Although half a day could never be enough to absorb all that is Bologna, with a local Bologna host by your side, you can make the most of the time you do have. In La Dotta, La Grassa, la Rossa, just let us know your pace, vibe and what you’d most like to see, and your host will try their best to make it happen.

With a nickname which (affectionately) means “the learned, the fat, the red”, there’s plenty to choose from - whether you want to visit the Whispering Walls and a subterranean, ancient library, eat as much tortelloni and gelato as you can or you want to climb the steps of the Asinelli Tower for a view of those terracotta roofs, it’s waiting for you here.

Float on cloud nine as you nibble on a pistachio biscuit, drink prosecco at a bar with tables scattered across a piazza or get your walking shoes on and take in all the big sites like the Fontana di Nettuno, Piazza Maggiore and Basilica di San Petronia. Your host can’t wait to share their home’s highlights and hidden gems with you so, arrivederci and see you on the other side!
