The house of Diva and Michela is truly in the centre of Bologna, round the corner from Piazza Maggiore, right above the old marketplace.

Nearby medieval alleyways and side streets are filled with a hive of activity which, in the evening, turns into alfresco bars serving great local wine. Above all this is our Cesarine’s terrace, a tranquil haven to take the atmosphere below, with the dome of the church of the Vita, the towers of Asinelli and Garisenda, and the famous terracotta roofs all in view - a truly unforgettable panorama.

For Diva e Michela the passion of cooking is a journey of discovery with new dishes and recipes to taste, following tradition as a guide and using local produce of the region.

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.
