Welcome to the beautiful, red city of Bologna! I'm Deniz and a certified tour leader issued by the Regione Emilia-Romagna, as well as a postgraduate student at the Università di Bologna. As a lover of travel and meeting new people, I was thrilled to discover Bologna and all it has to offer. When I first arrived in the city, I spent some time in hostels, where I had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people and explore the city together. I discover the city, I want to show you now!

Tour description

I love Bologna and am passionate about discovering its culinary treasures, which is why this tour was created to reveal the authentic essence of the city.

We will begin to explore the landmarks of Bologna. Then we'll see the city's most delicious, the oldest food markets. I'll introduce you to Bologna's traditional dishes.

This tour is for learning interesting facts, discovering Bologna's fun secrets and getting to know its food culture!
All my life, I've believed the culture, history, and lifestyle understand better through the food :)

What is the price?

To make my walking tour more intimate and personal, I have small groups. At the end of our time together, if you've had an enjoyable experience and gained valuable insights, you have the opportunity to show your appreciation through a tip. To support my small and intimate group setting, the suggested average contribution is minimum 15 euros per person. However, please feel entirely free to pay any amount that feels right to you.  Your generosity directly supports my small group tours, allowing me to maintain the intimate setting that create meaningful connections and a personalized adventure.

I had a wonderful time getting to know a little bit of Bologna with Deniz. Her love of the city was really evident, and by the end of the tour I saw Bologna with new eyes - I wish I had a couple more days to explore and eat here! She knew lots of City history, and was very helpful when answering our questions and suggesting more places to visit.

The tour was amazing and Denize had so much interesting information to share, from the historical university, food market to architecture.

Our tour of Bologna's city center was an exceptional experience, teaching us much of the areas architectural, political and culinary history. Deniz was a wonderful guide with an open and friendly personality.

It was such a wonderful experience and we enjoyed totally the walk with Deniz. She is great, has lots of interesting facts about Bologna and answers every question. You can‘t compare it with other free walks with a crowd of tourists - it‘s way better and you walk in a small group. Thank you so much, ist was a pleasure :-)
