About the tour

Have you ever wondered how the city of over 100 towers became a city of just 22 towers?, What is Ragu?, Why the Basilica of Sant Petronio was not fully finished? You will have the answer for these, and much more interesting facts during the 1:45 minutes that I will pass with you in the city center of Bologna!

-Piazza Maggiore (main square with the most important buildings)

-Archiginnasio (First University in Europe)

-Tower Galluzzi

-Quadrilatero district (Food area)

I will not talk just about history, but also about the food and cultural lifestyle in Bologna. So lets discover it together and lets have some fun!

Ela was great, we were a small group so we had plenty of time to explore the city and Ela made the tour very informative and interesting. We had the opportunity to do a tasting of balsamic that I found super delicious! Thanks Ela!
