Guided tour of Bologna
Renowned for its incredible cuisine, Bologna is also rich in tradition and charming architecture. With your local, expert guide leading the way, explore the city’s main highlights, including its charming churches, the 15th-century Piazza Maggiore, and the iconic Two Towers.
Hear about Bologna’s long history as you wander around lively squares and narrow streets. The city has acquired many nicknames over the centuries: The Fat One (La Grassa) due to its culinary tradition, The Red One (La Rossa) for the color of its roofs, and The Learned One (La Dotta) for its scholarly past.
Explore Piazza Maggiore and marvel at the historic buildings surrounding the square, such as Palazzo d'Accursio, the old Town Hall, and the Basilica of San Petronio—a church dedicated to the patron saint of the city, Saint Petronius.
Stroll through the city's elegant and extensive porticoes; there are 24 miles (38 km) of sidewalks covered by porticoes in the city’s historical center.
Continue to Piazza della Mercanzia and Piazza Nettuno, and then reach the city’s main landmarks, the Two Towers. The 2 prominent towers lean away from each other, and they are called the Asinelli and the Garisenda.
