We spent a wonderful morning with Gabriele who took us to some beautiful places in the heart of Bologna along with some places the locals go. He collected is from our B&B on time. There were plenty of tips for eating along the way. It was a good pace and well worth it. Gabriele is a wonderful guide and easy to relate to. Thank you for a great tour.

Elisabeth was an excellent guide. She was well informed and showed us off the beaten track which was exactly what we asked for. Helped was getting a SIM card, where to eat and answered all our questions about Italian life. Definitely would recommend Elisabeth!
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
