Mirko, private guide in Bologna

HELLO, I’M MIRKO

I live in Bologna.
I work in Bologna.

About me

I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel for both work and leisure and to have met so many different people who have taken their time to share their city, their food, and their daily lives with me so that I could get a true glimpse of their culture. I believe the difference between just visiting a city and experiencing a city is always about the people who live there. Their warmth, laughter, and habits have made my experiences unforgettable and for that I am grateful. I always seek to pay back the favor whenever international friends come to visit and do so in the way that we Bolognese do best: by not only sharing our city’s millenary history but also its world-famous food! It’s no surprise that Bologna is known, among other things, as “la grassa”, the fat one. I love popping into one of the many historical “osterie” for a bite to eat after taking them for a stroll under the city’s porticos and narrow medieval streets and sharing lesser known anecdotes about Bologna and its illustrious citizens. When the weather is warm, ice cream is a must. (Ours is pretty amazing! Did you know Bologna even has a Gelato University? People from all over the world come here to learn how to make this creamy goodness!) If you’ll allow me to show you around, Bologna won’t just be a point on a map but a beloved place you will want to return to time and time again.
