Meet your private guide in Bologna city centre and beginning of the walking tour. This city is not as famous as other destinations such as Florence, Rome and Venice; but it is definitely worth a visit as well, since it presents several interesting attractions. This tour combines art and culture with food and wine, since your guide will lead you to visit both the most important cultural attractions and the historical "botteghe"S, the traditional food shops of Bologna founded in the late 19th century or at the beginning of the 20th century, as well as to the medieval street market. There you will have the possibility of tasting chocolate, local salami and many other specialties. During the visit, you will admire Piazza Maggiore, the very heart of Bologna, with its palaces, fountains and churches. You will observe the beauty of Europe’s oldest University, of the medieval market and of Bologna symbols, the two Asinelli and Garisenda towers built during the Middle-Age. You will learn Bologna history and stroll down its Romantic arcades.
