Downtown evening tour for foodies and art lovers

Home to the first university in Europe, worldwide famous for its food and wine tradition (Yes, we have the original Bolognaise Sauce!) and also a thriving place for modern and contemporary culture (music, cinema, graffiti).

Join me for an evening stroll in the city centre, I will show you Bologna's most iconic features together with its newest trends.
And if you think walking is tiring, please do not worry! A cozy table in one of the locals' favorite venues will be waiting for you at the end of the tour for a typical food and wine tasting.


The tour starts in Piazza Maggiore and its surroundings (City Hall, King Enzo's Palace Neptune's Fountain and square, Sala Borsa Public Library, Palazzo dei Banchi and Basilica of Saint Petronio).
It continues along Via Rizzoli up to the Two Leaning Towers and then down Via Zamboni, the hearth of modern University quarters.
From there we will walk to the iconic S. Steven Square, with its porticos, palaces and the church complex, and then back to our meeting point.
Next, to the meeting point, we will visit the Mercato di Mezzo and sit down for wine and food tasting.

Due to opening times restrictions, the tour does not include visits inside the monuments.
As a Local Qualified Guide, I have access to all landmarks.

A Recent Review of this tour

Isadora was very good at showing us sites I had not know about like the Roman ruins and going to the top of St Peters for the beautiful view. She may need to learn a little more about some of the sites as she didnt always have all the answers to our questions. But I felt she was very knowledgeable and professional.
