A Recent Review of this tour

Our group of 4 people really enjoyed our tour "Bologna in Depth " with Cinzia F. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Bologna city center. She pointed out many features of the churches and palaces, and revealed several interesting secrets of the buildings. She kept up a pleasant pace for our 3.5 hr tour, and pointed out toilet stops and a refreshing coffee shop. She kindly made a late lunch reservation for us at an osteria (restaurant) that was extremely popular and served up delicious meals
