A two or three-night stay in beautiful Bologna, with breakfast and flights included

Bologna is Italy's gastronomic capital, and Best Western City Hotel is set just 10 minutes from its centre, making it an excellent base from which to explore this foodie destination. Outside, the well kept gardens offer a tranquil slice of al fresco in which to enjoy a coffee or cocktail, whilst inside decor adopts a traditional vibe. You can start your days here taking your time over the bursting buffet breakfast, before heading out to discover this too-often unsung hero of northern Italy.

Bologna is famous for its fabulous foods, including world-over favourites such as Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Balsamic vinegar and, of course, fresh pasta. So why not spend your days tasting your way around the tavernas, delis and cafés. The city is also known for its unusual set of medieval towers, two of which remain to punctuate the terracotta skyline, whilst is huge Gothic church, San Petronio Basilica, boasts no less than 22 chapels, and is the largest brick-built church in the world.
