Food tour & Tastings
A walking tour to discover the jewels of Bologna's artistic heritage (Piazza Maggiore, Basilica of San Petronio, the Two Towers and the Archiginnasio) and explore the amazing Medieval market. We will stop in the historical food shops to taste our local products (mortadella, prosciutto, salami, tigella bread, chocolate, rice cake), telling their legends and stories. The tour will show you the reason why Bologna is known in Italy and abroad as the "Learned", "Red" and. . . the "Fat". This is the ideal tour if you wish to "feel" the city.
The itinerary includes:
- A Walk through the medieval market and many stops to taste the typical food products (fine chocolate, typical cold cuts served with tigella bread and wine, rice cake)
- Piazza Maggiore, Neptune's Fountain, Basilica of Saint Petronio, medieval Galluzzi court and the Archiginnasio, the first unique seat of the University of Bologna

Micol has a passion for Bologna that made our tour with her very special. We had never been to the city, and visited on a day trip from Florence on the new superfast train. We started with a wonderful lunch at a place she recommended, then walked around the center city with her visiting markets, shops, the ancient university, and wine bars in the medieval borgo. Our focus was food and architecture, but the medical theater was an unexpected highlight. Her knowledge is deep, her style is gentle. Grazie!
