Private walking tour with certified tour guide to discover Bologna. The Learned “La Dotta”, the Red “La Rossa”, the Fat “La Grassa”: this is how Bologna is defined, the capital of the rich Emilia Romagna. La Dotta for the presence of one of the oldest universities in Italy, which still today continues to attract Italian and foreign students and to maintain its active role as a cultural center. This tour departing from Piazza Nettuno, in front of the fountain, will proceed through Piazza Maggiore by visiting the Basilica of San Petronio and its sundial, the largest in the world.
The Basilica of San Petronio is the most important and impressive church in Bologna, as well as being the fifth largest church in the world. The construction work of the Basilica began in 1390, but went on for centuries. The guided tour continues to the Sala Borsa, the tempting streets in the Mercato di mezzo and up to the Two Towers. The two most important towers are that of the Asinelli and the Garisenda.
The Torre degli Asinelli was built between 1109 and 1119 by the family of the same name who, in addition to receiving social prestige, used it for military defense and sighting purposes. Continue towards Piazza Santo Stefano and finally, inside the ancient market of the Quadrilatero. Let yourself be intoxicated by discovering local products!
