Bologna is one of the richest and most interesting cities in Italy. While walking through the city with your guide, you will discover why it was given various nicknames: La Rossa (the red one), La Dotta (the learned one) and La Grassa (the fat one). This guided tour is a combination of art and eno-gastronomic traditions.
During the walking tour you will see some of the most important buildings. You will visit Piazza Maggiore, the city's main gathering place, which was built in the 13th century with its famous statue of Neptune, the basilica of San Petronio, the Medieval market, the Two Towers and the Archiginnasio, the first permanent seat of the University. You will then make a stop at Majani's, a traditional chocolate maker where solid chocolate was invented, and then you will visit Atti's, which is a must in Bologna, where you will hear the history of the tortellini and tagliatelle. The tour will end at Tamburini's where, while hearing the history of the Mortadella, you will taste some delicious local products such as Mortadella, Parmigiano Reggiano, and salami, all accompanied by local wine. Please note that in July and August Majani's chocolate shop is closed and will be replaced by Venchi's, the famous ice-cream makers.
