party along 110km of beaches)!
