Calling all food lovers – northern Italian city of Bologna has just been voted the food capital of the world. It also means that us Maltese aren’t that far away from this cuisine haven! 

Despite the likes of Paris, New York and Hong Kong vying for the top spot with all their gastronomic blends and culinary experimentations, it was this northern Italian city which came out on top.

Bologna is the largest metropolis of the Emilia-Romagna region and is offering up more than just agù alla bolognese. These regions are responsible for balsamic vinegar, mortadella, parmesan cheese and parma ham. 

It is also reportedly where lasagne and tortellini sunken in broth were first created. But Bologna is boasting more than just food origin stories as it has many food hubs and centres to munch down in. 

Michelin star restaurants and local icons populate the city which give the already medieval piazza feel a tasty sensation. The city reportedly gets over 1.5 million visitors every year and for us Maltese it’s just a short flight away!

Anyone attending a 1 to 2 hour lecture will end up paying €2.50, whereas those who have a 3 to 4 hour stay at the campus will pay up to €4.50. The price for 13 to 24 hours or for an additional day is set at €12. 

Before this, users could park their car in the facility underground parking for a flat €2 fee. Parkers can also obtain two hours of free parking if they purchase items from outlets within Campus Hub. 

Meanwhile, students pay KSU a flat fee of €3.50 to obtain a parking permit valid for an entire year. The new tariffs saw many students taking to social media to lament about the new system given the rising cost of living, seeing this as unnecessarily expensive.
