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! We will learn about its history, interesting facts, and uncover some of its secrets. Foodies will especially enjoy our time together, as we discuss the city's famous culinary traditions.

Great tour!! I really liked the places Deniz chose as well as her energy, authenticity, and the information she provided. In the end we tried some of their recommended food places, and she was on point in each one of those too, making the trip even more enjoyable :)

Deniz was a really great tour guide, both very knowledgeable about the city of Bologna, but also very friendly and fun. She also gave a lot of amazing recommendations for restaurants which came in handy! Due to the small group size, you really get to know the other people on the tour which is great as a solo traveller!
