GOURMET AND CHIC AUTUMN: TRUFFLES AND SHOPPING IN EMILIA ROMAGNA AND SAN MARINO

Summer is over, alas, but autumn is a season full of colours and flavours that we at SM Events are particularly fond of: the grape harvest and the new wine, the gathering of chestnuts and mushrooms in colourful woods… and let’s not forget its majesty, the precious white truffle!

We have therefore thought of a special tour for you, combining flavours, art and shopping!!

DAY 1: BOLOGNA, VISIT TO THE FICO FOOD PARK AND ADRIATIC RIVIERA

Arrival in Bologna, capital of the Emilia Romagna region, which in Italy is nicknamed “Bologna la grassa” (Bologna the fat one), for its thousand-year-old gastronomic tradition.
You will visit FICO, the first “agri-food park” dedicated to the promotion of Italian culinary heritage. Inside the park, you will have the opportunity to discover dozens of culinary specialities. Discover them as well as taste and buy them. Not forgetting to see how they are made.
You can participate in a culinary workshop to learn how to prepare pasta and export this knowledge to your country.
