This tour was the best introduction we had to the history, culture, and cuisine of Bologna. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was easy to tell she genuinely loves Bologna and enjoys sharing all the wonderful aspects of her city with visitors. The tour itself was packed with incredible foods (don’t eat breakfast so you can fully enjoy all the opportunities). We were also provided with maps and nice shopping bags do we could return to the locations we visited and buy products (which we did!).
