Bologna is a city made for bicycle: Flat and with traffic restrictions! This tour is specially made for who wants to see many places and taste a bit of each monument without stressing deeply onto their history. With new models of bicycles selected for ladies, gentlemen or children, the itinerary is planned in order to show the different faces of Bologna:
This is not a race, this is a relaxing pleasant visit, taking advantage of the shade of the arcades, enjoying deserted squares, revealing secret angles. . . Many stops will allow us to enter some courtyards, churches and find the best typical shops and to enjoy one of the best gelato of the city:
Surprising and elegant, Bologna has basically 3 aspects: the elegance of its red buildings, the pride of its history and university which is the oldest in the world and the true italian everyday life palpable walking along any street , glancing at any window or food shop.

To try to believe!!!

  Itinerary:
There is no real itinerary I could plan in advance without knowing you first, as Bologna offers too much!
My knowledge of the city, however, enables me to elaborate the best routes, avoiding obstacles and traffic in order to deliver the best of and more:
The monumental area, NEPTUNE FOUNTAIN PALAZZO DEL COMUNE , its courtyard and the grand staircase, the medieval PALAZZO RE ENZO , the renaissance PODESTA' PALACE.
I will tell you why façade the of SAN PETRONIO church is unfinished and a few secrets about that huge building . The shrine of Bologna "the Learnt" : the ancient seat of the University and its new district, Santa Maria dei Servi, Casa Isolani, Santo Stefano square, San Domenico, the waterways, the ancient jewish ghetto and the many medieval towers. . . Special comfort stop and enjoy the best Ice cream on our way.
I will not often use the special cycling path as the real heart of Bologna is right where the old streets with old pavement are, right under the arcades, right on the cobbled squares . . .
