Turin or Bologna?

catsluvcofffee | Apr 27, 2009 06:13 AM

I will be in Italy for 2 weeks and going from Rome(3n) to Tuscany(4n) to Venice(3n) and finally departing in Milan. I am really in a dilemma whether I should spend the remaining 2 nights in Bologna or Turin.

While Turin is really out of the way, 5 hours away from Venice, I really really would like to sample the gianduja and visit Eataly. I also read alot about the exceptional food in Piemonte region.

Bologna is along the way from Florence to Venice and I have heard lots of Parma/Modena/Bologna (cheese, giusti, lasagna etc). I love pork btw too!

Which area would give me a more unforgettable gastronomic experience? Or should I simply cut out the Venice leg and visit both regions?

Thank you! I will be grateful for any answers!
