Australian Winery Regions - Best Regions to Visit on Winery Tours Posts

If there were only one city in Italy (impossible) to advise the foodies of the planet, it would be Bologna (yes). It is true that this is not the first Italian city that we think of when we imagine comfortably installed on a terrace, glass of wine (or beer) in hand, crunching a tooth in a huge pizza crisp or taking a fork of pasta bolognesa (moreover it is not for nothing that they are called “Bolognese”).

Of course if you launch us, we could continue to write whole paragraphs on the sweets of this city, both salty and sweet (well continue reading and you will end up falling over). If the good Italian dishes are not enough to attract you to Bologna, then perhaps the architecture worthy of a museum, one of the oldest universities in Europe, hospitality, culture, bars and the general atmosphere that reigns there will make you falter. So follow us, here are the good plans not to miss in Bologna.

Our 4 favorites in Bologna

If tradition is that we often reserve the best for the end, not this time! As much your gives the best tips and other good addresses from the start, right? Difficult to make a choice, so after many debates and dilemmas, we finally managed to make our top list.

1. Gourmet break at Sorbetteria Castiglione

One thing is certain, you will be spoiled for choice among the many glaciers of the city. But if we had to choose … Impossible not to literally melt in front of one of the ice cream Italian Sorbetteria Castiglione. You may spend a good fifteen minutes trying to decide among the farandole of perfumes on offer (seasonal please). In short, a delight!

2. A coffee as we like it at Fram Café

If just as we like you to taste a good coffee (a true real), there are plenty of good places in Italy. But if we had to choose it would be at Fram café, the coffee is top, the vintage decor, the relaxing atmosphere … A little peace has the corner of a small lane of Bologna. What more ?

3. Paradise for library rats …

This sublime library (open to the public, yes you’ve read correctly) does not remind you of anything? A castle in the middle of a distant forest, a beast … All that all? As a warning, you may spend a few hours in the Biblioteca Comunale Archiginnasio time to admire the collections of books, the details of architecture and simply soak up the place. Good reading !

4. Waking up gently in a greenhouse

What’s better than to wake up gently with a nice homemade breakfast in the heart of a Bologna park? The Greenhouse Park Margherita is a place to test if you explore the city, you will not feel at all in Bologna but rather in the countryside in an arty workshop that serves good coffee and a homemade breakfast to fall. You can also maintain the community garden and buy your fruits, vegetables and other natural ingredients. In short, we love it.

That’s it, you’ve decided to finally visit Budapest ! It will not have escaped you, just like thousands of other gamblers, the Hungarian capital is one of the best European destinations to party . And this, for 3 reasons: the life on the spot does not cost anything, the evenings are more than unbridled and in addition, the city has one of the highest concentrations to the m² of DJs coming from the whole world. The best time to have fun is, unsurprisingly, summer. Yes, how else do you enjoy the rooftop bars and other completely delirious “spa parties”?

At Hostelworld, we love to share good, suddenly, it has put together a small selection of good addresses to go sympatic shaker her booty !

It’s party my kiki!

Embark aboard the Ukrainian cargo ship A38 for a night mixing expo, live concerts and meals … nautical. A true legend in Budapest, this floating dance hall attracts bands and DJs of all kinds, from Bollywood disco to French Touch. In addition to the concert hall, there are 4 other rooms / bars not to be missed: the “bow bar”, the one of the engine room, the rooftop and another terrace at the bow level. If your kiff is more a quiet and cultural evening, I recommend you go for a walk on the side of the gallery of the boat or try the restaurant on the upper deck with a breathtaking view of the Danube .

Delight at the Sziget Festival

festival sziget budapest

Presented as the European alternative to the Burning man, the Sziget Festival , it’s just a non-stop week of music and cultural events not stung by cockchafers. It takes place every August on the island of Obuda on the outskirts of Budapest. This year, we give you an appointment from 09 to 16 August, the prog ‘proves pretty foolish with nothing less than The Chainsmokers, Kasabian, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Major Lazer among others.

There is too little time to live here and so many “Ruin bars”

(Nuttea TMTC)

You may not be familiar with the ruin bar concept, so let me tell you their story. Already, you have to know that the concept is unique to Hungary. Then, fortunately, their little name indicates “bar” because the bizbiz is pretty crazy: mix of bar, coffee, beer garden and nightclub and which are also in completely crazy places: buildings in ruins, remnants of war … These Concept-locations appeared ten years ago and have contributed to the transformation of the historic Jewish quarter of the city into a veritable landmark of international DJs and teuffeurs. In all, there are more than twenty bars, and we made a small selection of our favorite addresses.

We start with Fogas Ház (pictured above), which literally means “The House of the Teeth”. This is a small wink reminding of the past vocation of the building, which was … a dentist’s office in the 1950s! This cheerful mix of nightclub-bobo arts center is located in the district of Akacfa utca and is mainly frequented by locals. If you’ve always wanted to know what a hyster magyar bah looks like … this is the occasion. And chilli on the salami, in addition to being a banker- friendly , Fogas Haz offers bike rentals, sporting moments (football friends!) And a pretty famous pizzeria. Basically and if I summarize, there is no reason that you do not spend the whole night on the spot!

The very first “ruin bar” is called Szimpla Kert  (picture below). It’s just a huge labyrinth of corridors decorated with pretty lights, odd objects and bohemian spirit. So contrary to what the translation of his name suggests, it is not a ‘simple garden’, or else a forest model. Because there is inside a cinema, gardens of course and a super farmers’ market every Sunday!
