On very short notice and on a cold morning, Micol provided us with a well-organized, thoughtful and knowledgeable introduction to Bologna. She pointed out some hidden gems, explained aspects of the local history and architecture we likely would have overlooked, told us about and showed us various food and wine offerings of the area that might interest us and cheerfully answered all our questions. Had our time allowed, we would have engaged her for specialty tours of the area, as well.
