A sleek and convenient hotel in lively Bologna, the gastronomic heart of northern Italy, with dining discount and late check-out
With so much prosecco and pasta to sample across Italy, it's difficult to pinpoint exactly where the country's gastronomic heart lies. Follow your stomach to beautiful Bologna, however, and you’ll find plenty of food for thought as to why it is one of the country’s key foodie contenders, and largely considered within Italy to be the culinary capital. As the home of the bolognese sauce and Mortadella sausage ("baloney"), this is the place you may want to pack your stretchy waistbands for.
Within easy reach of the city’s main square, Piazza Maggiore, and the San Petronio Basilica, NH Bologna de la Gare serves up its cold cuts in contemporary surroundings. Regional flavours top the bill in the Amarcord restaurant, and guest rooms are a mix of old and new with wooden floors and colourful wallpaper. Just a short walk from Bologna Centrale train station this is the perfect base for discovering what La Grassa (“The Fat One”, Bologna's affectionate nickname throughout the rest of Italy) has to offer.
