BOLOGNA--Less boozy than a glass of wine, and prepackaged in a unique 10-cl bottle, Campari Soda (with its own nomenclature, "camparisoda") makes a lovely, delicious, and inexpensive aperitivo. Three euros ($3.25) at most bars.
On an earlier trip to Bologna, at the end of 2005, I went in search of full-strength Campari. But the drink itself has changed. They literally took the bugs out in 2006, and the reformulated Campari now tastes (to me, to me) more syrupy and less bitter.
