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 1:30 minutes that I will pass with you in the city center of Bologna!

The places that we are going to visit are:

-Piazza Maggiore (with Nettuno statue, Palazzo Communale, Palazzo Re Enzo, Biblioteca Sala Borsa, Palazzo dei Banchi, Palazzo del Podesta, Basilica di San Petronio)

-Archiginnasio (First University in Europe)

-Tower Galluzzi

-Church Santa Maria della Vita

- Mercato di Mezzo

-Basilica Santo Stefano and 2 Towers

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!
