A unique experience that will allow you to discover Palazzo d’Accursio, its Tower and the Municipal Art Collections.
Entering from the courtyard of Palazzo d’Accursio and climbing the “staircase of the horses”, up to the second floor, you will first enter the Clock Tower. Here, using your smartphone, you will listen to the audio guide that will lead you inside the rooms of the building, up to the beating heart of the tower: the mechanism that makes the clock work. You will hear anecdotes about how the palace and the tower have spanned the centuries to the present day and you will be able to look out over an unmissable view of the famous Piazza Maggiore.
At the end of the climb and the visit to the Clock Tower, you can visit the Municipal Art Collections, housed in the rooms that were once used as the residence of the Cardinal Legates. Again, with the help of the audio guide, you will be able to discover paintings, art objects, furniture, porcelain and fabrics ranging from the Middle Ages to today.
And to conclude with taste, you can enjoy a fantastic tasting of typical products of the Bolognese tradition with cold cuts, cheese, accompanied by a glass of wine.
The meeting point is in Piazza Nettuno in front of the statue of Neptune, 15 minutes before the time of entry to the tower. A member of our staff will welcome you to give you the entrance tickets of the tower and the food tasting vouchers.
This is not a guided tour, but you will have the help of an audio guide downloadable on your smartphone, which will allow you to make the visit in complete freedom.
