What you can expect Bologna is known worldwide not only because of its great historic and artistic heritage, but also for its status as the Gastronomic Capital of Italy. You’ll be mesmerized by the architectural characteristics of the city, such as the “Porticos” or the old defensive towers, and amazed by its cultural history, highlighted through the medieval Jewish “Ghetto”, the oldest University in the western world or the incredible complex of the Church of S.Stephen. After a pleasant ride through the main landmarks of the city, you will pass along scented, crowded and narrow streets of the oldest Marketplace of the city, where  antique “Botteghe culinarie”, delicatessen and wine bars await to inspire you. the tour includes 2 stops: one Aperitif and one food tasting
