From art and churches up to gastronomic excellence of Bologna, chief town of Emilia-Romagna.


The heart of Bologna with its main red coloured buildings: the City Hall, the Podestà Palace, the most famous Neptune's Fountain, the King Enzo's Palace and the Sala Borsa.
You'll admire the Basilica of Saint Petronio (visit inside according to opening hours), the only one with the longest sundial in Europe.
The tour will continue with a visit of the first seat of the University of Bologna, Archiginnasio (visit inside, closed on Sunday) and its famous Anatomy Theatre dated 1637.
After we will walk through the historical Food Market towards the gothic Merchants Palace.
Then finally we'll pass through Isolani Court with its old wooden arcade, one of the almost 40 km porticos going through the city centre and we will reach the Two Leaning Towers, Asinelli and Garisenda which are undoubtedly the signature symbols of the city.
