Jasmine and Pasquale - LONDON - UK
The flat is cozy, warm and ideally situated.
We did not visit Bologna we lived here for a week!
 Many thanks to Tiziana and Fausto, who made us feel very welcome

Gavin and Julie - LOS ANGELES - CA - US
Via Inferno has been our home for the last four weeks;
our base-camp for our many excursions to Florence, Venice,
Verona, Rome, Rimini, Modena, and so many other
destinations, as San Remo, Nice and Montecarlo.
Yet, always, via Inferno has been a place we can look forward to returning after a sleepy train ride home.

Visit Italy by train
Italy is smaller than you think: plan daily trips from Bologna to Florence (1 hour), Venice or Milan (1,5 hour), cities of arts of  Emilia Romagna like Ravenna, Parma, Modena, Ferrara (max 1 hour),
Mantova, Verona (2 hours), beautiful landscapes like Cinque Terre and Dolomites.

Dine in the Capital of food and survive to ittagliatelle
  • Don't say Spaghetti Bolognese - Say it like Italians do: Tagliatelle al ragu. The secret? Natural ingredients and no additive, as grandma did.
  • Looking for organic food? In Italy we call it "biologico".
  • The cheapest health food? Italian gelato - ice cream - starts from 1.70 Euros, no artificial flavour added, no cream and fat. Our favourite tastes: Bacio (chocolate and nuts), Nutella, Yogurt alla fragola (strawberry yogurt)

From his Blog from Italy, Alex not only will give you some insight into how Italy works, but also of all that is worthwhile about Italy which, he says,  is a lot

 How? They usually go bike or just walk in a city of less than 400.000 inhabitants.
From our friend Bernardino da Siena a great suggestion for a holiday in Tuscany!

" Hi All! We are an italian family that lives in the very centre of Siena the beautiful medioeval city in the middle of Tuscany. Our home is just behind the magnificent cathedral , 300 meters far from the Campo's square and Is the only one in the old center of Siena that has a big garden with a great view of S. Domenico's church.
We have a cottage in the garden with private access, terrace on the garden , big kitchen, double bedroom and free wifi internet access.
We rent from next september weekly for 700 euros. (We can also provide accomodation for smaller period)
If You are wine enthusiasts I'm a winemaker working in Montalcino's area (The region of Brunello di Montalcino) and I can organize tasting tours of Chianti and Brunello and tasting courses in Siena".
