Guided tour of the center of Bologna
Bologna is a must-see destination for anyone visiting Italy.
Home of the oldest European university, its center features high medieval towers, amazing secluded squares, red brick facades of 18th century palaces, kilometers of porticoes lining the streets, early Reinassance terracotta works of art: all that makes this city unique.
But there's more to see in Bologna, like pedestrian streets filled with markets, traditional food shops and gorgeous stylish boutiques.
Make the most of your visit with a walking tour that will take you in the historical center of the city, away from crowded paths, to discover medieval buildings and charming corners.
This 2, 30 hours private tour will lead you in a pleasant walk through the main sights of the city . You will visit Piazza Maggiore, surrounded by buildings that date from the Medieval period and admire its impressive Basilica of Saint Petronio; then you will see the Archiginnasio, the ancient seat of the University, and visit its stunning anatomical theater; a stroll thorugh the tiny back streets of the old market area of the so called Quadrilatero will lead you to admire a work of art of an early Reinassance Master, the Lamentation over the Dead Christ in the Church of S. Maria della Vita, and finish with an extraordinary view of the two towers, the landmark of the town.
