Micol M.

Bologna, BO, Italy

My name is Micol and I have been living in Bologna since my early years, when I was attending the "Edmondo De Amicis", the first public elementary school built in the city dating back 1898.

I then graduated in Communication sciences at the University of Bologna (the oldest in Europe!), with full marks and laude.
My passions are travels, art, history, and local cultures; I particularly love to communicate and interact with people. In 2006 I founded the cultural association Geniusloci with the purpose to promote the knowledge of my region. In 2013 I decided to turn my passions into a profession and I became an authorised tourist guide. So here I am waiting for you to visit Bologna and its region together!
My love for this city has grown bigger year after year. By now, every time I come back from a trip I experience such a comforting homey, welcoming, feeling.
The more I spend time planning new ways to present Bologna to the public the more I realise what a rich cultural heritage this city has to offer. The chance to work in such an environment represents a heavy burden, but a great privilege as well.

A Recent Review of this guide

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.
