      The best private food tours in Bologna

      Italy is a must-see destination for foodies, and Bologna is arguably its culinary capital. Food is part of the fabric of society, and the proudly Italian reverence for cuisine is more evident here than anywhere else. Rich flavors, fresh pasta, and delectable delicacies like cured meats and cheeses form part of a culinary tradition that has influenced the entire country. From tiny trattorias to vast buffet spreads (and a few Michelin-starred meals, of course), Bologna’s best restaurants take many different forms. But on our food tours in Bologna, no matter where you eat, it will be strikingly evident why Bologna is Italy’s unrivaled foodie haven.

      A big bite of Bologna

      In Italy’s charismatic culinary capitals, deciding what – and where – to eat is bound to be one of your biggest battles. If it’s authentic experiences you’re looking for on your Bologna food tours, not the watered-down eateries catering only to tourists, a City Unscripted food tour is the only way to go. Food tours of Bologna with our private guides won’t be hindered by indecipherable maps and chalkboard menus written in rough Italian. Your host will play the dual role of your personal restaurant reviewer and menu decipherer, pointing out all the city’s most popular places to eat.

      The only way to understand what makes Bologna one of the best food destinations in the world is to book food tours of Bologna with us.

      Plates to suit your palate

      There’s no better time than Bologna food tours to taste the cuisine that put the city on the culinary map. You could start small, with a plate of Bolognese nibbles and a glass of wine at a local aperitivo spot, before moving on to something more substantial, like silky Tagliatelle al Ragù or freshly-baked focaccia at an osteria. Maybe you’ll try a selection of snacks at the iconic Mercato delle Erbe market in the historic city center, or perhaps you’ll taste the equally delicious flavors of Bologna for vegans before ending your day with a creamy gelato – traditional or dairy-free!

        "Alles tip-top und sehr individuell. Nach der Buchung habe ich einen Fragebogen erhalten um unsere Präferenzen zum Guide und der Tour anzugeben. Guide Mirko war supernett und hat viel Interessantes zu Bologna sagen können. Es war sehr heiss (38 Grad), aber er hat die Route so ausgesucht, dass wir vorallem im Schatten waren und auch zwei Stopps in Gelaterias (geniales Eis!) eingeplant. Alles war sehr entspannt. Der ganzen Familie (14 J Kind) hat es gut gefallen. Jederzeit wieder." "Everything tip-top and very individual. After booking I received a questionnaire to indicate our preferences for the guide and the tour. Guide Mirko was super nice and was able to say a lot of interesting things about Bologna. It was very hot (38 degrees), but he chose the route so that we were mainly in the shade and also planned two stops in gelaterias (brilliant ice cream!). Everything was very relaxed. The whole family (14 J child) liked it. Any time."

        Mirko was a terrific host as we discovered Bologna. He was a great advocate for his city. He was knowledgeable and insightful. He has lived in Bologna for his whole life. We enjoyed the tour and ask for Mirko!

        Mirko was an excellent guide! It was apparent that he loved his city of Bologna. We had a very informed tour of the center of Bologna with key insight to some of the secrets of the community. Mirko was knowledgeable, accommodating and insightful. He was also very patient. Highly recommend the tour and ask for Mirko
