All, there are four of us traveling through northern Italy in the middle of October. We are flying in and out of Bologna. Our route will take us from Rimini to Mantova to Monforte De Alba to Vernazza then back to Bologna. I am currently researching places to eat. We will have a car and are looking for all types of places. While we can not splurge for every meal, we do not mind spending it for a memorable meal.
My request - are there certain places near that route that are " have to go here" places.
Thank you in advance.
