Want to experience Bologna with all of your senses? Then this is definitely the tour that satisfies all of your expectations! Learn about the main historical facts while tasting the finest wines, enjoying some excellent pizza, prepare your own piece of pasta and hear the true story of those typical local specialties such as mortadella and parmiggiano. And to top it all off, there is a delicious cone of gelatto waiting for you at the end. Not to mention the personal care by a local guide. Particularly appreciated the further tips of where to drink the best coffee or eat the best plate of cold meats. Highly recommended!

He knows Bologna very well and you can feel his real love and passion for his own city; we discovered hidden gems of the city and tasted some amazing food! Bologna is such a beautiful city and this food tour is a great way of walking around and see the city while tasting delicious food and learning important facts and secret about the local cuisine...not to be missed!

We booked the tour very late on Friday night for Saturday afternoon but nevertheless Andrea was extemely accommodating and organised everything quickly for us. Our guide Caterina was very friendly, knowledgeable and obviously passionate about Bologna, it's food and coffee. We did the Pizza & Gelato tour with our two children both under 12 and they both really enjoyed it. We should mention that our guide was very engaging with the children which made it a nice experience for them. We found it a great way to orientate ourselves in the city. We followed up on several of Caterina's tips for coffee, bread and food the next day we were not disappointed. Overall we found it a great way to start our stay in Bologna. We'll definitely visit again and next time we'll try the classic tour.
