Light Bologna dinner after Italian Days Food Tour?

chattys82 | Jul 26, 2012 12:24 PM

Going on the Italian Days Food Tour in Bologna in October. They take you to Parma where you sample parmesan cheese and parma ham, and Modena where you see how balsamic vinegar is made and then of course sample it, too. The tour is from 7 a.m. and you're dropped back off at hotel at 5 p.m. You also have a light lunch sometime in the afternoon that I hear is anything but light - with multiple courses, wine, etc.

I still want to try and maximize the number of meals I eat in Bologna, since I will only be there for 3 days! Are there any recommendations of maybe some lighter meals in the main area? From the reviews, I read you are very full after, but I still want to eat something much later in the evening. I'm staying at Al Cappello Del Rosso Hotel. Also, what time do people eat both lunch and dinner in Bologna (maybe a range of times would be helpful info)?

Thanks! ~ Stacey
