You’ll spend a wonderful few hours with one of our local Bologna hosts getting yourself orientated in what many consider to be Italy’s food capital.

Bologna is somewhat off the beaten tourist track with Venice, Rome and Florence just a hop, skip and jump away, but its beauty lies in being so undiscovered.

Your host can’t wait to show you what makes this medieval stronghold so spectacular, and you will spend your time together strolling through the arcaded streets, known as porticos, ambling over piazzas, taking in some of the cities best known sites like the Two Towers and marvelling at the red roofs from your high vantage point (once you’ve climbed one of the towers) - all of which will help you map out the city.

Feel refreshed with some ice cold prosecco, or sip on a coffee in the elegant Piazza Santo Stefano.

Tell your local Bologna host what interests you, and they’ll be sure to fill you in on all the must-sees and hidden gems they feel you’ll love during your trip.

There can be no better way to kickstart your trip to Bologna!
