HI! I'm Ilaria, your friendly and enthusiastic guide who will drive you through the enchanting streets of Bologna. I have lived in Bologna since I was born and despite having been abroad to study and travel I have always returned here to live because I consider Bologna a small pearl. I have always been captured by the history mixed with innovation that can be felt in the streets of this city, the mix of young students from all over Italy and the centuries of history creates, in my opinion, a particular atmosphere worth discovering. Walking around Bologna you can always come across something new and my curiosity often makes me wander randomly through the wonderful streets, without a specific destination, but to discover some new small shops, bookshops, or gardens. My open-minded and curious nature often lead me to want to know more about my own city and combine my knowledge of history with the historical notions of Bologna. As a self-proclaimed expert in the city center's history, I can share with you insights and anecdotes that you won't find in guidebooks. Come with me to live an adventure and discover new places where local history and secret gems come together to create a stunning experience.
