Our guide, Erika, took us on a walking tour of Bologna. Although we had previously visited Bologna, she showed us places we wouldn’t have discovered on our own. Walking through the city with a local resident is much more enjoyable than trying to navigate on your own. Erika was very knowledgeable and an excellent guide!!
Elisabeth gave us a great tour of Bologna, giving us a view of Bologna that we would not have otherwise had. Plus she was a very interesting person herself and fun to be with. We have already taken advantage of things to eat and places to visit that Elisabeth told us about. Thanks so much Elisabeth!
Claudia showed us parts of the city we would have never seen. She has a lot of knowledge about the history and recommended the best restaurants, ice cream stores, etc. She even made us an appointment at one of the best restaurants for lunch.
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
