Charm, atmosphere, history, architecture, culture and food—that's what we'll find on this new holiday. We'll start in Padua with its canals, porticoed streets, daily markets, busy piazzas and university atmosphere. Enjoy a visit to Verona, one of the prettiest small cities in Italy, and nearby Castello Bevilacqua—for a delightful wine tasting—and an excursion to Lake Garda. Next we'll stay in lively Bologna, with its perfectly preserved medieval center and miles of arcaded streets overhung with arched colonnades. This handsome, red-bricked city is home to Europe's oldest university and is, many claim, Italy's gastronomic capital. How seriously does Bologna take its food? The chamber of commerce preserves centuries-old recipes to continue the tradition of the best mortadella, tortellini and, of course, Bolognese sauce. Bologna is also one of the best places to sample the cheeses, cured hams and vinegars that originate in the area, many of which have been famous for centuries. Visit Ferrara—one of Italy's best kept secrets, Ravenna—with its astonishing Byzantine mosaics, and Parma—recently named Unesco Creative City for Gastronomy!
