Overview Location: Bologna, Italy
On this enchanting private walking tour through the city of Bologna you will visit numerous, interesting and off-the-beaten-path places. The tour commences in the largest square, Piazza Maggiore, located in the ancient part of Bologna. Its medieval buildings have witnessed Bologna’s vibrant public life and intense economic activity for centuries. Nowadays, these historical sites are combined with the latest functional places: Sala Borsa Public Library, the Municipal offices, shops and Cafés.

A network of porticos along the streets of the center makes this city unique. Walking under the porticos, protected from the sun and the rain, makes it possible to reach many important museums, galleries, main squares and religious buildings, which holds an unexpected patrimony of works of art.

This walking tour will obviously be visiting the Basilica of San Petronio and the two "leaning" towers of Bologna. One of the towers was the first seat of the University of Bologna: the Archiginnasio, which still contains unique frescoes and an Anatomic Theater that we also will visit.

The evidence of Bologna's prestigious history is spread out in many places throughout the center. On the Bologna Walking Tour you will also get the chance to explore the Quadrilatero area with its maze of small streets, and the historical market with its colors and flavors, bringing us back to the ancient times.
