Top 5 Attractions in Bologna
The Food - The food is perhaps the most internationally recognized aspect of Emilia-Romagna. The region has made so many contributions to the international food scene and is considered by many italians (if you are not italian you probably know that it is difficult for italians to agree on anything) the food capital of Italy. Parma has many great hams, most notably Parma Ham and not forgetting Parmigiano Reggiano. From Modena we have Balsamic Vinegar. And from Bologna we have tortellini, tagliatelle alla bolognese (Spag Bol), lasagna and Mortadella (Bologna). There are many other regional specialities but these are the ones most likely to be recognized abroad. This abundance of quality food has probably had an effect on the way of life of the people in the region.
