2 - 3 days in Italy: Torino or Napoli? Bologna??

Hello Italy CHers!

I wanted to ask you to help me decide where to go on my 2 - 3 day trip to Italy later this month. I will be spending time in Berlin before and in Paris afterwards and wanted to get down to Italy to get my Italian food fix.

I've previously been to Rome, Siena, Florence, Montalcino, Spoleto, and the Cinque Terre. I am in search of great food, primarily, before being a tourist. However, it wouldn't hurt if the surroundings were beautiful and there were fun things to do. I will NOT be driving as I am a little worried about driving in Italy alone, so places easily accessible by public transport would be the best. As you can infer from the previous sentence, I will be traveling alone. I would love to find some great pasta and pizza, great gelato (I went to Crispino in Rome and SO wish I'd known about Giolitti then....), and great Italian pastries on top of everything else Italy's food has to offer. The two cities I was really considering were Torino and Napoli, but I was also thinking of Bologna. Any other suggestions you all have would be most welcome. And if you could give me a sense of what kinds of food each city does fantastically, that would also be greatly appreciated and very helpful.

Thank you so much!! I really appreciate you taking the time to help me plan this special trip!
