I can't remember if I've mentioned this before but my littlest sister is currently living in Italy, Bologna to be exact. She is studying History and Italian and as part of her degree gets to spend a year studying in an Italian university. I can hand on heart say that at twenty there is no way I'd be able to move and study in a different county, especially one where I wasn't 100% fluent in the language so I'm really proud of her. We'd been meaning to take the trip out and visit her for a good six months so finally made some time this Easter to pop over. Bologna is such a beautiful city and one I'd defiantly recommend visiting. I didn't take a bunch of pics as I was mainly just hanging out with my sister and also we were only there for one full day. After that all of us headed to Venice for a couple of days to hang out a bit more in a different city. I'll post separately about that one!
On our full day in Bologna we visited Le Serre Dei Giardini Margherita for a couple of drinks and some lunch. It was so beautiful especially with the Spring weather and they had loads of veggie options too. I think because they serve what they grow in the garden there, in fact I don't think there was actually any meat on the menu. It was all seasonal and delicious! I had a lasagne and Tom and Serin had a breaded tofu dish, I could have eaten them both twice over mmm
If you're visiting the city and you're veggie (or not!) then I'd definitely recommend it. It's right on the edge of these large beautiful gardens where we saw terrapins and lizards and the kids ran around the play park. Such a beautiful spot! My sister says she comes to get a coffee and revise there during the week, I imagine its a brilliant place for people watching.
My little sister is such a good aunty to these kiddos of mine. If only we weren't quite so far away. They love her so much!
Thanks for being our human tripod for this pic sis! ;)
I've included the little video we made of our trip in Italy, it includes footage from our stay in Venice too but I'll be sure to do a separate post on that as well! Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend!
