Imagine Bologna in 1500 AD with medieval towers, porticos, and Renaissance-period palaces.

Entering Giancarlo's house is a close revival of those times with his home in an impressive 16th-century palace, in the heart of the ancient city, elevated by its high ceilings, original floors, and antique furniture.

As a winemaker and passionate traveler, Giancarlo guides guests through the traditions of ancient Bolognese cuisine which he has mastered thanks to his passion for local recipes; “taking the concept of food from a mere necessity to a thoughtful art".

Le Cesarine offers bespoke gastronomic experiences; to taste traditional Italian food in good company and idyllic locations: historic buildings, antique villas, houses secluded by nature, terraces with breathtaking views. Le Cesarine’s hand-selected locations are some of the most beautiful private homes in all of Italy.

If you are passionate to explore the authentic flavours of traditional Italian cuisine and dine in elegant homes with local experts, this is the experience for you.
