El tour was very interesting. We were able to get to know the city history as well as many curiosities about it. Paolo is also a nice and dedicated person who is always willing to answer your questions and to give you some tips for making the most of your stay in Bologna.

Paolo has great knowledge about history, the city of Bologna and so much more. Since I didn´t have the deepest historical knowledge it was a bit hard at the beginning because Paola trys to give you as much information as possible. He even extended our tour time which was really nice! I am more than sure that people with deeper knowledge of history will be really satisfied. Besides of the historical facts he also provided us with interesting storys about traditional food and much more. He was really passionated and also gave us some personal thoughts which were really interesting. Furthermore he provided us with a lot of great restaurant recommendations for our further stay. Thanks again!! Since I have an appointment in Bologna next year I will definitly come back and try Paolos food tour. Looking forward to it and all the best from Frankfurt, Sven
