We have just booked a flight to Bologna at the end of October. We plan to spend 4 or 5 days in Bologna. Can I get some recommendations for:
1. Day trips- Modena, Parma etc...
2. Local mom and pop type place/hidden gems.
3. What might be in season then that is a "don't miss' and where to find it.
Any other info you care to share such as hotels, areas to stay etc...
This is our fourth trip to Italy in as many years but this is the first one that truly focuses on food.
I know there are some trip reports on here about Bologna and the region, I just have'nt read them yet. I wanted to get this out there while I was thinking about it.
