Ciao! I'm Gabriele, proudly born and raised in Bologna. I'm a certified tour leader in Emilia Romagna and with me, you can discover the original charm and lively character of this fascinating city, get insider stories and discover hidden gems! If it's true that the place where we are born says so much about us, then my city and generally my region Emilia Romagna represent my best business card. I love good food, good company and traditions, but at the same time I'm a curious globetrotter, always ready to embrace diversity. This last aspect has led me to explore different cultures, languages, and countries: I lived in Estonia, Spain, Germany, and Canada at different stages of my life for studying and working reasons (I'm also Digital Marketing Specialist so, luckily, a job that can be done from different part of the world). Of every place, I keep unique memories; this is because I have been fortunate enough to share my experiences with locals, and I know how this aspect can make a stay unique. After many years living abroad, I returned home with a newfound appreciation of the place I'm from. Follow along as I explore, with fresh eyes, my hometown Bologna and surrounding region of Emilia-Romagna.

Excellent city experience and Ilaria is a fantastic host! Extremely knowledgeable about history, art and very passionate. Excellent English and great personality. She went the extra mile getting me some special food the next day to try. Highly recommended!
Ilaria has made our day in Bologna. Being very communicative, outgoing and knowledgeable she made Bologna accessible so one can feel and understand the spirit of the city and its people. Thank you Ilaria for all.
