We finally left Venice and arrived at Bologna. This pace is everything I would imagine Italy to be. Friendly locals, great food, cars, architecture, and more.
One thing we noticed here are the doors in the buildings.. They are huge and elaborate

On our first day here we stumbled upon a food market. Everything looked amazing, local, and half the price of US.

After that we went to a place where they make a real balsamic vinegar. I had no idea that the one we get at stores is such crap compared to the real thing. It takes at least 12 years to produce.
