an amusement park for foodies who love Italian food

It's a huge space outside the city center of Bologna that brings together food and wine from all over Italy.
There are meat, pasta or pizza restaurants, shopping, kiosks with street food, like arrosticini from Abruzzo (bite size crispy juicy grilled lamb on a stick) Fontanafredda Enoteca that serves all types of Italian wines by the glass, culinary workshops on gelato, pasta making or truffle tasting, multimedia centers/mini museums called giostre that exhibit concepts about mother earth, a high end restaurant, Cinque, from michelin starred chef Enrico Bartolini, outdoor gardens, a book shop and at the cash registers as you exit a post office that will mail all your purchases home.


We will meet in the morning (I suggest 10am) in Bologna at main train station to then take the bus to Eataly World outside the city center.
Tour the location while shopping and sampling food
Enter any of the 6 giostre or multimedia centers/mini museums
Attend a workshop for kids or adults (needs to be planned ahead to coincide with workshop times)
Have lunch at any of the various places
End location: Back at the Bologna main train station.
